Oommen Chandy dismisses Mullappally’s statement over seeking LDF support in Manjeshwaram
Kottayam: Senior Congress leader Oommen Chandy rejected KPCC president Mullappally’s statement regarding UDF’s plan to seek LDF support to defeat BJP in Manjeshwaram. He pointed out that UDF can defeat BJP in Manjeshwaram without the support of LDF.
“UDF was successful in defeating BJP in the last polls. So we will repeat the victory this time too. We are not ready for any compromise with BJP. Defeating BJP is the main aim of Congress,” said Oommen Chandy.
Mullappally declared the other day that UDF is ready to cooperate with LDF for countering RSS and BJP in Manjeshwaram. He also asked LDF whether they are ready to support UDF.
“CPM has fielded a weak candidate in Manjeshwaram to support BJP. So, we know that LDF will not cooperate with UDF,” said Mullappally criticising LDF.
