Ahead of Kerala Assembly elections, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh held a press conference in the state on March 28, and slammed Left Democratic Front (LDF) and United Democratic Front (UDF). He claimed that both the parties have lost their credibility among the common masses as there is much difference in their words and deeds. "Kerala believes that it needs a new political alternative, and BJP can provide it. BJP will bring an end to rampant political violence in Kerala," he added. The Kerala polls are scheduled to be held in single phase on April 06.
