BJP supporters use image tweeted by porn star for propaganda as Amit Shah leaves Kerala

BJP President, Amit Shah, has been in Kerala understandably to drum up support for the saffron party in an otherwise secular God’s own country. Billed as Kerala Janraksha Yatra, Shah was joined by other leaders to create a fresh buzz about his party in the state.

However, very early into his 15-day high-octane campaign, Shah skipped a scheduled event prompting many to speculate that his last-minute withdrawal from a high-profile two-week campaign was due to poor crowd response.

Shah was supposed to lead party workers into Pinarayi, the home village of chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan but the BJP announced that he cancelled the trip due to compelling reasons, reported Hindustan Times.

Indian Express reported that on Wednesday, the BJP president was expected to attend programmes in Mangalore, which, too, were cancelled. The last minute withdrawal by Shah has come as a huge embarrassment to the local BJP leadership, which has been desperately trying to gain a foothold in Kerala. The party has been raising the issue of violence against RSS workers to grab media headlines. Channels loyal to BJP and RSS have provided more than adequate coverage to the political violence in the state.

While in Kerala, the BJP supporters made desperate attempts to portray the BJP chief’s road show as a huge success. So that the BJP president is seen to be extraordinarily popular in Kerala, his supporters took to social media platforms showing images of massive crowds, who they implied had gathered to take part in Shah’s yatra.

However, social media users were quick to highlight that the image of the ‘crowd’ was not from Shah’s yatra but porn-star Sunny Leone’s recent trip to Kochi in Kerala.

The photo on Facebook was circulated by a page called ‘Outspoken,’ which is a right-leaning troll page. The page quickly deleted the image as soon as social media users began to publicly embarrass its admins.
