Shri Shah criticized the Left government, saying, “The Communists did not have an answer to the allegations leveled against their leaders in the gold smuggling case. The former PS of the Chief Minister has been arrested in the LIFE mission case. I urge the Chief Minister to respond to the allegations. Otherwise, the people of Kerala will make you speak in 2024, he said to the huge gathering”.
Give BJP a chance
Shri Shah said Kerala has a public debt of Rs 3.40 lakh crore. “The state finance minister says Kerala is facing a grave financial crisis. I urge the people to give BJP a chance.
