UDF leads in Malappuram; LDF makes gains

MALAPURAM: Though the UDF is leading in the Malappuram district, it faced major setbacks this time, compared with the last time,
The CPM's performance this time is that reminds one of 1995's results.

The League received a big blow in Kondotti municipality where Congress rebels joined hands with the CPM. Here the rebels had officially befriended the CPM to form a populist front. The hint is that they will attain power in the municipality.

In Parappanangady municipality also, there is a neck-to-neck race between the League and CPM-Congress rebel combo. In the ward of education minister Abdu Rabb, Congress dissident Haneefa Kodapally under populist front won by 230 votes.
