PM Modi campaigns in Tamil Nadu, Kerala ahead of general elections

Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Tamil Nadu and Kerala on Friday for election campaign rallies ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha polls scheduled to take place in April-May this year.

Tamil Nadu Visit

During his visit to Tamil Nadu, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that the DMK-Congress’ INDIA bloc can never make Tamil Nadu a developed state due to its “history of scams and corruption.” 

Addressing a rally in Kanyakumari, the PM expressed confidence in the growing momentum emerging from India’s southern coast, indicating its far-reaching impact.

PM Modi highlighted the central government’s focus on enhancing Tamil Nadu’s port infrastructure, mentioning the recent inauguration of Chidambaranar Port in Thoothukudi. He also emphasised the government’s support for fishermen, including financial aid for modern boats and their inclusion in the Kisan Credit Card scheme.

Additionally, PM Modi talked about BJP’s positive welfare initiatives, contrasting them with alleged scams associated with the INDI Alliance. He pointed out achievements during his tenure such as the implementation of optical fiber and 5G internet.

Kerala Visit

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday hit out at the left parties in Kerala, calling them ‘incompetent’ and said that the state has endured hardship under their governance.

Addressing the public campaign in Pathanamthitta for candidates of the BJP-led NDA, PM Modi that the people of the state will benefit only if the cycle of consecutive Left Democratic Front (LDF) and United Democratic Front (UDF) governments is broken.

The Prime Minister expressed confidence in BJP winning seats from Kerala in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, declaring that the party will break all records in the state this time.

‘Kerala will come out of the circle of LDF-UDF and give Modi the opportunity to serve Kerala the most. I promise you that Modi will leave no stone unturned for the development of Kerala… Lotus is going to bloom in Kerala this time,” he said.

The Prime Minister is scheduled to be on a two-day visit to Telangana, starting Friday evening.
