On his first visit to Kerala after assuming office, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a strong attack on the ruling Congress-led UDF and the CPI(M), accusing them of indulging in “loot” of the state by turns during their tenure in power and hiding their “sins”.
Addressing a public meeting organised by the party, he referred to the BJP’s success in the local bodies election last month and asserted it has emerged as the “third force” in Kerala that will replace the two fronts in the next year’s Assembly elections and transform the state’s fortunes.
“Unfortunately, Kerala’s politics is such that two coalitions have been ruling the state and looting its people.
One coalition comes to power and loots. People get angry every five years and throw it out and another coalition comes. This cycle has been continuing so far. Both the coalitions are busy hiding each other’s sins and then continue with their loot.
“Now the people of Kerala need not get angry any more. A third force has emerged in Kerala. It is like Lord Shiva’s third eye, which will destroy the sins and free the state from the evils and corruption. The emergence of the third force will change Kerala’s future and bring prosperity and peace in the state,” Modi said.
