A former MLA of Congress from Sulthan Bathery seat left the Congress camp after over thirty years of her association with the party.
She had become chairperson of the Kerala Women’s Commission in 2012.
Senior CPI-M leader and former Minister P K Sreemathi and Kalpetta candidate and LJD state president Sreyams Kumar were among those who reached Rosakutty’s house in Sulthan Bathery to welcome her to the LDF fold.
Earlier, Lathika Subhash, chief of the Kerala Mahila Congress, had tonsured her head after she was being denied the ticket. Now, she is fighting the polls as independent.
On March 10, senior leader P C Chacko had also quit the Congress, alleging groupism in the state party unit. (UNI)
