Union Finance Minister Piyush Goyal, who has joined BJP's campaign in Kerala for the upcoming assembly elections, slammed the ruling LDF and principle opposition UDF by saying that the people of the state are "tired of corruption, failure and misgovernance" by both Congress and communists.
"People of Kerala are tired of corruption, failure and misgovernance of both Congress and Communists.
They want development, progress and jobs.
They want tourism to grow.
