Vellappally has claimed that the NDA won't work in Kerala unless it cozies up to minorities.
Alappuzha First Class Magistrate Court II had on Thursday ordered to make Vellappally Natesan an accused in the case.
The ruling came in a plea filed by Mahesan's family.
In the report submitted by the Investigation team at the Anti-Corruption Special Court, BJP national general secretary B L Santhosh, Jaggu Swami a Keralite, and B Srinivas have been named accused, besides Thushar Vellappally.
The action come after Thushar failed to appear for questioning in the case, also known as Operation Lotus.
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao accused Tushar of orchestrating ‘Operation Lotus’, the strategy to engineer mass defections from rival parties.
Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao had said Thushar was behind an alleged BJP bid to poach TRS MLAs.
As per reports, the search was based on information that the person involved in ‘Operation Kamala’ was in Kochi.
He said that he meets people from different parts of the country regularly, and he is not bothered about their political lenience nor checks their party allegiance.
The Telangana chief minister has said the BDJS leader from Kerala was acting on the direction of Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
