An old Congress hand from Kerala, Ravi was an able Union minister for overseas Indian affairs and minister for parliamentary affairs in the outgoing Cabinet. His hometown of Vayalar has been the vortex of many peasant struggles, and Ravi was founder-president of the Kerala Students Union. A contemporary of A K Antony, the two fought shoulderto-shoulder to build the state’s Youth Congress. In 1971, he was first elected to the Lok Sabha in 1971 from Chirayinkil , which after the new electoral boundaries, falls in the Attingal constituency. He was re-elected in 1977 and in 1982 became state home minister, but stepped down four years later over differences with chief minister K Karunakaran. Ravi has also exchanged words, strong words, with the worthies at the Guruvayur temple about purification rituals. His wife Maria Francis, popularly known as Mercy Ravi, is a columnist and former MLA from Kottayam. As minister for overseas Indian affairs he has presided over Pravasi Bharatiya Diwas and is said to be keen on retaining the ministry that allowed him frequent Gulf trips. He has been criticised for reducing the ministry to non-resident Kerealite affairs and accused of sluggishness in amending the emigration act and giving voting rights to NRIs. He has to his credit labour agreements and social security agreements that will benefit overseas workers.
