THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Will Suresh Gopi, the BJP candidate who won from Thrissur constituency, be inducted into the third Modi Government, is doubtful.

The BJP central leadership has offered him a cabinet berth as he is the first elected BJP MP from Kerala. However, Suresh Gopi has requested to avoid him.

He is still in Thiruvananthapuram. It is also heard that he may go to Delhi at 12.30 pm. However, there is no confirmation in this regard. It was heard earlier that he would visit some temples in the morning before taking the oath, but that has not happened. He has not responded on this matter. It is reported that the BJP central leadership is pressuring him to become a minister.


Suresh Gopi has four films including big budgets to complete. This includes half completed films. Reports said that it will take at least two years to complete the films. Suresh Gopi had earlier informed the leadership of the concern that reaching the cabinet would hinder this.
