LDF and UDF ruining Kerala in rotation: BJP
Pathanamthitta, Apr 10 (UNI) Calling the LDF and UDF two sides of the same coin, BJP National vice-president M Venkaiah Naidu today the BJP was the only credible alternative before the voters in the coming Kerala assembly elections.
He said the voters will decide whether to allow the ''corrupt government'' to continue or not.
Addressing an election meeting here, Mr Naidu alleged the LDF and UDF governments had been ''ruling and ruining the state'' in rotation with impunity.
Unemployment, rising prices of essential commodities and atrocities against women were on the rise in the state. Lakhs of people were leaving their home land in search of jobs, he added.
Depression leading to suicide had reached alarming proportions and the successive governments had been turning a blind eye to poverty eradication programmes, he alleged.
In Delhi, the Congress and the CPI(M) were ruling together, but in Kerala they indulged in ''shadow fights'' to fool the common man, Mr Naidu charged and claimed that the BJP was the only party in the country which decried dynastic rule.
He said the present Congress was a ''duplicate Congress'' and the CPI(M) ''capitalist.'' For BJP, ''Hindutva'' was a way of life and not a religion, he said. In a humorous vein, Mr Naidu said at the Centre, there were three Prime Ministers.
