Kochi: Congress leader Dominic Presentation reacted on the controversy over using church platform in LDF candidate selection in the Thrikkakara by-election.
He said that there is no need to link Dr Jo Joseph’s candidature to church and that the church does not nominate candidates that way.
He said that the candidate was changed due to problems inside the party and not because of the interference by the church. “In all my years, the church has not interfered in any candidacy. CPM district committee nominated Arun Kumar’s name which was not accepted at the higher level,” Dominic reacted to Mathrubhumi News.
“CPM stands no chance in Thrikkakara. They have been carrying out several experiments here for the past several years. They will lose no matter what tricks they have up their sleeves,” he added.
