While many Keralities are extremely confused by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to ‘Kerala because the BJP failed miserably in the state during the elections, we just hope he doesn’t get too overwhelmed by the strong Malayali crowd.
Narendra Modi is known to be an avid traveller so it doesn’t surprise us that he has come all the way from the North to down South to pay his respects to the Hindu god Guruvayurappan and to take part in the ‘thulabharam’ ritual. Apparently, “it’s a source of inspiration” for Modiji. That said, he’s so enthused by people’s profuse response that he shared, “Kerala is as dear to me as Varanasi. An elected leader is common to all… it is my responsibility to take care of the 130 crore people of this country. Those who made us win or those who did not, both are our (people).”
Take a look at the pictures of his ‘mini-vacation’ in the Thrissur district of Guruvayur.
For those bewildered by his visit, PM Narendra Modi has a befitting reply – “Many would wonder why I chose this southern state despite the state not giving a single BJP MP from here… Yes, our party did not win a seat here but I will serve the state with great vigour and deepen the bond with its wonderful citizens.” He is the Prime Minister of India, after all.
