Vote Online for The Winner of 'MANORAMA NEWSMAKER 2017'

As usual one of the most preferred news channels of Malayalees, Manorama News is inviting peoples' mandate to choose the 'NEWSMAKER OF 2017'. The first step of the process is completed by the Editorial Board of the news channel. Depending upon the volume of involvement in the NEWS in 2017, they shortlisted 10 persons and left it to the people's court to select the 4 finalists through online and SMS voting.

The 4 candidates who are voted to the final list are:

1. Alphons Kannanthanam: (Honest and efficient IAS Officer. Earned name and fame as the 'Demolition Man' when he worked as the Commissioner of the Delhi Municipal Corporation for taking stringent action against the encroachment mafia risking own life. Later resigned civil service and contested as an LDF candidate (with communist support) to the Kerala Legislative Assembly and won. Then joined BJP. Recently got appointed as Union Minister by PM Modi. Started making controversial statements (and swallowing later) in the haste attempt of entering the good book of Modi-Amit Shah, at the cost of his hard-earned reputation and image. 

2. Kanam Rajendran: (Kerala State secretary of CPI party. Serving as MLA for second term. He became a news maker by strongly opposing many policies of the Pinarayi Vijayan's LDF Government of which his party is the main partner mainly the land related ones in Kerala)

3. Parvathi: (Leading film actress of South India. Recently won the Golden Peacock Best Actress award in the International film festival of India in Goa. Won the appreciation and affection of people for taking the bold and lead role in the formation of 'women in cinema collective' with other like-minded artists to fight against the powerful male domination in AMMA, for the hapless woman actress who was recently attacked cruelly.)

4. Sreeram Venkitaraman: (Doctor turned IAS officer who became a civil servant not by chance but by choice. While serving as the Devikulam Sub-collector in Idukki, he had to face a lot of hardships even from the ruling party ministers and MLAs, for being honest to his profession and for his firm stand against the illegal land encroachment mafia. As a result of this he was transferred from Devikulam.)
