Rahul Gandhi contesting from Wayanad will be a historical blunder: K Surendran
Pathanamthitta: BJP’s Pathanamthitta candidate K Surendran said that the BJP can secure an upset victory in the constituency in the Lok Sabha polls with the help of the public.
Stating that Rahul Gandhi was the Left front’s prime ministerial candidate, Surendran said that it would be a historical blunder if Rahul contests from Wayanad.
“The BJP will contest the LS polls unitedly. The BJP and Congress will lock horns. LDF is insignificant in Kerala. Instead of contesting against the part’s prime ministerial candidate, it would be better for the CPI to withdraw their candidate and make it a contest between BJP and Congress. Rahul is coming to Kerala as he is sure of facing a defeat in Amethi. But the Prime minister’s chair is taken for 2019 and 2024,” Surendran said.
“Sabarimala issue is the major topic in this LS poll. The Pinarayi government cheated the devotees and tried to destroy the Sabarimala. Nobody should mandate that only one subject should be discussed during the polls. We will continue to raise questions even if the government remains silent,” he added.
