Thiruvananthapuram: The national leadership of BJP has decided not to field Union Minister V. Muraleedharan for the Assembly elections in Kerala.
BJP state president K. Surendran is likely to be fielded from Konni in Pathanamthitta as chances of victory looks remote at Manjeswaram in Kasaragod where he had previously contested.
Muraleedharan will lead the election campaign activities for NDA in Kerala.
E. Sreedharan is likely to be fielded in Thrissur while Kummanam Rajasekharan in Nemom, P.K Krishnadas in Kattakada and M.T Ramesh in Kozhikode.
It is also expected that A.N Radhakrishnan will enter the fray in Manaloor, C. Krishnakumar in Malampuzha and V.V Rajesh in Vattiyoorkkavu.
