Kozhikode: Addressing a rally in Kerala’s Kozhikode, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday slammed both the Congress and Communists for their blatant double standards when it came to women empowerment. PM Modi said that the so-called defenders of women rights were the ones at the forefront of defending the brutal and barbaric practice of Triple Talaq.

He said, “I want to ask outdated communists and fake liberals, why are you silent on political violence in Kerala, what are your compulsions? I assure my fellow Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) karyakartas, your struggles won’t go in vain. Their bullying won’t weaken us.”  (Catch All Action of Lok Sabha Elections 2019 Here)

Asserting both the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) and Left Democratic Front (LDF) led by the Communist Party of India (Marxist) have brought a ‘culture of political violence’ in the state, the PM further said that both the parties ruled for around 10 years in Kerala but have failed people of the state.

“Electing the Congress and Communists is like giving a license to their leaders to engage in top-level corruption,” the PM added. PM Modi also slammed both the parties over alleged attacks and killing of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and BJP workers in Kerala.

“Kerala is a land of peace and harmony but insensitive Communists and Congress have brought a culture of political violence. Several patriotic RSS and BJP Karyakartas have been attacked and killed for serving the people,” the PM said.

Earlier today,  PM Modi, while rallying in Koppal in Karnataka for Lok Sabha elections, tore into the Congress-JD(S) alliance and said they were only after meeting their own selfish needs.

Targeting the Congress-JD(S) alliance in the state, he had said, “Congress-JD(S) dono hi party janta se jitni kati hui hai utni hi sirf aur sirf apne parivar se judi hui hai. Inke liye aapki aavshyaktaein, iski unko parwah nahi. Unki prathmikta hai khud ka swaarth, parivar ka swarth aur unka mission kya hai? (Both Cong-JD(S) are as distant from the public as they are rooted in their families. They don’t care about your needs. Their priority is their own selfish interests).”
