K.P.A.C Lalitha withdraws from poll fray

Vadakkanchery: Veteran Malayalam actress KPAC Lalitha Monday said she is not keen to contest the upcoming Assembly polls in Kerala on a CPI-M ticket, the remark coming on the heels of protests over her candidature.

she told reporters that her "health" would not be able to take the strain of being a people's representative.

"To be a people's representative is a tough task. It's not like acting in a film... I have already told the local party leaders that I am not willing to contest."

She insisted, however, that she was not withdrawing due to the protests by some party workers. She added that she has already informed the party about her decision.

On Sunday, Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) activists had taken out a protest march in Wadakancherry against the CPI-M's proposed move to field the 69-year-old actress. Earlier, posters appeared in various parts of the constituency against her candidature.

Meanwhile, CPI-M politburo member Pinarayi Vijayan told reporters at Kozhikode today that the party was considering fielding her from Wadakancherry if she was prepared to contest.

"We will only be too happy to put her up as our candidate. Candidates like Lalitha will help improve the party's image," he said.
