While for the UDF, AK Antony finished his state-wide road show in the capital city with Shashi Tharoor by his side in an open Jeep, LDF candidate Bennett Abraham after rushing through the outskirts of his constituency decided to end his campaign with a visit to the children's home.
Mr Tharoor who has been drawn into controversy after his wife's untimely death said, "I have delivered my promises of improving education infrastructure, new railway services, initiating the Vizhingam port project and much more."
But just a few kilometres away from Mr Tharoor, Bennett Abraham questioned the sitting MP's performance as part of his campaign speech. "Shashi Tharoor promised a High Court Bench in Thiruvanathapuram but we don't have any yet. There are no signs of the National Highway promises by the sitting MP." The LDF fielded Benett Abraham, a private medical college director with more than 20 years of experience with social service, in the hope of breaking the vote bank of Mr Tharoor. Bennett Abraham belongs to the Nadar community in the capital, crucial in the Nadar-Nair majority population.
