Chengannur results will be an evaluation of Oppn: Chandy
Alappuzha: Former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said Saturday that the Chengannur election results will be an evaluation of the Opposition's performance.
In a special interview given to Mathrubhumi News, Oommen Chandy said the present political situation is evaluated during every election.
The government and the Opposition will be evaluated in the elections. There is no doubt about this, he said.
“Criticisms regarding the functioning of the Opposition are baseless. Such criticisms were also levelled when I was the Opposition leader. Finance Minister Thomas Isaac's stand that he will give concessions in fuel prices after the bypoll is an election stunt," Chandy said.
The former chief minister said that the LDF is fearing defeat in Chengannur and hence they are indulging in character assassination of the UDF candidate.
