Kasaragod: In a bizarre analysis, K Surendran claimed that the petrol/diesel price hike will sway voters in favour of BJP in the local body elections. That is the trend witnessed in Bihar and Rajasthan and similar effect will show up in Kerala too, he said at “Meet the Press” event held at Kasaragod Press Club.
In elections here, League has swallowed Congress. Congress is kind of slave to League. League and other communal elements have taken the reins of UDF. Congress has been denied seats it is worthy of in Malappuram and Kasaragod and replaced instead by candidates from Welfare Party. Post the elections, Congress will simply fade away. The Speaker should tender his resignation, said Surendran. Muhammad Haseem presided over the function. GN Pradeep Narayanan delivered the welcome note.
