Puthuppally bypoll campaign ends today

Puthuppally bypoll campaign ends today

Kottayam: The public campaign for Kerala’s most anticipated by-election in Puthuppally constituency will end at 6 p.m. on Sunday.

The bypoll was necessitated by the passing away of former Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Oomen Chandy, who represented the constituency for a record 53 years.

Oomen Chandy’s son and Youth Congress outreach cell national coordinator, Chandy Oomen is contesting as the Congress candidate and is opposed by CPI(M) leader, Jaik C. Thomas. The BJP is also contesting the polls with the party's Kottayam district president, Lijin Lal as its candidate.

Senior leaders from all the major political parties campaigned at Puthuppally for the past three weeks since the election was declared by the Election Commission of India.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan campaigned for three days at the constituency for the Left front candidate and CPI(M) state committee member Jaik C. Thomas.

Senior Congress leaders, A.K. Antony, Shashi Tharoor, Opposition leader V.D. Satheeshan, and former state home minister Ramesh Chennithala campaigned for the UDF candidate, Chandy Oomen.

BJP leaders, Radha Mohan Aggarwal, V. Muraleedharan, and other senior leaders also participated in the campaign for the party candidate, Lijin Lal.

The election for the Puthuppally by-election is to be held from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on September 5, Tuesday, and the counting of votes will take place on September 8, Friday.
