The fall was in these constituencies
Preliminary investigation revealed that despite having 22 DCC office bearers and six KPCC office bearers, organizational vigilance could not be maintained in Kayamkulam. It was also found that the hill and the pond were in a similar situation. In Peermede, the CPI candidate won even though the Left had no hope.
The Congress leadership was not ready to work for the victory of Azhikode contested by KM Shahi. It was found that this situation was the reason for the defeat in Chavara. Shibu Baby John had publicly said that the reason for the election defeat was the clash between the Congress. Padmaja Venugopal, a candidate from Thrissur, had alleged that a section of the Congress had given up when it received the Left votes and that some leaders were involved in the move.
Padmaja Venugopal has made a serious allegation

Padmaja alleged that the move was made deliberately. The scam took place after he bought a large sum of money from him for campaigning. He remained in Thrissur for the last five years and when he got the Left votes, a section of the Congress gave up. Padmaja Venugopal, a candidate from Thrissur, had alleged that some Congress leaders were involved in the move.
