The event was also attended by E Sreedharan.
While addressing, E Sreedaharan, 88, said that people ask me "why I entered politics at this age" to which he answers I worked on many projects for the country. At this age too, I have enough energy to work and I want to use it for the development of Kerala so I joined BJP.
Accompanied by the party co-workers and few ministers, Amit Shah felicitated Mr Sreedharan with a shawl at the function.
Kerala BJP chief K Surendran praising the BJP said, "Only BJP can save Kerala. People here are seeking a change from the corrupt fronts of LDF and Congress. The reformers have dreamed of a Kerala which is not this Kerala".
Sreedharan joined BJP last month. While joining the party, he also expressed his wish to contest the Assembly elections in Kerala. "People know very well what is good for them and what is good for the state. I am very confident they will elect BJP to power. I am expecting a big victory," he said.
