PATHANAMTHITTA: As the controversy around his absence in the last leg of campaigning in Konni is heating up, Adoor Prakash MP has come out with an explanation. While denying reports of a rift within the party, the MP from Attingal said that he did not attend the campaign works as he was attending Congress' Parliamentary Council meet in Delhi.


"As some reports say, I did not stay away from the campaigning works. I have also attended several meetings seeking vote for the UDF candidate in Konni. However, I was not able to attend the last leg of campaigning as I had to attend the Parliamentary Council meet in Delhi on Saturday and Sunday," he said.


Earlier, Adoor Prakash had opposed the Congress leadership's decision to field P Mohanraj in Konni constituency. Reports also suggested that Praksh had threatened that he would not participate in the campaigning works for Mohanraj. Following this, the party leadership held a meeting with the MP to sort out the differences.

Meanwhile, the heavy ongoing rain in the state has been posing a huge threat to the polling that has begun at 7 am in the morning. As per reports, the voting percentage is pretty low in all constituencies except Manjeshwaram. It is learnt that officials are planning to make certain changes regarding the polling booths in Ernakulam due to heavy rain and waterlogging.
