Lapses in candidate selection led to LDF’s failure in Aroor: Vellappally Natesan
Alappuzha: Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam (SNDP) general secretary Vellappally Natesan said that lapses in candidate selection led to LDF’s failure in Aroor.
Speaking to Mathrubhumi News, Vellappally Natesan claimed that nobody knows Manu C. Pulikkan in the constituency and that LDF should be grateful to NSS General Secretary G. Sukumaran Nair for their victories in Vattiyoorkavu and Konni.
“LDF’s failure in Aroor is the result of candidate selection without considering his popularity and chances of victory in the constituency. Manu C. Pulikkan was a mistake from the part of LDF. The left front failed to field a winning candidate in the constituency.” Vellappally Natesan said.
He added that Shanimol Usman was helped by a sympathy-wave in Aroor.
The SNDP chief also took a dig at his NSS counterpart and said that the LDF should credit Sukumaran Nair for their victories in Konni and Vattiyoorkavu. Vellappally Natesan said that LDF should go to Changanassery, garland Sukumaran Nair and ask him to make more such statements which would help the LDF.
The SNDP leader insisted that political parties should stick to their identities and should not go after any particular community.
