I would vote for the BJP but they have jokers for leaders in Kerala. The left leadership is also pathetic but CPM/CPI always have good candidates whom the people trust. This is why they never lose their voter base. The best legislators in the Parliament and the State Assembly are from the CPM. But the party as a whole is no good.
The BJP needs to field good candidates. Rajettan can only stand in one or maximum 2 constituencies but can only win in one. All the other leaders just simply cannot inspire me.

In Kerala, we need politicians who are above politics. Politics in Kerala has become like religious fanaticism.

There are good politicians in Kerala in all parties. But the number is very less. I can cite some examples from Kollam itlself. PK Gurudasan of CPM, Jayamohan Sir of CPM, CV Padmarajan of Congress, RS Unni of RSP were some good political leaders from Kollam. I have not seen any good BJP leader from Kollam.

But BJP leader O Rajagopal is a role model for all leaders in Kerala!

As a student I appreciate him, for his decision to avoid interview for competitive exams.

But Kerala BJP leaders are inefficient and in RSS control. They knows only how to market their votes and to play groupism.

Exactly. The RSS agenda will not work in Kerala. BJP needs to campaign showcasing their development agenda and field good candidates. This is the only thing that matters. That's the only thing that can win the neutral vote.

In Palakkad BJP has got around 35K votes from Municipality and has strong hold in other 2 Panchayats which makes Palakkad Assembly.I think if Rajagopal or Sobha Surendran contest from Palakkad and if Union Ministers or Central leader comes from Campaigns etc they can Win in Palakkad.

I would love to see Narendra Modi comes for campaign in Kerala especially TVM, Chengannur, Palakkad, Trissur, Calicut, and Kasargod. If time permits he should visit a minimum of 7 to 8 districts!

Modi has plans to visit Sabarimala this year at a non-season time to avoid inconvenience to other devotees.

Very proud to say the fact that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpaee have visited and addressed the audience of my college - Kollam SN College where I had studied for 5 years during my Pre-degree and Graduation time. I still remember that I could hear Atalji's address only from ouside the college due to the huge crowd assembled there.

PM Narendra Modi's name is engraved in only one college campus in Kerala and it is at the R Shankar statue inside SN College Kollam. It is the same college our great poet ONV Sir had studied.

Yes...IIT Palakkad is going to be second educational institution in Kerala where his name is going to be engraved.

You are right. BJP is going to lose votes in Trivandrum if they field imported candidates. Their chances are not that great to win any seats in Trivandrum if they do so. I think they should field Rajagopal, V V rajesh and may be Suresh gopi in winnable seats.

Alongwith them,even Kummanam has a great chance.But V Muralidharan is sure to lose.
Heard that BJP is doing great in Palakkad Municipality.Someone from Palakkad can confirm.If so they have an outside chance over there.
The best chance for BJP elsewhere is to poach some good camdidates from outside.
CPM- Chances for Sreenivasan to contest from Thripunithura and Rajeev from Kalamassery are high.Ideally Thripunithura should be given to Rajeev. Kalamassery has substantial Muslim population and will blindly vote for Ibrahim Kunjhu.Moreover he has also worked well in his constituency.

Who are those best CPM MPs and MLAs? They did nothing for Kerala. They are more concerned about Poland, Iran, Palestine, etc

I am predicting UDF to retain power with 80-85 seats. LDF will win 50-55 seats. BJP will win 3-5 seats. For this, BJP should win good, mature and strong candidates like O Rajagopal, PP Mukundan (on of the best leader BJP ever produced in Kerala after O Rajagopal), PS Sreedharan Pillai, MT Ramesh, VN Unni, Prathapa Chandra Varma, AN Radhakrishnan, etc. If the likes of V Muralidharan, K Surendran contests, even many BJP members votes against them. If Surndran contests, BJP will lose Kasaragod/Manjeshwaram.

BJP has chance to win:
1. Nemom (Kummanam)
2. TVM (Rajagopal)
3. Palakkad
4. Manjshwaram (if Surendran is not candidate and CPM doesn't transfer thir votes to IUML)
5. Kasaragod (if Surendran is not candidate and CPM doesn't transfer thir votes to IUML)

CPM has MLA in Payyannur since 1956. Out of this, LDF was in power for more than 30 years. Why CPM could not bring Taluk there?

CPM always ignored thir forts.

Pattambi was once a CPM fort. EMS did nothing for Pattambi, failed to bring Taluk, Municipality, etc. Fd up of this, people voted for CP Mohammed. Now Pattambi has Taluk, Municipality.

Moreover, after Narendra Modi came to power the perception on BJP is changed. You must know one thing. Narendra Modi was the one leader who always borne the brunt of Gujarath riots, fake encounter episode, and what not! He was attributted the repsonsibiliy for all the riots happend in India! Media wrote against him so that he became a villain in front of the world and the extremist groups. He was even denied Visa by many countries. Keralites are still apprehensive on his abilities and vision when world nations are rolling out red carpet for his visits.

Interestingly, Modi is one PM who has received sarcastic remarks that he is more in foreign land than at the PM's office in India during the last 1.5 years. A prime minsiter like Modi who is very agile and has tremendous energy belives in Digital India and Digital World which allows him to carry his office where ever he go.

It is true that he was in foreign countries more than in India during the last 1.5 years. But, the great thing he could achieve during this time was making his presence and charisma visible in almost all the major countries in the world while maintaining his visibility in India through his subtle as well as sharp deeds and addresses. We know what visibility and presence Manmohan Singh could make in his 10 years of tenure while staying only in India! We heard more of Soniaji than the man who always kept mum.

Here I look at the leader Narendra Modi not BJP. I do not have any issue even if Narendra Modi moves to AAP. It is the leader with the vision than the party for me now! There are many idiotic poiticians in BJP as well similar to Congress and CPM. But how many true world leaders are there in CPM and Congress now? After Nehru and Indira Gandhi, Congress was unable to find a true world leader. Even Rajiv Gandhi could not meet that expectation though he was able to be in office for a short stint!
Reghu,

Jawaharlal Nehru is not a great PM. He is an Average PM. Indira Gandhi, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Rajiv Gandhi, and Narasimha Rao are great PMs. We cannot forget their contribution (Indira made India a Power, splits Pakistan. Lal Bahadur defeated Pakistan; Rajiv - Telecom/IT, Narasimha Rao - Economic Reforms). In fact Congress has a habit of ignoring PMs from Non-Gandhi family. So they never promoted Lal Bahadur Sastri and Narasimha Rao.

Narendra Modi is nothing compare to Vajpayee. I am not BJP supporter. But I respect Vajpayee. I cannot digest the way Modi isolate Advani, Joshi, etc. It is not good for BJP to demoralizing elders, who sacrificed thir entire life for BJP.

UNNI kuttan its not not just a matter of a man / political party . Most of our people believe that if a particular political party or a man comes into power ; everything will change upside down. Just like u i too like policies of Modi ; but people of India in general have some serious problem they always wanted to be ruled by their favorite party even if they give peanuts ... LDF /UDF / BJP (?) whoever comes into power ; people of kerala should demand for development & matured policies unlike heard in some budget allocations like for making new park 100 crore n all .. Until m unless people becomes demanding nothing fruitful ll happpen

If BJP fields Balakrishna Shetty, Narayana Bhatt or PP Mukundan in Manjshwaram and Kasaragod seats, it can hope to win. If Surendran contests, IUML will easily win.

The good candidates in BJP are relatively obscure. Balakrishna Shetty for e.g. is a good example but how many people in North Kerala can relate to him. The public face of the BJP is adorned by people like Surendran, Muralidharan, VV Rajesh. This is not convincing.

MPs like A. Sampath and P. Rajeev are exemplary Parliamentarians. The are attached the people and are held in high esteem. As a party CPM does nothing, but the reason they still win seats are because they field good candidates.

In the end dont judge politics only by what materialistic benefits you get. Can I ask you the same? What good did Kerala Congress do for Kerala? Sure Mani and Joseph did for Palai and Thodupuzha. What about other constituencies with KC MLAs.
