Senior party leader Jairam Ramesh said that “if Kerala is Somalia, then Gujarat is probably worse than Afghanistan.”
“I don’t know why and what provoked the PM to bring up Somalia and to compare it with Kerala. If Kerala is Somalia, then Gujarat is probably worse than Afghanistan. This is an outrageous comment to me. It is an insult to all Keralites, insult to all Indians because today the quality of life and social indicators of Kerala are better than most countries in the world, including the US,” Ramesh told reporters.
