I am happy that the Prime Minister gave me a chance. We tried the best and during my tenure, we were able to take the third position in global tourism."Alphons added that he was happy for fellow Keralaite and Rajya Sabha member from Maharashtra V.Muraleedharan, who has been accomodated in the new government. "He is a real politician and he has got all the contacts. I am sure he will do well too," said Alphons.A former bureaucrat, Alphons quit the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) in 2006 to contest the Assembly polls as an independent candidate and won with the support of the CPI-M.At the end of his five-year term in 2011, he joined the BJP and refused to contest again.
