LS by-polls: LDF in for lost vote, UDF to retain upper handtext_fields
Thiruvananthapuram: Upcoming polls, coming just months after Lok Sabha election, to five assembly seats would reflect Kerala’s political mind.
Issues ranging from Sabarimala verdict to recently emerged corruptions during UDF reign would steal the poll debates and campaigns.
If anything, the polls would help know better where would be LDF’s votes lost to UDF, due to Sabarimala issue, and minority votes flowed to UDF for fear of BJP.
Both UDF and LDF camps are waiting to see whether economic slump would deplete BJP’s votes base in the state.
However, the polls would offer a challenge for LDF government, as the Opposition camp has enough issues to raise ranging from police excess to floods to political murders, among others.
Both Chief Minister and Finance minister would have to face Opposition’s attack on lack of transparency in KIIFB. However, LDF could retort with Palarivatam bridge corruption during UDF reign.
