Pathanamthitta: Keralites frequently take to social media trolling because they are jobless and have nothing better to do, union minister Alphons Kannanthanam said on Sunday.

He also said that Keralites were narrow-minded and think only of themselves and their families, whereas prime minister Narendra Modi's vision is of sharing and caring for all.

Kannanthanam was targeted by trolls after he remarked that the increase in fuel price would help the poor as the government can spend the extra income from it for welfare activities.

Referring to demonetization and GST, he said that when evils like black money was being dealt with minor disruption in economy was only natural and that such minor hurdles would come in the way of any revolutionary change.

On petrol price hike, he said that doubts of it affecting the poor was baseless as inflation in India was only 3.3 percent.

Speaking during the BJP's Janaraksha Yatra at Pathanamthitta, Kannanthanam said that India was the safest country for minorities and that it provided equal protection to Christians and Muslims.

He alleged that Kerala has the worst governance the country has ever witnessed. "It was alleged that if Modi comes to power there will be attacks on mosques, it has been three and a half years, not a single mosque has been attacked," the minister said.

People have already started condemning the politics of violence spread by CPM in the state.
