Fearing this, the UDF leadership had issued a strict warning to the standing committee members to cast votes without mistakes.
Sunila Selvan of the LDF was elected the town planning committee chairperson.
Dissent in the UDF over a change of guard helped the LDF bag the town planning committee chief post.
With Sunila assuming charge as the chairperson, LDF has so far gained control over four committees.
Shiny, the only councillor who is not a member of any committee, resigned from the post as chairperson of town planning committee intending to become Mayor of Kochi.
