Activists of the United Democratic Front (UDF) observed a day-long fast in Mezhuvely near Aranmula on Wednesday demanding action against Adoor tahsildar M.J. Jaisingh, who had allegedly intervened in the process of counting of votes and declaration of election result in ward-9 of Mezhuvely grama panchayat.

K. Sivadasan Nair, MLA, alleged that the tahsildar had violated the Panchayati Raj Act by entering the counting centre and intervening in the counting process. The official's intervention resulted in the UDF losing the ward. The MLA called upon the Election Commission to take action against the official.
