The BJP’s Kerala unit has asked the party leadership to recall Mizoram governor Kummanam Rajasekharan and make him a candidate in the prestigious Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha constituency against two-time sitting Congress lawmaker Shashi Tharoor.pak
“We have informed the party leadership about our decision. Besides the district unit, about 80% of the state leaders want him to contest. He is the ideal candidate to take on the might of Tharoor,” a senior leader said on the condition of anonymity.
The leader quoted above said Rajasekharan is willing to come back if the party leadership gives him the nod.
Though speculation was doing rounds for some time, this is the first time the state unit has approached the party leadership regarding Rajasekharan. The Bharatiya Janata Party’s ideological mentor, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), is also keen on his return.
