“I have been saying time and again that I am yet to find a single person who voted in the 11th National Election. Menon said, even if it’s late. I thank him,” he said while speaking to the media on Sunday (Oct 20) after a meeting of the political bloc’s policymakers.

His remarks come a day after Menon told an event of his party in Barishal that the people were not able to exercise their franchises in the Dec 30 elections and local body polls held after it.
