Palakkad and BJP:-
Palakkad District

The campaign by Narendra Modi in Palakkad on 6th May shows the desperation of Bharatiya Janata Party to open an account in Kerala in this general assembly election to send BJP legislators in the assembly. Here in Palakkad BJP is reigning a municipality on its own. But the contest  seems to be hard here as the rivals have nominated heavyweights . MLA and UDF  Shafi Parambil, LDF three-time former MP N.N. Krishnadas have a grassroots level connections to the people of Palakkad. Though, NDA candidate Sobha Surendran  does not lag behind in this term.

Thrissur Assembly 50-50 for All:-
Padmaja Venugopal (Congress), V S Sunilkumar (CPI) and B Gopalakrishnan (BJP) are three contestants who will engage in a tough triangular fight from Thrissur assembly.

The continuous rising of votes from 8000 in assembly election to 14000 in the Loksabha, and 14000 to 25000 in the last local body election has raised hope for the BJP contestant B Gopalakrishnan.

Thrissur/Malappuram: CPI leader Panniyan Raveendran on Monday said the LDF was sure about winning 86 seats. SNDP Yogam leader Vellappally Nateshan has aligned with the BJP. Ezhava community has seen their progress due to the reservation system.So, SNDPY that represents Ezhava community, must not tie up with BJP that is against reservation.
He criticized him for his comment against ES Bijimol.The seat, on which once Kumaranasan sat, is now occupied by Nateshan. This is not decent. Nateshan is saying all just because BJP is offering his copter to roam about.

National executive committee member Benoy Viswam from CPI said that BJP cannot open an account in Kerala due to LDF.He hoped that minorities will support LDF as it has the ability to defend the influence of Sangh Parivar organizations.

Muhammad Yusuf Tarigami

CPM national committee member Muhammad Yusuf Tarigami said BJP is approaching a destination where they have no place to sport with communal divisions. He is spending his more times in the Muslim-dominated areas such as Kattangal, Chaliyam, and Puthiyakadavu to 'expose the designs of the BJP' . BJP is campaigning against 'ghar wapsi' and 'love jihad' instead of the draught, unemployment, and farmers' suicides. They were against the idea of a nation based on religion or language. So, they did not hear the call of Muhammad Ali Jinnah. They remain in India.
