Tourism Minister KJ Alphons elected as Rajya Sabha MP”

Union Minister of State for Tourism and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader K.J. Alphons Kannathanam was elected unopposed to the Rajya Sabha from Rajasthan in the by-election for a vacant seat here on Thursday.

The seat had been vacant after former MP M Venkaiah Naidu was elected as the Vice President.

"Outsider candidates who have no mass support in their state file nominations from here which is unfair", the legislator said in a statement issued soon after filing of nomination. My scores weren't that good in Class 10 examination, but I topped civil services in 1979. "Many people told me that there weren't many good people in politics, and I told them that is why I will join it".

Alphons was born in a non-electrified Manimala village in Kottayam district to a World War II veteran. "I felt that India needs a good and powerful Prime Minister, and made a decision to support Narendra Modi". Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje is also seen.

Talking to media later, he said that there are vast opportunities in tourism sector in the state and he would like Rajasthan to be number one in the sector.

BJP state president Ashok Parnami, State parliamentary secretary Rajendra Rathore, social justice and empowerment minister Arun Chaturvedi and others were present during the occasion. "Already all the 25-Lok Sabha seats are with the party".
