Pathanamthitta: The CPM Pathanamthitta district secretariat has decided to field K.U. Janeesh Kumar as LDF’s bypoll candidate in Konni.
An official announcement in this regard is expected to be made on Friday.
Although the names of district secretary K.P. Udayabhanu and M.S. Rajendran were also in contention, Janeesh Kumar, who is the state vice president of DYFI, was favoured over the others.
By fielding a youngster like Janeesh, CPM is determined to take back Konni where Congress candidate Adoor Prakash won last time.
