via published on April 12, 2011

KOZHIKODE: Kerala politics desperately needs a transformation and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is seeking votes for making a shift from vote bank politics to development politics in the state, Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP leader Narendra Modi has said. He also added that both the fronts in the state had been supporting the terrorist outfits.

“If needed, Kerala can overcome Gujarat in terms of overall development. But, it is impossible if the state remains in the grip of the LDF and the UDF. I am here to request you to vote for a change this time. I assure you that the BJP MLAs can work for the development of the state,” said Narendra Modi, while speaking at the election campaign meeting in Kozhikode, on Sunday.

The BJP leader alleged that more terrorist activities are taking birth in Kerala than in Kashmir. “Every investigation on terrorism carried out in the country finally reaches Kerala. Such extremist activities are growing with impunity in the state because both the LDF and the UDF are supporting them,” he said.

Pointing out the campaign by the LDF and the UDF that one or two BJP MLAs cannot make a change in the state, Narendra Modi said, “Anna Hazare is a living example of the fact that one man can create changes in the country. BJP MLAs will adorn the role of ‘umpires’ in the Kerala Legislative Assembly and will point out the right and wrong of the LDF and the UDF. Years ago, the BJP had only three MLAs in Gujarat. Like umpires, they pointed out the wrong policies and earned the trust of the people. Now, the BJP is ruling continuously in Gujarat with convincing majority,” he said.

The Gujarat chief minister also listed out the achievements of the BJP government.

“Earlier, Kerala was one among the seven most developed states in the country. Now, it is in the 17th position. However, Gujarat has become one of the most developed states. Similarly, the agriculture growth rate of Gujarat stands at 11 per cent while that in Kerala is just 2 percent. Gujarat was not in the tourism map of the country years ago. Now, it has made 40 per cent growth in the tourism sector. While Gujarat made a giant leap in the industrial sector with a growth rate of 3.5 per cent, Kerala has achieved only 3.5 per cent growth,” he said.

Modi also said that the Congress leaders who are roaming in the state have not even uttered a word on the skyrocketing of prices of the essential commodities in the state.
