Kochi, Sep 22: The Jacobites faction of the Christian community has decided to support LDF candidate in the by-election claiming that the Left Government always support the section in a justifiable way.
The representatives of Jacobites extended the support at a time when the government announced by-election in six Assembly constituencies, Jacobites Media cell chairman Dr Kuriakose Mar Theophalise told reporters here on Sunday.
Except Pala where by-election is on Monday, in the rest of the five constituencies polling will be held on October 21.
The LDF government also intervened in the affairs of Jacobites for settling the dispute with the Orthodox faction.
To a question, he said UDF is not against us, but when a dispute cropped up, LDF helped in settling the issue amicably. (UNI)
