Are you aware that five years later, when the next election comes, the present chief minister would be 93-year old said Rahul Gandhi, making an unambiguous dart at 87-year old Kerala chief minister VS Achuthanandan. On the other hand, look at the UDF candidate list, its a fairly even mix of young and the experienced, he said.
On the other hand, Singhs 33-minute speech at Nehru Stadium in Kottayam was the longest speech he ever made on Keralas soil. Good roads would have had multiplier effects in Keralas economy, especially in hospitality industry, added the prime minister. He also said NREGS funds, too, were not effectively tapped. According to Singh, the Left was guilty of giving the garb of ideology to opportunist politics.
