Kummanam kicks up row, says Sabarimala is poll issue

Pennews

Former Mzoram Governor and BJP leader Kummanam Rajasekharan has sparked off a controversy saying Sabarimala will be one of the main poll issues in Kerala.

Kummanam told mediapersons that the Election Commission was rethinking its decision. The Chief Election Officer on Monday made it clear that political parties should not invoke the Sabarimala issue during the Lok Sabha election campaign as it would be a violation of mode of conduct.

Earlier, BJP state president Sreedhran Pillai had taken a stand contradictory to that of Kummanam, saying his party would not make Sabarimala an issue during election campaign.
