THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Minister Kadakampally Surendran said state politics is only the topic of discussion in the local body elections. He said the poll results would be an evaluation of the government’s activities. People cast their votes based on the present experiences of the government, he said.

‘The results would be a reply to the opponents in unnecessary controversies including gold smuggling. None of the controversies will influence the people. The people know that it is being raised aiming elections. State politics is only the topic of discussion in the polls. The polls would be an evaluation of the government. The UDF and the BJP are Siamese twins. The LDF will surpass the absolute majority in the Thiruvananthapuram Corporation. The BJP will lose seats in the corporation,’ he said.

The first phase of polling will be held on December 8. Open campaigning will end today at 6 pm. Though jamboree (kottikalasham) has been prohibited due to COVID-19, the fronts are campaigning vigorously in the last hour. A strong triangular fight is taking place in many places including Thiruvananthapuram Corporation. All three fronts hope for a victory. All three fronts claim that they will get a major increase in seats this time when compared to last time.
