UDF candidate Augusthy tonsures head after poll defeat
Idukki: UDF candidate EM Augusthy tonsured his head after getting defeated in the Kerala assembly polls. He contested from Udumbanchola against LDF candidate MM Mani.
During the campaign, Augusthy had challenged that he will tonsure his head if he loses the polls by 20,000 votes.
Keeping his word, he shaved off his head after MM Mani defeated him for over 38,000 votes. On Tuesday, he took to his Facebook page and shared his picture with a tonsured head.
"We should keep our words," he captioned the pic.
Minister MM Mani won the polls against EM Augusthy by a margin of 38,305 votes. In 2016 polls, Mani had won the polls with a majority of 1109 votes.
