It is indicated that the candidate will be announced after the announcement of the election. Kerala Congress leader PC Thomas contested as the NDA candidate in Kottayam in the last Lok Sabha elections. This time PC Thomas is in Kerala Congress Joseph faction. In this situation, it was agreed that the BJP would take the seat. However, the seat was given to Tushar on the recognition that BDJS has a decisive influence in the Kottayam Lok Sabha constituency.
BDJS has significant influence in Etumanoor and Vaikom constituencies of Kottayam Lok Sabha constituency. Earlier, when the BDJS leader contested in Etumanur, it was possible to see a tough competition. If Vaikat, SNDP and NDA stand together, a good contest can be seen.
With PC George joining the BJP, the hope for the NDA in Pala and the hilly areas has been revived. Tushar and his team believe that if the SNDP organization in Kottayam constituency enters the field with full strength, they can secure victory this time.
