Cherthala: JSS leader K R Gouri Amma has accused the CPM of deceiving her party. "Cheating is cheating, and it doesn't matter whether the party is big or small," she said, adding that the JSS had not deceived anyone.

The party will write to CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan to lodge its protest.

Meanwhile, Gouri Amma welcomed the invite of the BJP. She said that she opposed the communal activities of the BJP. The JSS centre has exhorted party workers to vote for suitable candidates. A final decision will be taken at the state committee meeting scheduled for April 9.

Though she is not contesting election, Gouri Amma had asked for four seats for her party. But she was snubbed by the CPM.
