Thiruvananthapuram: Former Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar, who unsuccessfully contested the Lok Sabha polls against Congress candidate Shashi Tharoor from Thiruvananthapuram, announced on Monday that he has planned a 100-day agenda for the Kerala capital region.

"To all those who voted for me in these elections, I had said that as soon as PM @narendramodi ji assumes office as PM for the 3rd term, we will start working on the problems & issues of the people of #Thiruvananthapuram.

"I have planned a 100-day agenda for TVM that I will work with PM," he said on 'X'.

His statement came a day after his social media post about ending his public life created a flutter in political circles.

Chandrasekhar had initially posted on X about ending his public life but later clarified that he meant his tenure as a Member of Parliament and Minister of State had concluded.

He promptly deleted his initial post: "Today, curtains down on my 18-year stint in public service, of which three years I had the privilege to serve with PM @narendramodi ji's TeamModi2.0. I certainly didn't intend to end my 18 years of public service as a candidate who lost an election, but that's how it's turned out." Shortly thereafter, Chandrasekhar issued a new post saying the earlier one was by an intern and it "created some confusion among a section of people about my future political work."
