CPI and LDF will field Candidates against Priyanka Gandhi Vadra in Wayanad Lok Sabha By-Election

Thiruvananthapuram: CPI on Tuesday said it will field a candidate against Congress candidate Priyanka Gandhi Vadra in the Wayanad Lok Sabha by-election. CPI state secretary Binoy Viswam told reporters here that the CPI holds the Wayanad Lok Sabha seat in the Left Democratic Front (LDF) and its candidate will contest the by-election.

“What is the doubt? CPI and LDF will not do anything that is favorable to the BJP. So, we will definitely field our candidate there,” he said. When asked about Priyanka’s candidature, he said that Congress has complete freedom to choose its candidate in any field. The Left leader also said that if the Congress party plans to vacate Wayanad, then there is no need for them to bring a prominent leader like Rahul Gandhi to the south. Senior CPI leader Annie Raja had recently contested the Lok Sabha elections from Wayanad against Rahul.

After the leadership meeting in New Delhi, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday said Rahul will keep the Rae Bareli Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh and vacate the Wayanad seat, from where his sister Priyanka will contest. Rahul had won from both Wayanad and Rae Bareli constituencies and had to vacate one seat within 14 days of the Lok Sabha results declared on June 4.
