'There is neither a 'Modi wave' nor any wave in favour of the BJP in Kerala and UDF will win more than 16 of the 20, seats in the Lok Sabha election held on April 10, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy asserted today.

Reacting to BJP leader Murali Manohar Joshi's statement to the effect that there is no Modi wave but a BJP wave was being witnessed, Mr Chandy said, ''In Kerala there is wave of neither but Congress wave is sweeping because of its secular plank and able to provide a stable government at the Centre.''

Replying to a question whether BJP will open its account in Kerala in this election, Mr Chandy said, ''ot in near future'. Last time UDF won 16 seats out of 20 and this time the tally will further increase. I am confident of it.'

Mr Chandy, who arrived here today on a two-day campaigning visit in favour of Congress candidates in Karnataka, said Congress was confident of forming the government at the Centre as it has proved on providing a stable government since last one decade. Another important is secularism.

UPA has also proved that it will protect the interest of all section of the society unlike BJP indulging in divide and rule policy on caste basis. Linguistic minorities are looking at Congress to provide a secular government, he added.
