'I will not change my style of functioning': Pinarayi Vijayan remains firm in face of Lok Sabha Poll defeat
After the failure of the CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) in Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has said that he will not change his style of functioning.
Of the 20 Lok Sabha seats in the state, the LDF only managed to bag one seat – 7 less than the 2014 general elections. Following the blow, several people criticized the Chief Minister over his style of functioning. The rival Congress party, who scored big in Kerala, also said that the CM's arrogance and the way in which he handled the Sabarimala issue were the reasons for the failure of the left front.
