Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asked the people of Kerala to not just change regimes in the state but think of their own future, reported PTI. Modi was speaking at his second election rally in the southern state which will go for Assembly polls on May 16.

Taking a dig at the ruling United Democratic Front and the Left Democratic Front, the PM said, "Kerala is surrounded by water but still there is no drinking water here. India will next year complete 70 years of her freedom. Both Congress and communists have ruled the state by turn [all these years] but they are not concerned about even providing drinking water," Modi said. According to him, the Congress party and the CPI(M) are covering each other's corrupt ways in the state. "These people have decided to taste power for five years in rotation. This way, they decided not to look at each other's sins and open their files [expose corruption]," he said.
