About This File
Kerala is a pioneer in many social sectors such as literacy, health, education, standard of living etc. The people are highly aware politically and are conscious about their rights as citizens. The fact that the electorate in the State has switched preference to the UDF or LDF in the General Elections in the past clearly proves that democratic values are deeply rooted in its social fabric. Though communal overtures are visible in some areas, the society is more or less secular in nature. The media penetration is very high with highly circulated Newspapers, Periodicals and a large number of Malayalam TV Channels. All major political parties in Kerala are having their own Newspapers and TV Channels.
