THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Kerala is ripe to see the emergence of a BJP-led third force with unexpected stakeholders including the LDF and UDF constituents coming together irrespective of community and religion, predicted BJP’s new state president Kummanam Rajasekharan.

I am not saying BJP alone will garner 71 seats. A third force led by the BJP will win over Kerala this time,” said Kummanam in his first interview after assuming the office.

He explained the thought further. “From now on there will be a BJP and a non-BJP front just like the pro-Modi and anti-Modi factions in the country. Those currently with the BJP will not cross over to the other side. Implosions within the UDF and the LDF will however ensure a few of their components will be part of the Third Front,” he added.
