sreekuttan-

THRISSUR: The Kerala Students Union (KSU) will move the Kerala High Court on Friday in connection with the victory of SFI candidate in Kerala Varma College through recounting. The KSU has demanded a re-election.

KSU candidate Sreekuttan had won by one vote when the counting was completed in the college union polls held the other day. In the recounting, it was announced that the SFI candidate had won by 11 votes. KSU alleged that the elections were sabotaged with the backing of the supporters of the left teachers' organization. KSU blamed Minister R Bindu and Cochin Devaswom Board President for interfering to sabotage the counting. KSU state chief Aloysius Xavier is continuing his hunger strike in front of the Collectorate, which started last evening.


When the counting of votes was completed, KSU candidate Sreekuttan had won by one vote. The SFI candidate won by 11 votes when the results of the recounting demanded by them came out at midnight. The first allegation of KSU is that the power went off twice during the recounting to subvert the result. The second allegation is that the KSU chairman candidate's demand for a recounting in daylight was rejected and it was conducted at night on the directions of the Cochin Devaswom Board President Dr Sudarshan. The third allegation is that Minister R Bindu, a former teacher of the college, directed to sabotage the election.
