Thiruvananthapuram: KPCC president V.M Sudheeran Saturday has said the poll results indicate that the UDF has not lost its popular ground.
Talking to reporters, Sudheeran said that the results shows that the UDF base has not been affected that much.
"But, nevertheless, we did not expect this. But overall our base is intact. Yes, in the Thiruvananthapuram corporation (where it has been reduced to third position after the BJP) we have suffered a serious reverse," said Sudheeran.
"Now it's going to be time for introspection and to find out where all we made mistakes. Was it the candidate selection...Anyway all such issues would be discussed threadbare next week when our party leadership meets," Sudheeran told reporters here at the state party headquarters.
State Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala said that this is a warning signal that the people have given us.
"We have been winning every election in the state after the Left won the 2006 assembly polls and hence we will certainly have to do a lot of stock taking. We will look into all aspects which includes governance and other issues," said Chennithala.
