Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday filed his nomination from Wanayand constituency. Sister and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi, former chief minister Oommen Chandy, KPCC president Mullappally Ramachandran also accompanied him to the Wayanad district collectorate.
The district is in high alert as the state government during Rahul’s previous visit to the state had denied permission to visit Wayanad following the anti-Naxalite operations in Vythiri.
