| Published on:

Hon’ble Union Home Minister & Minister of Cooperation Shri Amit Shah addressed a public meeting in Alappuzha, Kerala on Wednesday and criticized the Communist Party and Congress for perpetuating violence in Kerala and receiving support from PFI and SDPI. Shri Shah underscored the developmental initiatives undertaken across the nation and emphasized the vision for Kerala’s development. During the event, Former Union Minister Shri Alphons Kannanthanam, Alappuzha Candidate Smt Sobha Surendran, Adv George Kurian, Shri M V Gopakumar and other leaders were present on the stage. 

Shri Shah emphasized that every vote cast for Smt. Sobha Surendran will strengthen Shri Narendra Modi’s candidacy for a third term as Prime Minister. Numerous surveys indicate that the entirety of Kerala is prepared to support and stand by Shri Narendra Modi. Farmers and fishermen in Kerala are eager to advance alongside PM Shri Narendra Modi. Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi is poised to secure votes from every corner of Kerala as the people of Kerala seek to safeguard the state’s culture and heritage.

Hon’ble Union Home Minister & Minister of Cooperation highlighted that Kerala consists of three main political camps: the Communists, the coalition of the Muslim League and Congress, and the NDA. He noted that Communists are diminishing both globally and nationally, while the Congress is experiencing a decline in its influence across the country. Shri Shah confidently asserted that the future belongs solely to the Bharatiya Janata Party. This election transcends merely electing Smt. Sobha Surendran as a Member of Parliament, it’s about ensuring Shri Narendra Modi’s third term as Prime Minister. It’s about propelling India to become the world’s third-largest economy. It’s about empowering 3 crore ‘Lakhpati Didis’. It’s about elevating India to the forefront of agriculture, manufacturing, and technology. It’s about ensuring the success of missions like Chandrayaan, Mangalyaan, and Adityayaan. Most importantly, it’s about liberating Kerala from the scourge of violence.

Shri Shah highlighted the exposure of the so-called INDI alliance, where Congress and the Communists appear together on stage in Delhi but engage in fierce rivalry in Kerala and Bengal. He asserted that their conflict is artificial, as they secretly support each other. Shri Shah pointed out that the Communists and Congress receive support from PFI, and while the SDPI supports Congress, the Communist Party remains silent on the ban of PFI. He emphasized that making Shri Narendra Modi the Prime Minister again would ensure protection against organizations like the PFI. Shri Shah pointed out AICC President Mallikarjun Kharge’s statement questioning Kerala’s relevance to Kashmir, highlighting that every child in Kerala is willing to sacrifice for Kashmir. He criticized the Congress for delaying the resolution of Article 370 for 70 years, whereas Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji swiftly abrogated it, ensuring Kashmir’s integral status within India forever.  Shri Narendra Modi ji has effectively countered terrorism and Naxalism, while tirelessly striving to eradicate poverty. Through Ayushman Bharat, poor individuals receive free health coverage up to ₹5 lakh, benefiting crores across the nation. In Alappuzha alone, 6 lakh 40 thousand people have benefited from this transformative scheme. In Alappuzha alone, PM Shri Narendra Modi ji has introduced urban development schemes worth ₹360 crore, encompassing 201 initiatives. Through PM Kisan Samman Nidhi, 2 lakh 40 thousand farmers in Alappuzha have received cheques of ₹6000 each. Furthermore, 1 lakh 70 thousand poor individuals in a single constituency have gained access to tap water, while thousands of fishermen have benefited from the Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana.

Shri Shah urged the people of Kerala to elect Shri Narendra Modi ji as Prime Minister for the third time, promising that in the upcoming years, the coir industry in Kerala will be bolstered through a special scheme. He emphasized this as “Modi Ki Guarantee.” Shri Shah also accused the Communists and Congress of harboring terrorism in Kerala, alleging that both parties have supported the PFI for the sake of minority vote bank politics. Shri Amit Shah emphasized that in 2021, BJP Karyakarta Shri Ranjit Srinivasan was brutally murdered in front of his family by members of SDPI and PFI. Additionally, RSS teacher Shri Nandu fell victim to terrorist organizations in the same year. Assuring the people of Kerala, Shri Amit Shah stated that as long as the government of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji remains in power, organizations like PFI will be eradicated.

Hon’ble Union Home Minister & Minister of Cooperation highlighted that under the leadership of PM Shri Narendra Modi ji, the MSP on paddy increased from ₹1310 in 2014-15 to ₹2183. He also addressed the Karuvannur Bank scam involving the Cooperative sector, condemning the attack on the morality of cooperatives by the Communist Party. Shri Shah noted that the Enforcement Directorate has initiated a probe into the scam, assuring depositors that the Narendra Modi government will ensure the recovery of every penny. He criticized the silence of the CPI(M) and Congress on the scam and vowed that the BJP would hold every culprit accountable. Furthermore, Shri Shah mentioned the contrasting stance of the CPI(M) on India’s atomic power status, urging them to address the nuclear capabilities of other communist-led nations before commenting on India’s stance. He emphasized India’s journey to becoming an atomic superpower under the leadership of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modi ji, asserting that the BJP would not compromise on the country’s security. 

Shri Shah accused the CPI(M) of being engaged in illegal mining and smuggling of atomic mineral black sand to foreign countries. He alleged the involvement of both Congress and Communist leaders in the black sand mining case. In various scams, the family, relatives, and office of Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan were implicated, yet the Communist party, which advocates transparency in government, remained silent on the issue of corruption. Additionally, Shri Shah asserted that both the Congress and Communist parties receive support from anti-national organizations. The CPI(M) and Congress have been backed by the PFI and SDPI in Kerala respectively. Shri Shah stated that notably, the Welfare Party, which wants to make Bharat an Islamic State, is also supporting Congress. Now, the voters of Alappuzha must remember to make the right choice. Shri Amit Shah highlighted the crucial role played by the fishermen of Kerala in nation-building. Under the leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji, more than 2 lakh 17 thousand biometric cards have been provided to support them and ensure their safety. Shri Shah mentioned that for the development of fisheries and aquaculture infrastructure in Kerala, Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modi ji has allocated 260 crore rupees to the state’s development fund. Under the Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana, Kerala has been allocated ₹444 crore. Shri Amit Shah appealed to voters, emphasizing that only Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji can guarantee the security and development of Kerala and the entire nation. He asserted that only the BJP, under the leadership of Hon’ble Shri Narendra Modi ji, can build a ‘Mahaan Bharat’.
