Trissur, Dec 14: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, Dec 14 asserted that BJP has emerged as the "third force" in Kerala that will replace the two fronts led by Congress and CPI(M) in the next year's Assembly elections and transform the state's fortunes.
Likening the third force to the 'third eye' of Lord Shiva in this temple town, where the famous Wadakunathar Temple for Shiva is located, he said it would destroy the "evils" of the two fronts, an apparent reference to the Congress-led UDF and CPI(M)-led Left Front.
"Unfortunately, Kerala's politics is such that two coalitions have been ruling the state and looting its people. One coalition comes to power and loots. People get angry every five years and throw it out and another coalition comes. This cycle has been continuing so far. Both the coalitions are busy hiding each other's sins and then continue with their loot. "
Now the people of Kerala need not get angry any more. A third force has emerged in Kerala. It is like Lord Shiva's third eye, which will destroy the sins and free the state from the evils and corruption.
The emergence of the third force will change Kerala's future and bring prosperity and peace in the state," Modi said.
The Prime Minister, who was on his first visit to Kerala after assuming office, was addressing a public meeting organised by his party at the Thekkinkad ground.
