as confusion continued over three seats alloted to KC(M) by

The tussle over Thiruvalla between sitting MLA from
Kalloopara Joseph M Puthussery, who has lost his constituency
in the delimitation exercise and Victor T Thomas, who lost to
Mathew T Thomas in Thiruvalla in the previous election, too
continued without any immediate solution.

Mandalam presidents and upwards from 12 panchayats
participated in the opinion poll held at party headquarters
The results were reported to party chairman K M Mani.
