KOLLAM: With the state Assembly election only a few months away, CPI district secretary R Ramachandran has said that the CPI should get its share of seats in the polls.
He said that a consensus had to be reached among the LDF allies on the selection of candidate for the Kunnathur seat. “The LDF is yet to hold talks on seat sharing as some of the leaders are busy with ‘yatras’,” he said.
“The LDF leaders will decide on the seats where the CPI will contest. Discussions regrading seat sharing will start only after the conclusion of the ‘Nava Kerala Yatra’ led by Pinarayi Vijayan and ‘Janakeeya Yatra’ of Kanam Rajendran,” said R Ramachandran told a press meet here on Friday.
On the resignation of Kovoor Kunjumon from MLA post, Ramachandran said the decision was based on the political stance followed by Kunjumon and there was nothing wrong in it.
“The RSP is disintegrating itself. The party followers are having a rethink whether to be a part of the fold which seconds corruption wholeheartedly. The impasse will not be resolved soon.
“Neither N K Premachandran nor Shibu Baby John could play the saviour’s role. More people will leave the party in the coming days,” he added.
