In the stagnant bipolar politics of Kerala the saffron party has always been an untouchable. Its attempt to open an account has failed in every election.
This time, the BJP has received some balm from an unexpected quarter. The clerics of the Jacobite Syrian and the Malankara Orthodox churches have lauded Narendra Modi openly. Sniffing some acceptance, the party has since rushed its emissaries to their head quarters. Though both are smaller denominations, these sects are dominated by professionals and business men.
