THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Senior leader K Muraleedharan said that he will not contest the Palakkad bypolls and will campaign for Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi in Wayanad. No Congressman can stay away when the Nehru family is in the race, clarified Murali in an interview given to a media.

'Will not contest the Palakkad by-polls. There are a lot of youngsters to compete there. Vattiyoorkavu is my family. I was with Vattiyoorkavu in its joys and sorrows. Will be active there. Will campaign for Priyanka Gandhi in Wayanad. When one from the Nehru family is contesting, no Congressman can stay away', said Murali. He added that there is a need for major changes in the organizational level of the party.


Soon after his defeat in the Lok Sabha polls, he had announced to abstain from active politics and will not contest polls anymore. However, when Priyanka is contesting from Wayanad, he is all set to become active again. There are hints that he will be in the race in Vattiyoorkavu in the coming assembly elections.


Meanwhile, posters are seen in many parts of the state demanding Murali’s entry to lead the congress. The posters are mostly seen in Palakkad, Thiruvananthapuram and Kannur.
