Thrissur: Posters have appeared in Vadakkanchery expressing protest in naming KPAC Lalitha as the LDF candidate in the Assembly constituency.

The posters are displayed in many parts of Vadakkanchery in the name of the Left Democratic Front (LDF). It rejects candidates directly fielded from top. What we need is not film stars but sons of the soil, the posters read.

KPAC Lalitha’s name had appeared in the draft list of probable candidates for the upcoming Assembly polls, approved by CPM state committee. The party’s district committee recommended her name as pro-CPM independent candidate from Vadakkanchery. Minister and Congress leader C.N. Balakrishnan is the sitting MLA there.

Lalitha, who is a supporter of the Communist party from the days of her association with the revolutionary drama troop KPAC, had reacted positively to her candidature.
