Malayalam superstar and sitting Rajya Sabha member Suresh Gopi, who has been named as the Thrissur Lok Sabha candidate by the BJP, says he is humbled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s confidence in him.
“I am extremely delighted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has picked me to go to Thrissur to fight it out. This shows the confidence they have in me. I am certainly elated by this gesture,” said Gopi, who was in 2016 nominated to the upper house by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
“Development is going to double even triple in the next five years,” said Gopi, whose name was announced by the BJP late on Tuesday in New Delhi.
