Demoralising loss for CPM

T'puram: The shocking defeat at the hands of UDF candidate KS Sabarinadhan at the Aruvikkara by-poll rang alarm bells in the CPM. Though this was the first time that the party put up a candidate under the party symbol, M Vijayakumar could only garner 203 votes more than what Ambalathara Sreedharan Nair got in the last assembly polls. The CPM had not left any stones unturned in its effort to pummel the UDF reeling under several scams into submission. But, the electorate chose to give them a thumbs down. The CPM, battered by years of infighting and factionalism, could only watch helplessly as BJP made deep inroads into their vote banks. The loss will have a huge impact on the party's preparations for the next assembly polls.
