As part of our coverage of the upcoming Lok Sabha 2019 elections, we asked prominent media personalities in south India to interview leaders from their respective states. In Kerala, we spoke to Gomathi Augustine from Pembilai Orumai, Benny Behanan from the Congress, Veena George of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), Kummanam Rajasekharan of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Shashi Tharoor of the Congress.

In this interview, Varsha Basheer speaks to Veena George, an MLA and former journalist, who is contesting as the Left Democratic Front (LDF) MP candidate from Pathanamthitta. Veena George blames the Congress for neglecting the issues of farmers, especially rubber farmers, and promises to bring agricultural reform if elected. She also elaborates on the ongoing policies which the LDF government put into place under 'Rebuild Kerala', following the devastating floods of 2018.
