It’s going to be a politically hyperactive Kochi this week, which began with the visit of BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi to the city on Sunday.

The Kerala Raksha March led by CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan will enter the district on Monday. After the reception at Neriyamangalam, the march will enter the district at Kothamangalam at 10 am. Another reception is being organised at Muvattupuzha at 11 am. On Tuesday the Kerala Raksha March will cover Piravom at 4.30 pm and Tripunithura at 6 pm.

On Wednesday, Pinarayi Vijayan will attend a mass public function at Marine Drive at 6 pm. Senior leaders in the state and central committees are expected to take part in the reception.

Earlier in the day the march will touch Kalamassery (10 am), Paravoor (11.30 am), Vypeen (3 pm) and Kochi (4.30 pm) constituencies.

On its final day in Ernakulam district, the Kerala Raksha March will touch Aluva, Kunnathunad, Perumbavoor and Angamaly constituencies. While Narendra Modi began his Lok Sabha poll campaign in the state with two conventions on Sunday, Pinarayi’s Kerala Raksha March has set the stage for CPM.

The Congress will begin its campaign for the Lok Sabha polls in the state with a Convention scheduled for Saturday, to be attended by Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

 The Congress president who will come to Kochi on Friday is expected to go to Lakshadweep the next day. She will address the election convention along with senior leaders in Kochi on Saturday.
