The results are out for 2009 parliament elections. I was shocked to know Kongunadu Munnettra peravai lost in all 12 constituencies. Even in kongu strongholds like Tirupur, Pollachi and Coimbatore they got only 3rd place. The reason is not enough gounder votes to peravai, i think. But it is not that bad. Only after 3 months of starting the party the got more than 1 lakh votes. In pollachi Best Ramasamy got more than 1 lakh votes, in coimbatore Er.Easwaran also got more than 1 lakh. But not enough to win, even to get second place.
I hope in the next MLA election they can win seats in rural areas like Palladam, pollachi, pongalur etc.,
But the peravai members worked sincerely and enthusiastically to win. I appreciate that spirit and i wish the Kongu Peravai victories in the future.
