THIRUVANANTHAPURAM : The BJP will repeat its success of the Telangana assembly election in Kerala by 2026, party national president and union minister J P Nadda said on Tuesday.

“In the 2026 assembly elections, lotus will bloom in Kerala,” he said, after inaugurating the valedictory session of the one-day extended state executive.

“In Telangana our strength doubled in the assembly elections. We won the Thrissur Lok Sabha constituency by 75,000 votes. This is BJP’s first victory in the LS elections (in Kerala) after independence. Though we lost in Attingal and Thiruvananthapuram with fewer votes, it is not a defeat but a victory in defeat. In Thiruvananthapuram, the BJP got 31% votes. It is an incredible achievement. In Attingal, if we can perform well, the BJP will win in the next election. The party achieved this bypassing the threats to their lives,” he said.

Nadda also took a jibe at the state Congress and ridiculed the leaders for celebrating a non-existent victory.
