Visiting BJP president Amit Shah braved pouring rain in the open to exhort enthusiastic party cadres to work towards achieving a 'Congress-mukt' Kerala during elections to the Assembly due early next year.

Shah said this while inaugurating a rain-marred non-stop day-night sit-in organised by the local cadres in front of the Government Secretariat here that was kicked off last evening.


The demonstration was held to protest acts of alleged corruption, nepotism and malfeasance by the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) government led by Oommen Chandy.

Shah used the occasion to mockingly greet the state government for having completed four years in office even as it thrived on pervasive corruption.

Around the same time, at a different location in the city, Chief Minister Chandy was addressing partymen to mark the completion of four years in office.


The BJP president said that the Narendra Modi government at the Centre had put the country's future back on rail. It is better that Kerala votes in a BJP government to put itself onto the mainstream growth track.

Prime Minister Modi's growth agenda had received tremendous appreciation while he travelled abroad. The world's recognition of the Prime Minister reflects on the people of the country at large.

It was just the opposition that has refused to convinced of the good tidings being generated in this manner. He dared the Congress and other parties to prove even a single charge against Modi.
