P C George to contest from Pathanamthitta
Thiruvananthapuram: P C George MLA will contest from Pathanamthitta constituency the upcoming Lok Sabha election.
Stating that Kerala Janapaksham will field candidates in all 20 constituencies in the state, the Poonjar MLA said he would support P J Joseph if he contests from Kottayam.
“I had informed the Congress my willingness to cooperate with them in the LS polls. However, they did not even show the decency to respond,” alleged P C George.
The CPM is likely to field Aranmula MLA Veena George in Pathanamthitta. The UDF would field sitting MP Anto Antony. With the Sabarimala issue being a crucial factor in the constituency, the BJP is also likely to field a strong candidate.
It is in this situation that P C George has come out with his decision to contest the LS polls from Pathanamthitta. The competition will be fierce.
