THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: On the first day of the KSU organisational elections held in Kasaragod, Idukki and Pathanamthitta districts on Monday, ‘A’ group claimed victory in two. Violence marred the process in Pathanamthitta. Counting of votes would be held at KPCC office here on March 25. The consensus reached between A and I groups to share the districts in the ratio of 8:6 collapsed in the run-up, ensuring a keen contest. Trouble started in Pathanamthitta after ‘I’ group leaders tried to vote even after the 4 pm deadline. In the melee, a few journalists covering the event got injured.

“We are expecting a win in all the three," a prominent ‘A’ group leader told DC. "There was a slight delay in starting the polling in Pathanamthitta due to technical reasons forcing the NSUI office bearers to extend the voting time." Kannur, Alappuzha and Kottayam districts will go to the organisational polls on Tuesday and Wayanad, Ernakulam and Kollam on Wednesday, Malappuram, Palakkad and Thiruvananthapuram Thursday and Kozhikode and Thrissur the next day.

 

They will elect the state and national committee members. The strength of the State and district committees has gone up to 40 and 25 respectively.
