“In Kerala, both LDF and UDF engage in apparent conflict but unite in Delhi. The Congress labels the Left government as fascist, while the Communists criticize Congress for corruption. Yet, they form alliances in the capital. Both parties have deceived Kerala extensively. Kerala's populace has now seen through this deception,” he added.

The prime minister visited the southern state multiple times this year. He has also paid visits to famous temples in Kerala.

Earlier Monday, the Prime Minister visited Karnataka's Shivamogga and Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu. Attacking the Congress-ruled government in the state, PM Modi said, “The Congress leaders are only capable of telling blatant lies. Karnataka Congress has many CM aspirants who keep blaming Modi and the central government for their inefficiency… It is high time for the people of Karnataka to wipe out and clean off Congress from the state in this general election."

The Prime Minister also paid floral tribute to portraits of victims of the 1998 blasts in Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore on Monday. The PM was holding a roadshow in the city at the time. Prime Minister's roadshow commenced near the Saibaba temple in Mettupalayam Road and concluded at RS Puram.
