  1. When he went to Kerala for his election rally made a terribly humiliating statement that Kerala is like Somalia.

    Somalia is one of the poorest countries of the world with $ 600.00 per/capita income.
    Kerala is ranking no 1 in education and health care among the States of India, also a very standard of living. 40% of the foreign remittance of India is through the people of Kerala. When the BJP champions are visiting Kerala, they flatter about the religious harmony of Kerala.

    Why did Mr. Modi make the comparison of Kerala with Somalia? He was thinking perhaps Sweden and got confused and thought that Somalia is a Scandinavian country. What a great geographical knowledge? It seems like he may have a correspondence PhD degree from the University of Somalia in Economics. Mr. Modi, do you know that the first college ever started was the CMS college at Kottayam by the Church Missionary Society. You will have to declare now that Gujarat which is ranking below the 10 rank among the States of India in education and healthcare as the ” Congo” of India.
