Argument over choice of UDF candidates continues

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Heated arguments are continuing over the selection of Congress candidates for the Assembly election. For resolving the issue, Chief Minister Chandy, KPCC president Sudheeran and Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala will meet soon.

The decisive meeting of the UDF will be held under the chairmanship of Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

Earlier, Sudheeran and Oommen Chandy had made it clear that their stands would not change. Chandy had said that he was ready to keep off the election and let either Sudheeran or A K Antony lead the election for the UDF. This reaction came when cartain candidates suggested by Chandy were opposed by Sudheeran.  

Meanwhile, disputed seats of the UDF have risen from  five to nine. Sudheeran and Chandy were however not ready to talk to the media before the crucial meeting.
