Kannur: Former Congress leader Mambaram Divakaran on Sunday said that KPCC president K Sudhakaran is trying to sabotage the board election of Thalassery Indira Gandhi Co-operative Hospital.
“K Sudhakaran is trying to sabotage the elections by vote-rigging and fake identity cards. The aim of Sudhakaran and his group is to stop the voters. However, we won’t allow this to happen,” he said.
Divakaran stated that he had political differences with Sudhakaran on many matters and this is why the KPCC president is trying to oust him from his role on the board of the hospital. “I have been at the helm of the Indira Gandhi Co-operative Hospital for the last 30 years. However, I have faced harassment from him since 2011 election due to our differences,” he added.
Meanwhile, Divakaran also dismissed the allegations that he had the support of CPM ahead of the elections.
Divakaran was recently expelled from Congress for allegedly violating party discipline. It is alleged that he had formed an alternative panel against the Congress panel ahead of the Co-operative Hospital Board election.
The UDF is looking to regain control of the board by ousting the incumbent President Mambaram Divakaran through the election. The elections will be held at Mambaram Indira Gandhi Public School on Sunday from 9 am to 4 pm.
