Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s statement that the Bharatiya Janata Party, which had won one seat in Kerala in the 2016 Assembly polls, would see its account getting closed this time, has come true with the Centre’s ruling party failing to secure any victory despite fighting hard in three constituencies. The ruling CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front is all set to retain power in the state.
In an address post victory, state CM Vijayan said to the party workers, “This is not the time to celebrate our huge win. Many wanted to celebrate but they have held back. Our fight against COVID will continue.”
