Suresh Gopi turns a real hero

Kochi: The BJP on Tuesday shocked the political pundits when its action star Suresh Gopi proved his heroics by establishing an inimitable lead of over 72,000 votes in the cultural capital of Thrissur Lok Sabha seat.

Upsetting the exit polls predictions carried out by a leading Malayalam daily and others, Gopi even disturbed his opponents V S Sunil Kumar of the Left and K Muraleedharan of the Congress by his outstanding performance.

Technocrat turned politician Rajeev Chandrashekhar of BJP too made his rival and former diplomat Shashi lose his senses for sometime when he remained ahead of Tharoor in Thiruvananthapuram.

BJP winning a Lok Sabha seat in Kerala is really an eye opener for the Left and centrist parties who had taken people for a run in the state.

BJP’s emergence as a major power in a place like Thrishur with strong communist and  Congress roots is a turning point to the political future of the state.

It was the Karuvannur cooperative bank scam that did irreparable damage to Left parties whose leaders are indicted in the case being investigated by the ED.

The allegations against Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and daughter and the misdoings of Left parties added oil to the fire.

It remains to be seen how far the Prime Minister honours the promise he had made during election campaigns to redeem the money of Karuvannur scam victims using the assets and funds of the accused in the scam.

With the assembly elections only a couple of years away, the mainline parties have little time to set their houses in order.
