In a two-day visit to the southern state of Kerala, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the Shakthikendra Incharges Sammelan in Kochi, where he took a critical stance against the Left Democratic Front (LDF) and United Democratic Front (UDF). Modi asserted that their track record has been “synonymous with a history of corruption,” urging Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers to disseminate this message to the public.
During the speech, Modi emphasized the BJP’s unique position as the sole party in India with a proven track record of swift development and a clear vision for the future. He highlighted a recently released report, stating that 25 crore people were lifted from poverty in the last nine years in the country. This achievement, according to Modi, stands in stark contrast to the decades-long ‘Garibi Hatao’ slogan of the Congress party.
Reflecting on the Nari Shakti Sammelan in Thrissur, the Prime Minister commended the potential exhibited by Kerala BJP party workers. He acknowledged the strength of the organization, attributing the success of such a significant conference to their dedicated efforts. Modi underscored that the BJP is distinguished as the only political party with a track record of fast-paced development and a visionary outlook for the future.
The Prime Minister’s remarks signal a renewed emphasis on the BJP’s commitment to economic progress and eradication of poverty. By contrasting the BJP’s achievements with his critique of the LDF and UDF, Modi aims to position the party as a credible alternative for voters in Kerala. As the political landscape in the state evolves, the impact of Modi’s statements on public opinion and the upcoming elections remains to be seen.
