Kottayam: Senior Congress leader Oommen Chandy rejected KPCC president Mullappally Ramachandran’s statement regarding UDF’s plan to seek LDF support to defeat BJP in Manjeshwar.

He pointed out that UDF can defeat BJP in Manjeshwar without the support of LDF.

"UDF was successful in defeating BJP in the last polls. So we will repeat the victory. We are not ready for any compromise with BJP. Defeating BJP is the main aim of Congress", Chandy said.
