THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: At the end the wide propaganda that the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) legislation would backfire on the UDF seems to have had little impact. The wide campaign that a major section of the coastal population would vote against the UDF, particularly its two major candidates - K V Thomas in Ernakulam and Shashi Tharoor here - turned out to be wrong.

With a section of the coastal population and the Latin Catholic community coming out against the two candidates and giving hints that they would vote against the UDF this time, it was pointed out that the issue could play a crucial role this time.

“The campaign on CRZ amendments might not have reached the people. It was a major campaign topic for the LDF,” said P Rajeev MP, who headed the LDF’s poll campaign in Ernakulam. A section of church leaders here had come out against Tharoor on the CRZ issue. ENS
