BJP doesn’t have any MP from Kerala. The party is also in no mood of appointing a nominated Rajya Sabha MP as minister. In this vacuum, Modi couldn’t find a better match than Alphons Kannanthanam, the distinguished former IAS officer.



Alphons is also a pioneer of literacy movement in India in general and Kerala in particular. As the District Magistrate of Kattayam in 1989, he initiated an innovative project for literacy which resulted in 100% literacy rate for this district – first in India.
