Congress-BJP pact in polls likely: Murali

Staff Reporter

ALAPPUZHA: The National Congress (Indira) leader K. Muraleedharan has observed that there are indications that the Congress is going to reach a secret understanding with the BJP during byelections to the Koothuparamba and Azhikode Assembly constituencies.

Addressing a meet-the-press programme here on Tuesday, Mr. Muraleedharan pointed out that the BJP was not competing in the byelections. "We have information that they would vote for the UDF candidates," he said.

Mr. Muraleedharan said the NC(I) would work to ensure a pathetic defeat for the UDF candidates in both the constituencies. Regarding the reported statement of the Congress leader A. K. Antony, on the propriety of the National Congress working for the victory of LDF candidates, Mr. Muraleedharan wanted to know whether Mr. Antony would openly declare that the UDF did not need the votes of the BJP in the coming byelection. The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) was formed to prevent the BJP from coming to power, he said.
