With the surprise grand AAP victory in Delhi ,The questions are again asked about the states it should expand next.Punjab is the obvious answer most are talking about and with right reasons. But Kerala is another one suggested by some analyst.
So the big question is, Can AAP extend its impact to Kerala for the next Assembly election which is another 18 months away.

If you analyse, the vote share during last election doesn’t give much promise.
But, Kerala’s current political ,social and economic scenario provides an ideal ground for AAP to make a big positive impact.
Everybody badly need a new alternative in kerala. But can AAP fill that gap?
AAP correctly fit to an average young Malayali’s political idealism and activism.
But What it lacks is a towering local leader like Arvind Kejirwal.
Even with so many eminent people joining it and even contesting election, they doesn’t have a towering influence across all sections of the society.
The one ideal choice I could come up going through so many faces is Raju Narayana Swamy( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
He is an IITian IAS officer with impeccable record. If he leads that will be a revolution in kerala.
Raju Narayana Swamy,Can you rise and take the risk to give the much needed hope for a malayali generation caught between cocaine and maoist?
