Kerala: Five Talking Pointsl

  • Did the flurry of scams in recent months, and Rahul Gandhi’s “old man” jibe, affect UDF margins?
  • The Congress hasn’t done well, the allies have a big share in numbers, will they demand their pound of flesh?
  • Will the UDF win spur a leadership battle among the Congressmen and could allies move over to LDF?
  • Will the CPI(M) bid goodbye to V.S. Achuthanandan despite the late-surge under his leadership?
  • Will Prakash Karat claim the good showing of the Left as his victory or will he give credit to Achuthanandan?
