LDF Vote Share Rises; Outcome Short of Expected Numbers : P. Rajeev

Web Desk(TVM)Updated: Friday Jun 3, 2022

Kochi  Although LDF’s vote share in Thrikkakara is higher than the last time, the gain is short of expected score in the constituency, said Minister P. Rajeev, speaking with reporters in Kochi.

 We acknowledge UDF victory. Our vote share has risen, but votes not in our favour seem to have been coordinated.  We had viewed Thrikkakara as tough turf well  ahead. Still,  we  hoped for change to come about.

There was a lag of  31,777 during Lok Sabha elections. There are sections with that kind of difference in the constituency.  Still we hoped to work and make improvisations.  We managed to up  our share by  3000 votes. There is a 3 percent dip in votes garnered by BJP.  Other votes appears to have been coordinated. Other aspects need close scrutiny and assessment. That kind of evaluation shall be done, the minister said.
