Congress leader Shashi Tharoor was spotted dancing with supporters on Monday while campaigning for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections. The sitting MP is seeking a third term from the Thiruvananthapuram constituency as Kerala votes on April 26. Tharoor will be facing off against Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar and CPI leader Pannyan Raveendran.

Visuals shared online showed the senior politician moving energetically to the tune of AR Rahman's Jai Ho as locals — including children wearing tri-coloured sashes — watched and cheered. 

The battle for Thiruvananthapuram will be one of the most-watched contests in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls with several leading politicians in the fray. Tharoor had won the seat in the past two elections while CPI candidate Pannyan Raveendran won Thiruvananthapuram in 2005. While the BJP has never won a Lok Sabha seat in Kerala, the party registered a victory in the Thiruvananthapuram district just once, with O Rajagopal winning the Nemam assembly seat in 2016.

"Thiruvananthapuram for the first time after 20-25 years, seeing a vision for its growth and its prosperity. For the last 25 years, the people of Thiruvananthapuram have given a mandate to Pannyan Raveendran, to Shashi Tharoor three times and none of them have either a vision nor did anything during their tenures," Rajeev Chandrasekhar told ANI on Monday.
