Congress’ Uma Thomas posts thumping win in Kerala’s Thrikkakara bypoll; no ‘century’ for LDF

Dashing the ruling LDF front’s hopes to score a ‘century’ in the Kerala assembly, UDF candidate Uma Thomas registered a thumping win in the high-pitched Thrikkakara by-election by a record margin.

After the end of the counting, Congress candidate Uma defeated her nearest rival Dr. Jo Joseph of CPM by a margin of 25,016 votes, the highest in the constituency since its formation in 2011. The margin is also higher than what her late husband P T Thomas received in the 2021 elections at 14,329 votes.

While UDF’s Uma polled a total of 72,770 votes, LDF’s Jo Joseph garnered 47,754 votes. BJP’s AN Radhakrishnan received only 12,957, which is lower than the votes the party received in 2021 elections.

Reflecting a wave-like trend, Uma who started with a lead of 2,163 votes after the end of the first round, extended her lead in every round and it crossed 10,000-mark at the end of counting in the fifth round to touch 11,413, and to 16,253 votes in the sixth round before the lead hitting the 24,300 votes in the last round. In none of the rounds, LDF could not reduce Uma’s lead.

“This is a recognition for all the hard work done by our workers. This is just the beginning of the party. We have to build from here on,” said opposition leader V D Satheesan, who took charge after the Congress drubbing in the 2021 assembly elections.

Uma Thomas Career

From the moment Uma Thomas said yes to the request of Congress leaders to contest in the Thrikkakara byelection, necessitated by the demise of her husband PT Thomas, the party was awaiting the election commission to declare the poll date. Congress witnessed no dissidents, a very unlikely event in the party, on the run to finalise their candidate. Uma was acceptable to all factions in the party.

PT Thomas represented the constituency since 2016. His connection with Thrikkakara is the reason why Congress did not have a second thought on the candidature of Uma, who is a former KSU leader.

Uma was Maharajas college union’s vice-chairperson in 1984. Thomas was the state president of KSU at that time. Thomas was also a former student of Maharajas. Their relationship grew through KSU activities.

Their love sans religion was met with stringent opposition from the families. Though Thomas talked to the family of Uma, they were not ready to listen to the wish of their daughter. When the family started to look for a groom for Uma, the couple tied the knot on July 9, 1987, secretly.

They lived together for decades without letting religion to play any role.
