Left in Kerala has reasons to cheer. In two pre-poll surveys, conducted by two prominent channels- Asianet News and 24 News- it has been predicted that the Left Democratic Front-led by the CPI (M) will return to power. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan also had the highest approval rating, the surveys revealed. Kerala is scheduled to go to polls in April. Asianet survey predicted that the ruling LDF will get between 72 to 78 seats, a little over the halfway mark in the Kerala Assembly. The opposition UDF would bag 59 to 65 seats, stated the survey. The BJP led National Democratic Alliance is predicted to increase its tally in the Kerala Assembly, with the Asianet survey giving it 3 to 7 seats. The Asianet survey is a random survey done in 50 out of the 140 constituencies in the state.
