Unexpected setback at Mannarkkad led to defeat: MB Rajesh
Palakkad: LDF candidate MB Rajesh said that the defeat in Palakkad was due to the unexpected setback at Mannarkkad assembly constituency. UDF candidate VK Sreekandan won with a lead of 11637 votes.
Loss of votes at Mannarkkad had shocked everyone. Such a steep increase didn’t happen in any other regions in the Palakkad constituency. Pattamabi was in second place. Palakkad assembly constituency is supporting UDF. But, the increase in votes wasn’t reflected there much. This will be evaluated in detail.
It was already said that there was conspiracy in the constituency. The abuse story at the Cherpulassery party office was a proof for this. MB Rajesh alleged that owner of a parallel college was behind it.
Rajesh said that the UDF wave in Kerala has reflected in Palakkad too. UDF candidate VK Sreekandan has acquired more votes from Palakkad, Pattamabi and Mannarkkad constituencies. Rajesh was leading at Shoranur, Ottapalam, Kongad and Malampuzha constituencies.
