Main opponent is BJP, says Antony

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Senior Congress leader A K Antony and AICC working committee member A K Antony has said the real opponent for the UDF in the coming Kerala Assembly election is BJP.

Taking part in the election programme organised by Kesari Memorial Trust, Antony said a Cabinet without the presence of the BJP should come into existence in Kerala.   

“If BJP opens is account in Kerala, the communal harmony existing in the State will get disturbed. Secularism should be cared like the ‘iris of one’s eye’. Danger is hidden in BJP’s election campaign. Arrival of the prime minister and union ministers together is an indication of this danger. The Congress has not, however, befriended Communal forces,” said Antony who also alleged that RSS was trying to trigger communal tensions.    

The former defence minister said “the CPM has been trying to get at least 10 additional votes. Corruption is different from allegation and CPM’s development policy lags by 25 years.”
