Sabarimala fails to help 'lotus' bloom in Kerala

The emotive Sabarimala row in which senior BJP leaders played a key role failed to help the party open its account in the Lok Sabha battle in Kerala. The Congress and its United Democratic Front (UDF) were poised to grab 19 of the 20 seats, leaving only one seat to the ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M). The usual best showing for the BJP came in Thiruvananthapuram where it finished second while ending up in the third spot in all other 19 constituencies. In Thiruvananthapuram, Shashi Tharoor of Congress, aiming for a hat-trick of wins, increased his lead up from 15,000 votes in 2014 to over 86,000 votes. It was a blow to Kummanam Rajasekheran, who quit as the Mizoram Governor to take on Tharoor. At Pathanamthitta, one of the BJP's popular faces, K. Surendran, who was jailed for over two weeks during the Sabarimala agitation, led for a while in the vote count before being relegated to the third position.
