Kozhikode, 9 March, Sreeparvathy K.: Kozhikode District Committee is protesting against CPI(M) State committee’s decision of naming AN Shamseer as the candidate for Vadakara constituency. The protests came in the District Secretariat and District Committee meetings held under Polit Buro member Kodiyeri Balakrishnan. They also demanded District Secretary TP Ramakrishnan to be contested in Vadakara instead of Shamseer.
Kodiyeri said that decisions will be taken after a detailed study on the issue and also assured to take the issue into the state leaders. It was the state committee which decided to give the Vadakara seat to DYFI State Joint Secretary Shamseer. But the District committee wants a senior leader contest the election and take back the seat as it is a question of pride.
