Give Muvattupuzha to get Kuttanad: Joseph Faction to Congress

Kottayam, Feb 26 (UNI) Kerala Congress (Joseph) faction has come out with a condition to offer Kuttanad seat to the Congress for the coming by-election.
The seat would be offered to the Congress only if it was ready to give Muvattupuzha seat to them in the next Assembly election.
The Joseph faction has come out with this offer even as Jose K Mani had reiterated that Kuttanad seat would not be given away. Jacob Abraham had contested against Thomas Chandy in Kuttanad last time.
The seat fell vacant following the demise of Chandy of Nationalist Congress Party. Joseph group wants Abraham to contest from Kuttanad for the bypoll.
It said If at all it has to leave the Kuttanad seat to the Congress, then as an alternative it asked for Muvattupuzha seat well in advance.
When by-elections to Pala seat contested by late K M Mani came up, UDF allotted the seat to the Jose faction. The Joseph faction wanted the same stand to be taken for the Kuttanad bypolls too.
Meanwhile, attempts were being made by Joseph faction to bring K Francis, chairman of Janadhipathya Kerala Congress, into its fold. Earlier, Francis was with the Joseph faction but later formed Janadhipathya Kerala Congress to align with LDF
The Joseph faction was trying to merge or would bring Francis into their fold.
