Congratulations, the voters of Kerala! The UDF has swept the polls, and it won in Kannur very convincingly.
The people have spoken emphatically once again.
The voters have registered their protest loud and clear – against the infighting in the ruling party leading to absence of governance, against rampant corruption and most of all against political parties’ commitment to the party rather than to the people who elect them.
It is a protest of the people against the goonda raj that had Kerala in its grip the past few years.
It is the people’s loud voice of disapproval against the youth wing of the ruling party which had grown into a Frankenstein causing disturbance and spread fear by taking law into its hands.
It’s a protest against the Home Ministry running the state as if it is the minister’s back yard.
People have had enough.
We earnestly hope that the UDF understands the gravity of the burden of expectation that has been placed on them.
