Ministerial post desired before by-election:Jhonny Nellore

Jhonny NelloreKottayam: Kerala Congress (Jacob) group Chairman, Jhonny Nellore has stated that his group wants the ministerial post even before the by-poll elections. He is to express his views at the UDF conference to be held on November 9, 2011.The coalition parties also support this view, he said. However, the UDF decision shall be final.

A crucial Assembly by-poll is to take place in the state in six months for Piravom in Ernakulam district which fell vacant due to the death of Kerala Congress (J) leader TM Jacob, who was Food Minister in the Chandy cabinet. The party has no intentions to merge with the Mani group he asserted. Jacob’s death has further narrowed down the UDF majority in the 140-member Assembly. According to political observers, if the UDF fails to retain Piravom, it could only shake the government.
