Congress, Communist parties enacting drama in Kerala: Narendra Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today accused Congress and Communists in Kerala of doing ‘dramabaji’ by engaging in serving each other and not serving the people.

Continuing his tirade against them, he said while Congress was deep in corruption, Communists were linked to violence.

The two were doing ‘dramabaji’ (enacting drama) in Kerala as they help each other in times of need and not keen on emergence of a third force, he told an election meeting at nearby Tripunithura, attended by a large number of people, who braved showers to hear him.

Both were engaged in ‘serving each other’ and not serving the people, he charged winding up his second and final leg of electioneering for the May 16 assembly elections, in which the BJP is seeking to make its maiden entry in the state legislature.

He alleged the Congress-led UDF and CPI(M)-headed LDF help each other in times of need.

“There is an agreement between Congress and Communists.  They do not want any third force to work for Kerala,” Modi said indirectly referring to the bipolar politics of the two fronts that have ruled the state alternately for decades.

“It is a contract rule between Congress and Communists like odd-even. For five years Congress will rule and for another five years Communists will rule,” he said.

UDF and LDF were fooling the educated electorate here, he said, adding “Why don’t you understand this.”

“They have made such a ‘chavi’ (impression) that they are two different parties. These two parties are not different.  They are one,” Modi said pointing to the Congress-CPI-M tie up in West Bengal.

The Prime Minister said whenever Congress was in need of help at the Centre, Communists have supported them.

“In Kerala they are doing dramabaji... They are not fighting each other but enacting a drama,” he added.
