Kochi: Janata Dal (Secular) leader Mathew T. Thomas on Thursday said that the JD-S would use its own symbol to contest the Lok Sabha election in Kottayam constituency.
He was talking to the press prior to the meeting over the seat-sharing for the Lok Sabha polls.
He rebuffed reports that the former MP P C Thomas would contest the polls.
The LDF meeting on Wednesday had formalised its decision to allot Kottayam to the JD-S.
The party has been trying to zero in on a person who could represent the party in the constituency where the Kerala Congress (M) nominee Jose K. Mani is set to seek re-election.
