THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Thiruvananthapuram is the constituency where the BJP is hoping to win in the Lok Sabha elections. The party hopes that Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar will stop Shashi Tharoor, who is entering the election arena for the fourth time after hat-trick victories. Former MP Pannyan Raveendran is the LDF candidate in the constituency where two national leaders are battling each other. With this, Thiruvananthapuram has become the biggest attention-drawing constituency in the state.

BJP is expecting that Thiruvananthapuram, which gave them the second position in 2014 and 2019, will root for them this time. The constituency is witnessing the Shashi Tharoor-Rajeev Chandrasekhar battle. Now, in the latest development, the possibility of a debate between the two has become clear in Thiruvananthapuram. Both leaders have openly said that they are ready for a debate on the issues related to the constituency.

"I am open to a debate with Shashi Tharoor on ideas, development and whose track record is better. I have been saying this from the beginning.' Rajeev Chandrasekhar had said while talking to the local media during the election campaign. 'Yes, I welcome a debate. But the people of Thiruvananthapuram are aware of who has been evading a debate till now. Let us debate politics and development. Let us debate price hike, unemployment, corruption, communalism and the BJP's 10 years of propagating politics of hatred.' Tharoor wrote on X sharing the video of Rajeev Chandrasekhar's challenge

Let us also discuss about the development of Thiruvananthapuram and the visible progress we have made in last 15 years,' Tharoor added.
