Lessons for Congress from Kerala. Despite the massive Sabarimala agitation by BJP/RSS Congress swept the state why ?
1. Within hours of the verdict when everyone was in a dilemma @Oommen_Chandy came out against the verdict.
2. Left went against the verdict & RSS resorted to violence.
3. @ShashiTharoor read the popular sentiment & has been vocal in going against the verdict. RSS filing the petition for permitting women & Congress going for review petition was percolated on ground 2/n
4. Unlike most North Indian liberals believe, Sabarimala is not about women empowerment but faith. My sister is ready to wait & she is a liberal.

Why did @ShashiTharoor win for the third consecutive term & that too with bigger margin despite BJP going all out ?3/n
1. Tharoor slogged hard for the past five years, he did not wake up on election eve.
2. His office was functional & anyone could meet him.
3. Joke in TVM is that Tharoor had coffee in each house of his constituency. Most houses has selfie with Tharoor framed in their houses 4/n
4. Tharoor was with the people during the floods or cyclone.
5. Dr Tharoor was there whole day during Attukal festival, he celebrated festivals of all communities.
5. His Malayalam grew by leaps and bounds over the years. Dr Tharoor, a terrific speaker is media’s darling. 5/n
Why couldn’t BJP penetrate Kerala?
1. Cong or Left cadre strength in Kerala much stronger and organised than the RSS in the north.
2. Probably the best candidate selection in a long long time, Ramya Haridas is the best example.
3. @RahulGandhi effect. 7/n
4. As a Malayali, extremely proud that RG is now an MP from Kerala. Amethi’s loss is Wayanad ‘s gain.
5. RG will learn a lot from Congress model in Kerala.

Once again profusely thank @RahulGandhi for representing Kerala 😎
