Arya Rajendran of the CPI (M), who won the Kerala civil elections from Thiruvananthapuram, has been elected mayor of Thiruvananthapuram. 21-year-old Arya will become the youngest person in the country with this post. He did not even complete his B.Sc studies. They are in their second year.
Arya is the youngest person in the body election. Srikakulam of the UDF was defeated by a margin of 2872 votes. The CPI (M) says it wants to give more participation to educated women in our leadership. The CPI won 51 seats in the Thiruvananthapuram municipality elections with 100 members. The BJP is the main opposition party here. It has 35 seats on its account. The Congress-led UDF won 10 seats in this election. 4 independents won.
Arya obeys the party order and also completes her studies
Arya said that it was a party decision and I would follow it. People preferred me during the election because I was a student. People want their representative to be educated. I will complete my studies and also fulfill my responsibilities as mayor. Arya’s father is an electrician and her mother is an LIC agent.
Selection from several candidates
In the body elections, the CPI (M) Health Standing Committee nominated former chairman Pushpalatha, teachers union leader AG Olena and Jameela Sreedharan as mayors. Pushpala and Olena did not win this election. Jameela Sreedharan has retired from government service. Apart from this, the name of 23-year-old Gayatri Babu, the first councilor from Vanchiyoor division, is also under discussion. Instead the party elected Arya as mayor.
