Amid election heat, this candidate never fails to do his duty of rubber tapping
Karukachal (Kottayam): After the candidate selection was finalised, N M Jayalal aka Jayan, LDF candidate in Kangazha panchayat ward 4, is active on campaign. But even during election works, he never fails to do his work of rubber tapping.
Jayalal starts door-to-door visit to woo voters by 8.30 am and the schedule ends by 7.30 pm. After dinner, he goes straight to the rubber plantation of his neighbour for tapping works.
Hailing from Kanjirappara, Jayalal has been tapping rubber for 25 years. He used to tap rubber at 4.30 in the morning. However, after being selected as candidate, he switched the time to evening.
Now Jayalal goes for tapping at 9.30 pm and finishes work by 11.30 pm. Then he returns home to sleep. Next round of tapping starts at 6 am and ends by 8.30 am. He continues election campaign after this.
Jayalal is CPM local committee member and DYFI activist. He has been active in politics for about 30 years.
