PM Modi's challenge to INDIA front ahead of Lok Sabha Polls: 'It hurts our faith, BJP will defeat it in Kerala'

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “INDI alliance only knows one thing, INDI alliance keeps hurting our faith, they made our temples and festivals, mediums for loot.” In his outreach to women in Kerala, he promised eight “Modi guarantees” ahead of the Lok Sabha election 2024.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the Opposition's INDIA block on Wednesday and said only the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) “will defeat INDI alliance in Kerala." He accused the INDIA front of hindering growth and development in Kerala. The Prime Minister argued only the BJP and National Democratic Alliance (NDA) can bring development in the southern state.

The Prime Minister said, “The INDI alliance only knows one thing, INDI alliance keeps hurting our faith, they made our temples and festivals, mediums for loot." His statement came just ahead of the Lok Sabha Election this year.

“The kind of politics that is being played with 'Thrissur Pooram' is unfortunate. The kind of mismanagement that has come to light in Sabarimala, devotees are facing a lot of inconvenience. This is the proof of disability of the state govt here," PM Modi said.

He accused the Congress and Left parties of delaying the Women's Reservation Bill. He, however, said the BJP had ensured the passage of the quota legislation that would empower women.

“The Congress and other parties delayed the reservation bill in the Lok Sabha. However, the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam has now become law. Modi has fulfilled his commitment," PM Modi said on Wednesday. He added that he had guaranteed freedom from triple talaq for Muslim women and fulfilled it with “honesty".
