Thiruvananthapuram, March 15 (IANS) Senior Congress leader A.K. Antony on Tuesday said that the rival fronts led by the ruling Congress and opposition CPI-M in Kerala were evenly poised ahead of the May 16 assembly polls.
“As things stand now, Left Democratic Front led by the Communist Party of India-Marxist and the Congress-led United Democratic Front are equally poised. Now, selection of candidates will hold the key. The youth and new faces will get more chances this time,” said the former defence minister.
Antony, re-elected to the Rajya Sabha from Kerala on Monday for the third successive term, told reporters at the state Congress headquarters here that should the Congress retain power in Kerala, more caution would be exercised in governance.
