Amit Shah launches a blistering attack on both the LDF and the UDF, saying that the two fronts were engaged in a competition for corruption
Thiruvananthapuram: Union Home Minister Amit Shah announced ‘New Kerala with Modi’ as the NDA slogan for the assembly election at a function here, marking the conclusion of state BJP chief K Surendran’s ‘Vijay Yatra’ and the launch of the alliance’s poll campaign.
Amit Shah launched a blistering attack on both the LDF and the UDF, saying that the two fronts were engaged in a competition for corruption, in the process making the state a laggard in development and progress.
As a result of government rotating between LDF and the UDF, Kerala, which used to be number one in literacy, social reforms and development, is today number one in corruption, political violence, crimes against women and the spread of Covid infection, he said.
While it was solar during the UDF rule, it is dollar in case of the Pinarayi Vijayan government, Shah pointed out and posed a series of questions about dollar and gold smuggling for the chief minister to answer.
