Election Results 2019: 'Not Getting Excited But Am Holding On To Lead', Says Shashi Tharoor

General elections 2019 results: Shashi Tharoor is fighting from Kerala's Thiruvananthapuram


Congress leader Shashi Tharoor is leading in Kerala's Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha seat as early leads come in. "Not getting excited about just 4 per cent of the votes counted, but it's welcome news that I took the lead from the start and am holding on to it," Mr Tharoor tweeted this morning.

He contested for a third term from Thiruvananthapuram. Mr Tharoor's main rivals in this seat are BJP's Kummanam Rajasekharan the Left Democratic Front's (LDF) C Divakaran.

Kerala has 20 Lok Sabha seats.

As the leads continued to grow, he tweeted again:

In 2014, the Congress's vote share dipped by around 10 per cent, while the BJP's vote share increased by 21 per cent when compared to 2009 in Thiruvananthapuram parliamentary constituency; Left votes had dipped slightly by around 3 per cent.
