Kerala CM's migratory bird remark a shot at Modi?

The Kerala Chief Minister's statement was hardly a few hours ahead of Modi's second visit to Kerala on Sunday.

Close on the heels of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's second visit to Kerala in hardly two weeks time on Sunday, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan made an indirect statement that a migratory bird was frequently visiting Kerala these days. 

The statement is considered as a veiled attack by Pinarayi against Modi. Social media trollers are also taking it up.

"Many migratory birds used to visit Kerala. For one migratory bird, Kerala has become a favourite place as it is visiting here frequently. But we need to be cautious that frequent visit of migratory birds from deserts are not good for Kerala", Pinarayi said without naming any bird.

The Kerala Chief Minister's statement was hardly a few hours ahead of Modi's second visit to Kerala on Sunday. Pinarayi was inaugurating a bio-diversity congress at Kannur in North Kerala.

He further said that: "migratory bird Rosy Pastor that used to be seen in North India is now being spotted in some parts of Kerala; this could be giving some warnings to us."

Trolls started appearing on the social media linking Pinarayi's statement to Modi.

It may be recalled that Modi made strong criticism against the Left government in Kerala, especially over the Sabarimala women entry issue during his visit to Kerala on January 15. On his second visit to Kerala on Sunday also Modi reiterated his criticism.

Meanwhile, the Kerala Chief Minister could not reach in time to Kochi to formally receive the PM on Sunday. The Naval aircraft in which he was supposed to come to Kochi from Kannur, where he made the 'migratory bird' remark, developed a technical snag. This has also now become a topic for social media trollers.
