Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan met state Governor Arif Mohammed Khan at Raj Bhavan on May 03 after historic victory in Assembly election. He has submitted his resignation to the governor Khan. Vijayan is set to be sworn in as chief minister of Kerala for second consecutive term. Communist Party of India (M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) retained power in Kerala by winning 99 seats against 41 seats of Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) in the Assembly polls.
Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan is attempting to break electoral tradition in the state and buck anti-incumbency in the assembly election. The opposition has targeted the Chief Minister and his government over issues like the gold smuggling case and the government’s handling of the Sabarimala issue. However, infighting within the chief opposition block and Vijayan’s reputation as a good administrator is likely to hold him in good stead. So can Vijayan retain the last Left bastion in the country? Or will UDF make a comeback in the state? Is the BJP a factor in the Kerala polls? Expert Pollster Yashwant Deshmukh answers all these questions in the latest episode of our election special show Poll Baazi.
