Dear Ms. Ejaz,
Dr. Tharoor has asked me to forward to you the following note.
Thanks so much! I am truly humbled by the extraordinary level of trust the voters of Thiruvananthapuram have placed in me, and I am conscious that now is when the real work begins...
With gratitude for your good wishes and support, and hoping it will continue to sustain me over the next five years!
