Mr. Karunakaran, who reviewed the arrangements for the November 19 rally of the faction, told newspersons that no more time could be given for the change of leadership. He was asked if he agreed to the UDF partners' stand that they could wait until the first week of December for a decision by the high command.
Mr. Karunakaran said the Antony Government should go and it should go as early as possible. The criticisms by the Ministers as well as by the UDF partners were proof enough that the Government could not go on like this, he said.
