Congress confident of UDF winning 80 seats

Thiruvananthapuram: The Congress exuded confidence that it would regain power after a hiatus of five years with a tally of not less than 80 seats in the Assembly elections.

KPCC president Mullappally Ramachandran had led a detailed district-wise analysis of the voting trend.

District Congress Committee office-bearers and political agents from across Kerala participated in the online conclave.

DCC presidents reported that they sensed a pro-United Democratic Front (UDF) wave in most constituencies. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi had catalysed the Congress’s election campaign.

The UDF hoped to lead decisively in Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Alappuzha and Pathanamthitta districts. In Ernakulam, 'Twenty-Twenty' had not dented the electoral prospects of the UDF. The coalition hoped to reap rich electoral dividends in Central Kerala.

In Malabar, the UDF has surged ahead. Its prospects looked high.
