The Kozhikode District Conference was held at Nalanda Auditorium, Kozhikode on May 6, 2023.
It has been a year since KPA received the approval of the Central Election Commission. The party continues to work towards the decisive involvement of non-residents in changing the political front equations of Kerala.
Any person of Indian citizenship who has attained the age of 18 can become a member of the party, which focuses on change by studying 36 areas related to people’s daily lives and formulating development models. It provides an opportunity for selfless public servants working at ward levels to join the KPA and creates opportunities in the democratic process. The KPA entered the scene by filing a writ before the Supreme Court of India seeking the right of the 18 million expatriates to cast their votes in elections from where they stand, just as other democracies provide facilities for their citizens to cast their votes. It is noteworthy that the KPA has come forward with this demand when no other mainstream political movement has so far demanded expatriate voting rights.
KPA also completed three housing projects in Kozhikode district as part of its “Ayiram Veedu” project. As part of solving unemployment and creating new employment opportunities including for the young generation, new, expatriate jobs are being created and project formulation work is in its final stages. This scheme gives hope to thousands of educated unemployed youth.
The KPA is making a systematic effort to launch its presence in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and become a decisive force in the assembly through the 2026 assembly elections. KPA’s stand against bandhs, hartals and violent protests that make people’s lives miserable has already become the talk of Kerala politics.
