Kochi : Has there ever occurred a time when Chief Minister and all leaders, including ministers, haven’t worked unitedly for an election while in power, asked Minister P. Rajeev. Thrikkakara has never been a favourable turf. It has remained thus in all elections before, the minister said, replying to media query on byelection results.
Even so how can we make progress despite circumstances? That’s been the goal we worked our maximum for and the result has been a vote share higher than before. Still, the opposition votes came bunched together plus sympathy card too had its role. Also, BJP votes took a curious dip, said Rajeev.
Numbers lend clarity. . The non-political votes of last time tricked to the other side. So, are there lessons to heed, amends to make – that’s something we will closely assess and see, said Rajeev.
