Malappuram (Kerala), April 4: Ending speculation of a rift in the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML), businessman and party secretary P.V. Abdul Wahab was on Saturday nomited from Kerala for the upcoming Rajya Sabha polls. Wahab has had one term in the upper house in the past and there was strong opposition to his nomition again. A section of the IUML had supported party general secretary and former legislator K.P.A. Majeed. “The decision of our supreme leader Pakad Syed Hyderali Shihab Thangal is fil and it was he who had made the announcement. We have the convention of giving the supreme leader the complete authority to make the decision,” said former union minister E. Ahamed, a Lok Sabha member. Polls to the Rajya Sabha from Kerala will be held later this month for three vacancies caused due to the retirement of three upper house members. The Congress has already chosen its senior leader Vayalar Ravi as the party’s nominee. The CPI-M has fielded youth leader K.K. Raghesh. (IANS)
