Kochi: UDF candidate and former minister K Babu has declared that he is ready to face any case in court over winning the assembly elections from Tripunithura seat. He pointed out that he won the elections as Congress retained the votes that BJP won in the last elections from Tripunithura.
The Congress leader has made the statement while responding to Mathrubhumi.com after CPM declared their plan to move High Court complaining Babu misused Sabarimala issue during the polls.
“ I will face the case strongly. I am not ready to respond over the matter based on the news reports. But we failed to gain the victory that expected from Tripunithura. UDF expected more votes from Maradu and western parts of the constituency,” declared Babu.
Tripunithra seat witnessed a neck and neck fight between UDF candidate K Babu and LDF candidate M Swaraj. Babu defeated sitting MLA Swaraj by a lead of 992 votes.
