'Mayor bro' wins from Vattiyoorkavu by 14251 votes
Vattiyoorkavu: LDF candidate in Vattiyoorkavu V K Prasanth has won by more than 14251 votes. Prasanth was leading right from the initial stage itself over UDF candidate K Mohan Kumar and NDA candidate S Suresh.
V K Prasanth called it an expected victory and said his party has always stood with the people. The party cadres in the constituency have already begun celebrations expecting their beloved mayor to win comfortably from here.
Talking to mathrubhumi.com, VK Prasanth stated that development and politics were the only topics that LDF tried to discuss in the constituency, unlike the UDF who brought cast and religious equations into the by- election. He also claimed that this victory is proof that the people of Vattiyoorkavu accepted the politics upheld by the LDF.
An LDF victory in Vattiyoorkavu could turn to be a major boost for Left cadres in the constituency and a heavy blow to the UDF faction as it was UDF's sitting seat. LDF had successfully projected their candidate VK Prasanth as a representative of the youth in the state. His work as the Mayor of Thiruvananthapuram corporation, particularly during the deluge this year, won him praise from various corners of Thiruvananthapuram and Kerala.
