On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused Rahul Gandhi of contesting from a second seat, Kerala's Wayanad as he knew he would be punished by voters for raising "Hindu terror". Interestingly, his NDA coalition's candidate to take on the Congress president has a different view. Thushar Vellapally, 50, has an interesting take on PM Modi's comment. "Kerala has a very different mentality. Communal votes won't work in Kerala, everyone lives in harmony. I will get votes from all Hindus, Christians, Muslims. BDJS (Bharat Dharma Jana Sena) works for backward groups and Wayanad is one of the most backward districts of Kerala", he told NDTV, just before he began a road show from a temple in Wayanad's Kalpetta.
