Hung Parliament likely: Ravi

By Our Staff Reporter

ALAPPUZHA, APRIL 21. The AICC general secretary, Vayalar Ravi, has opined that a hung Parliament was likely after the Lok Sabha elections.

Inaugurating the third stage of campaign of the Congress candidate from Alappuzha, V.M. Sudheeran, at Aroor today, Mr. Ravi said the present situation was not favourable for the NDA.

The exit polls conducted after the first phase of elections had revealed a different picture compared to the opinion polls held earlier, said Mr. Ravi.

The NDA would not get a majority to rule the country, and the exit polls had revealed that the Congress was emerging stronger, said Mr. Ravi.

Mr. Ravi said the rivalry between groups led by Pinarayi Vijayan and V.S. Achuthanandan had intensified in the CPI(M).

Both the leaders would not even share a dais at present, he said.

On Mr. Achuthanandan's claim that some of the second-level leaders of the Congress would join the CPI(M), Mr. Ravi said that it was a mere dream of Mr. Achuthanandan.

The DCC president, C.R. Jayaprakash, presided over the function. Mr. Sudheeran and the former DCC president, G. Balachandran, spoke.
