Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that Kerala was as much his as Varanasi at Guruvayur after his thanksgiving visit to his constituency of Varanasi.
Addressing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers in Guruvayur, Modi said that those who made them win is theirs and those who did not make them win are also theirs. “You may ask BJP drew blank in Kerala then why Modi selected Kerala for his first political speech. Kerala is as much mine as Varanasi,” said Modi.
Modi after visiting Sri Krishna temple in Guruvayur said that although elections have their own place, the government’s responsibility is towards the country’s entire population. He also thanked voters for the festive spirit of democracy. He said, “I salute the people. People are my Gods.”
Modi further described BJP workers as ‘jan sevak’ who are committed to serving the people lifelong saying that jan sevaks are forever, not for mere five years.
Talking about Nipah Virus, Modi said that there is nothing to worry or panic about the disease which resurfaced for the second time in Kerala. Modi said that the government is with the people. The state and central government will work together to fight for it and the centre is closely monitoring the situation.
