Separately, CPI state secretary Kanam Rajendran made it clear on Sunday that his party would not withdraw its candidate from Wayanad.
“We are confident. We will fight a very tough battle. Congress has lost its confidence. That is why Rahul Gandhi is contesting in Wayanad,” Kanam said. “Rahul has found out that Amethi is not safe. That is why he plans to contest in Wayanad. A group and I groups were fighting over Wayanad. Rahul became a candidate there in this situation. This is a liability for Rahul,” added Kanam.
PP Suneer, the former district secretary of the CPI in Malappuram, is the LDF candidate there.
