Kerala has achieved two party system much earlier compared to other states of India. But the tragedy of this bipolar arrangement is that both groups support Dynasty led Congress at Delhi. In that way, they are like SP and BSP in UP. While they fight each other at state level, when they reach Delhi they join hands to strengthen Sonia Parivar.
Even though these two political groups called as LDF and UDF fight each other to mislead common man, once the curtain is pulled down they share drinks together. They protect each other for any wrong doing done by other group .It gives both groups freedom to kill, loot and do whatever they like including indulging in sexual adventures. Even notorious scam accused can escape unhurt and continue to be rulers and ministers. Looting money is not a sin at all as politicians are in the business to make money.
This protective system or arrangements between outwardly enemies on either side make politicians of Kerala bold enough to do anything. Killing those you do not like will not get you punishment in a court of law as group in power will help group out of power to escape legal proceedings. If you loot in crores, you only have to give a cut to friends on other side.You will be declared innocent due to “lack of evidence”
Both Pinarai and Chandy group leaders on either side have a common quality of being arrogant while talking to media and helpless people. They are arrogant to the extent of not bothering about severest criticism with all evidence against them. While living and travelling all over Kerala have never come across a single human being who talks good about Pinarai.He seems to have paid or managed all his party committee members at all levels .No one talks against him or even tell that his views or actions are wrong. In that case, they are similar to Congress men who never find anything wrong with Dynasty members. They can only do right! Few people had doubts about Chandy some time back. With three years in power he erased all those doubts in minds of people and now he simply do not bother about allegations against him
In this LS election, Cong led group have got 12 seats and Pinarai led group got 8 seats. Pinarai has a habit of pushing his allies out during every election. This time he managed to push out RSP and only another so called Communist party called CPI is the only party worth mentioning with him now. No one should worry about Communist tag for party of Pinarai or CPI.They have nothing to do with Communism. They do everything other political parties seemingly opposed to Communist parties do with more cruelty and aggression.
Only Cong led group have two parties with reasonably good following. One is Muslim League which has almost blind support of entire Muslim community which has majority in northern Kerala. So their candidates continuously win all elections with high margin without even a whimper of protest from opposite side. Other party with congress is again a communal political outfit of Christians and that too more of Catholics
Even though Hindus form majority of Kerala especially in mid and southern part of Kerala, their continued association with Cong and left parties in spite of getting nothing in return for the support push out BJP from gaining any respectful share of votes or seats. Even with Modi wave,BJP got only 11% votes with no seats.
Only workable strategy for BJP to gain roots in Kerala is by following two steps:
1.Try to increase Hindu vote share possibly by aligning more with religious Hindu outfits like SNDP(lower caste) and NSS(upper caste)Common people among Hindus do not gain anything by rule by LDF or UDF.Only leaders of Hindu outfits gain personally during any group in power
2. Try to wean away Kerala Congress from Cong led front. Kerala Congress leader K M Mani aged above 80 still has two unfulfilled ambitions: One is to become CM of Kerala and other is to make his son a Central Minister. If BJP can offer to fulfill his ambitions, he will be willing to play with BJP.
Gaining more Hindu votes and getting Christian votes through KM Mani can push up BJP in to power in Kerala leaving behind Muslim League isolated and dying Cong to go fast to its grave. No one will cry for death of Cong or CPM in Kerala.
