Malappuram by-poll: BJP to field A.P Abdullakutty, V.P Sanu is LDF candidate

Malappuram: The BJP has decided to field its national vice-president A.P Abdullakutty for the Malappuram Lok Sabha by-election.

By fielding Abdullakutty, the party is also eying a direct BJP versus IUML fight for the first time in Malappuram. In the 2019 LS poll, IUML national general secretary P.K Kunhalikutty won by securing 57.01% votes against CPI(M)’s V.P Sanu who got only 31.87% votes.

Meanwhile, CPI(M) state secretariat has decided to field V.P Sanu again for the Malappuram Lok Sabha by-election.
