      I think we need not worry about Anup Jacob' victory, because it is a
      do or die situation for the UDF government. That does not mean that
      we should be passive in this by-election. In fact if one goes back
      to the last two elections in Pirvam, then the question will be raised
      why an LDF candidate won in 2006 and why TM Jacob was managed to get
      only 157 margin in 2011. The reason is that in 2006, entire Jacobite
      in the Ernakulam dist was against the then UDF Govt under Oomman
      Chandy, because of Thrikkunnathu Seminary incident of 2005, and also
      at the last moment Jacab's DIC (Karunakaran"s Party) allied with UDF,
      so there was lot of confusion about Jacob"s candidature. so he lost
      the election.

      While in 2011, though there was a pro-UDF wave in Ernakulam dist, TM
      Jacob couldn't garner that support for him,the reason is that, on the
      one hand LDF candidate Mr. M J Jacob was popular in the entire area as
      he so sincere and no curruption allegation against him, on the other
      , i think more important for the thin margin for Jacob was that, it
      was KPPCCs and Omman Chandy's secret agenda was to get small parties
      marginalised from the electoral politics form kerala. Look at the
      other small party"s share in the current UDF set up , Socialist
      Janatha , only two, no CMP, no JSS (Gauriamma), and they wanted no TM
      Jacob also, so the congress workers in Piravan didnt work for TM
      Jacob in 2011, that is why he got only 157 vote margin.

      But this time it is the same Omman Chandy and Ramesh Chennithala have
      to work hard for Anoop Jacvob's victory. "By the way there i sa
      conflicting report that some say MJ jacob is an Orthodox while some
      media quoted that he is a Jacobite, can anyone from that area say the
      correct picture.
