KANNUR: Kerala Karshaka Union president and Kerala Congress(J) leader Jose Chemberi has demanded resignation of party leaders P.J. Joseph, T.U. Kuruvilla and Mons Joseph as MLAs for their ‘defection' after winning the elections on the platform of the Left Democratic Front (LDF).

Mr. Chemberi, who is loyal to party leader P.C. Thomas, said in a statement that the three MLAs who had left the party following their decision for a merger with another party in the United Democratic Front (UDF) were defectors as they left the LDF for their own vested interests after enjoying all the fruits of the LDF rule over the past four years. The defectors were acceptable to neither the LDF nor the UDF, he said.
