THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPM Alappuzha district Secretariat has decided not to give seats to prominent ‘VS’ loyalists C K Sadasivan and C S Sujatha. A consensus has been reached to field Rajani instead of C K Sadasivan in Kayamkulam and Ramachandran Nair instead of Sujatha in Chengannur.
Earlier, State secretariat had given instructions to revise the candidates’ list prepared by Alappuzha District Secretariat so as to include the names of prospective winners.
Later, the names of Sadasivan and Sujatha were removed following senior leader G Sudhakaran’s insistence at today’s District Secretariat meeting.
When prominent sitting MLAs like G Sudhakaran and Thomas Issac got chance to contest the election, avoiding Sadasivan and Sujatha had given room for criticism. Even Opposition leader VS Achuthanandan had asked for considering their names.
