Decision prompted by AAP’s anti-corruption stance: Janu

The Adivasi Gothra Maha Sabha (AGMS) led by C.K. Janu has decided to support the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidates in the Lok Sabha elections in Kerala.

Ms. Janu, who announced the decision here on Monday, said the AGMS intended to support AAP as that party’s motto was to fight corruption. Adivasis were the victims of corruption and hence it was necessary to support such a political organisation to fight the evil, she said. She, however, said that the AGMS would support the United Democratic Front candidate in the Idukki Lok Sabha constituency as the rival Left Democratic Front was in an “unholy alliance with mining mafia. ”
