Thiruvananthapuram: CPM state secretary MV Govindan on Saturday took a dig at KPCC chief K Sudhakaran, a day after the latter wrote to Election Commission demanding a bypoll in the Devikulam constituency.

Sudhakaran had sent the letter asking the commission to do the needful towards the election in Devikulam as Kerala High Court cancelled the assembly poll verdict. It may be noted that the order made the election of CPM MLA A Raja invalid. The court later stayed the order and granted Raja a period of 10 days to approach Supreme Court. KPPC’s move came at this juncture.

Reacting to it, Govindan said Sudhakaran’s move was anti-democratic and an act that dents rule of law. Govindan asked what is Sudhakaran’s stand on having a bypoll in Wayanad, in wake of Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification as MP.

He alleged that KPCC has been becoming a cheerleader for the BJP-led union government known for its 'political witch hunt'.
