Continuing his attack on

the ruling Left and the Opposition Congress-led UDF, Prime Minster on Friday described the two fronts as twins of misgovernance, corruption and political violence, among others.

"and LDF are twins.They are twins of misgovernance, corruption, political violence, communalism, casteism, cronyism, nepotism and more," Modi said addressing his second election rally in Kerala on Friday.

Citing the alliance between the Congress and Left parties in West Bengal, he said:"The political picture in West Bengal is clear to everyone.Election after election, Congress and Left are getting closer.The logical step after such closeness is a full merger of Congress and the Left. They can call the new party CCP-Comrade Congress Party."

"Because they are twins, lacks the ability and willingness to defeat LDF.No wonder there is a surge in support in favour of NDA," Modi said.

Earier in the day, the prime minister had addressed a rally at Konni in Pathnamthitta district, where he lashed out at the two fronts.
