Mayor VK Prasanth likely to be LDF candidate in Vattiyoorkavu
Thiruvananthapuram: When Vattiyoorkavu is gearing up for the assembly by-poll, it is reported that Thiruvananthapuram mayor VK Prasanth is likely to contest as LDF candidate from Vattiyoorkavu seat. CPM district secretary has recommended to field Prasanth in the seat. A final decision regarding this will be taken in the meeting summoned at state secretariat on Tuesday.
His name was proposed in the district secretariat meeting held ahead of the state secretariat meeting. Prasanth’s best performance as a young leader and contributions as Thiruvananthapuram Mayor made him as a strong probable candidate for the by-poll.
His activities as a volunteer during flood times were widely appreciated by the leaders and public. The CPM leadership hopes that Prasanth’s influence among the youth will favour the election.
Thiruvananthapuram district panchayat president VK Madhu is another person who was listed as candidate. But it is reported that he is not interested to contest.
