Kannur: BJP national president Amit Shah will arrive at Kannur international airport, Kerala, on Saturday. The Kannur airport will be inaugurated on December 9. It is reported that Amit Shah will land at Kannur for the inauguration of BJP Kannur district committee office called ‘Mararji Mandir’ on Saturday.

"Amit Shah's arrival can also make some changes in the Sabarimala issue I guess. I hope one of the reasons for his arrival may be the Sabarimala issue," said Aruraj Mahesh, a BJP activist.

BJP state cell co-ordinator said to media that Amit Shah would arrive at Kannur airport on Saturday morning in a private flight. He will then travel in a car to the programme venue at Thalikkavu. The committee office will be inaugurated at 10 AM. He will address the gathering in a public meeting at Thalikkavu ground.

He will visit family members of the deceased BJP activists namely Uthaman and Ramith at Pinarayi. MLA O Rajagopal, BJP state president P Sreedharan Pillai, Union minister Alphons Kannanthanam and BJP national secretary H Raja will also attend the event.

"I don't think Amit Shah will be coming for Sabarimala issue, that too in Kannur, because our land is of the Left and has been so for very long," said Surendran, Left activist.

BJP in Pathanamthitta has been fighting for the cause of Ayyappa devotees with the aim to retain religious Hindu beliefs. Will Amit Shah address the Sabarimala issue? This is something that true devotees of the BJP camp are hoping for right now. Many devotees, in fact, allege that they don't have any hope from the state government and the Travancore Devaswom Board.
