Nadar resigns as MLA, files nomination as Independent

Written by: Staff

Thiruvananthapuram, Apr 3 (UNI) A day after Janata Dal (S) leadership asked him to withdraw his candidature, former Transport Minister A Neelalothithadasan Nadar today resigned as an MLA and filed his nomination as an Independent candidate from Kovalam constituency.

Talking to newspersons here, after tendering his resignation letter to Legislature Secretary M C Valsan, he said that he did not get justice as his party and the Left Democratic Front were not ready to examine the facts that led to his conviction in the cases.

Following the directive from the LDF, in which the JD (S) is a constituent, party president M P Veerendrakumar had asked him to keep himself away from the electoral fray in view of his conviction in two sexual harassement cases.

He was among the eight JD (S) candidates announced by the party on April 29 for the April/ May elections.

Mr Nadar alleged that the denial of ticket to him was a conspiracy by certain vested interests.

He was given the ticket by the Parliamentary Board of the JD (S) and the state leadership could not reverse the decision, he said adding that only the National leadership could take such a decision.
