Along with him, 11 other SKM candidates also filed their nomination papers today for the forthcoming assembly and parliamentary elections.

Dismissing rumors of dissidence within the party after it declared the names of candidates, the SKM president said that the party has adopted a democratic process for selecting candidates and will abide by the decision of the Parliamentary Board.
