JSS to contest six seats solely in Assembly pollstext_fields
Kochi: The Janadhipathya Samrakshana Samithi (JSS) has decided to contest in six seats in the Assembly election.
“The CPI(M) invited me to the AKG centre just to say that they can’t allot us seats in the election,” K.R Gowriyamma told reporters.
Gowriyamma, who left the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) in 1994, formed her own party-Janaathipathiya Samrakshana Samithy (JSS) and till 2011 was a strong ally of the Congress led-United Democratic Front (UDF).
After her defeat in the 2011 polls, she has been playing truant and as a result her party split many times, and last year she expressed her desire to return to the CPI-M.
And after a gap of two decades, the veteran last month came to the AKG centre and held talks with the CPI-M leadership. She was expecting to get a seat, but her hopes were dashed early this week when the CPI-M decided not to give her a seat. "I was cheated by them, and now I will make my own decision," said Gowri.
