He was addressing a press conference here after a state leadership meeting of the BJP-led NDA.

He said the front leaders and workers would carry out foot marches in all Lok Sabha constituencies across the state in January.

The NDA has also decided to visit all Christian houses in the state with the Christmas message of PM Modi.

"Not just the BJP leaders but all the leaders of the NDA will visit Christian houses across the state with the Prime Minister's message," Surendran said.

He said they would utilise the opportunity to expose the alleged communal appeasement policy of the Congress-led UDF and the CPI (M)-headed LDF.

Listing out various programmes being planned by the NDA ahead of the upcoming general elections, he said the front would complete it's district mandalam conventions in December.

From January last and throughout the month of February, massive campaign marches would be carried out across Kerala under the aegis of NDA.

"PM Modi has agreed to take part in a NDA programme in Kerala in the first week of January," Surendran added.

As part of the expansion of the NDA, the Eknath Shinde faction of the Shiv Sena would be made a part of the front in the state, the leader added.

Criticising the Pinarayi Vijayan-led LDF government in the state , the BJP chief said it was not cooperating with the 'viksit bharat sankalp yatra' of the Centre.

The Left government was adamant that the Centre's development programmes should not reach the people of the southern state, he alleged.

Various BJP and NDA leaders also took part in the press conference.
