Shashi Tharoor Trails Against BJP’s K Rajasekharan in Thiruvananthapuram As Per Initial Trends

Shashi Tharoor (Sonu Mehta/Hindustan Times)

In a big development being reported from the state of Kerala, the star politician from the Congress Party and incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) Shashi Tharoor seems to be trailing in the Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha constituency against Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Kummanam Rajasekharan as per the initial trends of the vote counting.

This is a significant development for the BJP which has been striving to make inroads into the state whose politics has historically been dominated by Congress party and the Communist Party of India (Marxist).

Also, if Tharoor loses his seat as an incumbent MP, it will be a major blow to the Congress party.
