For Sahib Singh Verma s son, campaigning runs in the family Pushing buttons Voter IDs found dumped, poll officer tells commission postman is to blame A prestige seat for both the ruling LDF and the BJP on account of the pitched ideological battle it fought on the streets of Kerala on Sabarimala last year, the result in Pathanamthitta on May 23 has far reaching consequences for both coalitions. (Express photo by Vishnu Varma) One of Kerala s most keenly watched electoral contests is taking place in Pathanamthitta, a constituency that shot into national limelight as the nerve centre of the agitation over the entry of women of menstruating age at the Sabarimala hill shrine. Unlike a majority of the poll battles in the state, which are bipolar in nature between the Left and the Congress, the fight in Pathanamthitta is a test of how well the BJP can consolidate the Hindu vote over Sabarimala and its attempts to make inroads into communities which have traditionally been inimical to its brand of politics.A prestige seat for both the ruling LDF and the BJP on account of the pitched ideological battle they fought on the streets of Kerala on Sabarimala last year, the result in Pathanamthitta on May 23 has far reaching consequences for both coalitions. A victory for the Left will vindicate chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan 's strident but progressive position on gender equality and at the same time confirm the Hindu community 's unwavering commitment to the ideals it espouses. On the other hand, if the BJP manages to sneak a victory here, it will be a telling example of the Sangh Parivar 's ability to penetrate deep into its core constituency and win over floating voters. If the right wing experiment succeeds, as it believes it will, Pathanamthitta will pave the way for future religious polarisation, hitherto unseen in Kerala.
