How significant is Pala to the Kerala Congress and the UDF camp? Read our ground report.

In the run-up to the bypoll in Pala, I had taken the bus from Kochi to visit the constituency and examine the mood on the ground. In the course of reporting, I had spoken to different factions of the Kerala Congress, as well as to LDF and NDA leaders. While all three camps expressed optimism of a victory, there were clear indications that all was not well within the UDF camp. I had also written in detail about the legacy of KM Mani, the founder-chief of KC(M) and the influence he had over the voters of Pala. To the extent that the UDF candidate had even officially started his campaign from the graveyard where Mani was buried. Every day during the course of the campaign, KC(M) leaders lit candles and offered flowers at Mani's grave. For a party that has won every election in Pala since 1965, losing the constituency is a big deal. Read More

Pala bypoll results: Rift within the Kerala Congress (M) seems to have reflected in results

The raging feud within the Kerala Congress (M) between the Jose K Mani and PJ Joseph led factions seems to have reflected deeply in the trends so far in Pala. In all the 8 panchayats counted so far, the KC(M) candidate has trailed behind the LDF candidate. This is unprecedented, considering that these panchayats were all strongholds of the party. During campaigning, there were clear indications that there were differences within the UDF camp and that there was virtually little cohesion between workers of the two factions. That seems to have shown in these trends.

Pala bypoll results: Huge dent in BJP vote-share, where did saffron votes go?

In the 2016 Assembly election, BJP candidate N Hari had registered a whopping 24000 votes, a four-fold gain from its votes in the 2011 election. This was indicative of the BJP's inroads into the Hindu community. But in this bypoll in Pala, it is clear that the BJP will not be able to match its 2016 vote-share. As of trends right now, the BJP candidate has got 8258 votes with just 5 panchayats left for counting. So have the BJP's votes transferred to the LDF? Has the rift between the BDJS and BJP reflected in this dent in vote-share? The gains from Sabarimala has also not reflected in these results.

In Pala, 7/12 panchayats counted so far, LDF leading in all 7 panchayats

Ramapuram: LDF

Kadanad: LDF

Melukavu: LDF

Bharananganam: LDF

Moonilavu: LDF

Thalanad: LDF

Thalappalam: LDF

These are the trends across the 7 panchayats counted so far.

BJP retains lead in Tripura by-polls

BJP has retained a steady lead ahead of CPI (M) after 5th round of counting for Tripura’s Badharghat assembly constituency. After completion of 5th round of counting, BJP candidate Mimi Majumder has secured 16,848 votes, 4,803 votes ahead of CPI (M) contestant Bulti Biswas, who has secured 12,045 votes. Congress candidate Ratan Chandra Das has secured 7,050 votes, 329 votes went to SUCI (C) candidate Mridul Kanti Sarkar and 539 votes went to NOTA. While Congress came second in Lok Sabha elections held this year, much ahead of the communist party, the latter has definitely made a comeback in the seat, more so since Badharghat constituency was never won by the communists in last 5 assembly elections.

Pala bypoll results 2019: Counting in five panchayats on, LDF leading in all

The LDF candidate has been in front right from the time the counting process started. Surprisingly, Mani C Kappan of the LDF has led in all the five panchayats counted so far: Ramapuram, Kadanad, Melukavu, Moonilavu, Thalanad. All of these panchayats had voted overwhelmingly for the UDF candidate in the 2019 LS polls. This is a huge setback for the UDF if it continues to trail. Pala is not just any ordinary seat for the coalition. For the Kerala Congress, the seat holds prime significance as its founder-chief late KM Mani had got elected from Pala for a record 13 times right from 1965. If it goes on to lose Pala, the Kerala Congress will be prone to heavy factional feuds from within.

BJP's performance is significant in Pala

Election observers and analysts may not count on the BJP to wrest Pala, but they are unequivocal that the performance of the saffron party will affect the prospects of the LDF and UDF camps. Pala is a Catholic-dominant seat, but last time, in 2016, the BJP registered a four-fold increase in its vote-share, digging deep into the constituency's Hindu vote base. The role played by the BDJS in shoring up Ezhava votes for the BJP was also pointed out last time. As well as it is important for the BJP to retain this vote-share, or even increase it, the LDF and UDF would be hoping to make inroads into the BJP pockets. After polling ended, there were also allegations from the LDF candidate that BJP had traded its votes for the UDF.
