Palakkad (Kerala): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday took a dig at Rahul Gandhi who is contesting from Kerala's Wayanad, indirectly hinting that he is taking the help of the political wing of a banned organisation to win this election, just to save his face for losing his family seat in Uttar Pradesh in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

"A big leader of Congress has found it difficult to save the respect of his family seat in Uttar Pradesh and has made his new base in Kerala. To win the elections, Congress has entered into a backdoor agreement with the political wing of an organization which has been banned in the country for its anti-national tendencies. Have you ever heard this from them?" PM Modi said speaking at a public meeting in Kerala's Alathur constituency.

Continuing his attack against the Congress, PM Modi said, "Have they said anything about how they looted money in the Cooperative bank scam? Do they even utter a word? The crown prince of Congress will ask for votes from the people of Kerala but will not say even a single word on your issues..."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also hit out at the Pinarayi Vijayan government in Kerala saying that the state suffers from the problem of water scarcity which points out the state government's failure.

"NDA government works on the ideology of Narayan Guru. It prioritises the welfare of the poor and the people. Hence in the last 10 years, the NDA government has given piped water connection to more than 36 lakh households in Kerala under the Jal Jeevan Mission. However, it is unfortunate that the speed at which the Nal Se Jal scheme was implemented in the country, the government in Kerala is not allowing it to be implemented. It is under the influence of corruption. Hence, there is drinking water scarcity even in some houses in Kerala," PM Modi said.
