New Delhi: Suresh Gopi, the newly elected BJP MP who made the lotus bloom for the first time in Kerala, reached Delhi to attend the swearing-in ceremony of PM Narendra Modi. Talking to the media, he said, 'I will speak after the swearing-in ceremony.' While answering questions from reporters on reaching Thiruvananthapuram International Airport, Gopi said that Modi has asked him to reach Delhi immediately. This statement of Suresh Gopi has started a round of speculation in political circles. Different meanings are being drawn from this statement. Suresh Gopi is the winner of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from Thrissur in Kerala, who helped the party open its Lok Sabha account in the southern state.

In the Lok Sabha elections, Gopi defeated his nearest rival and Communist Party of India's (CPI) V.S. Sunil Kumar in a thrilling contest. According to data available on the Election Commission website, Gopi got 4,12,338 votes while Kumar got 3,37,652 votes. Senior Congress leader K. Muraleedharan came third with 3,28,124 votes.

Will Suresh Gopi become a minister?

Actor-turned-politician and newly elected MP from Thrissur Lok Sabha constituency Suresh Gopi said he has no information yet about what role he will be given in the new NDA government. “I am following the orders of my national leaders – my Prime Minister and Home Minister,” he said. Gopi also said, “The celebrations must go on.” “It is a people's festival, so there can't be any hindrances or differences,” the Lok Sabha member said. On Thursday, Gopi had said he did not want to become a minister and only wanted the ministry to implement projects proposed by him for the welfare of the people of Kerala. On Sunday, he reiterated what he had said earlier – he would work as an MP for Kerala and neighbouring Tamil Nadu as well.
