Written by: Staff

Pathanamthitta, Kerala Apr 13 (UNI) Former Kerala Chief Minister A K Antony today said if the United Democratic Front (UDF) won a majority in the assembly elections, Mr Ommen Chandy would again be the Chief Minister.

Speaking at an election meeting held at Koodal, near Konni, he said it was a pity that even at the fag end of electioneering, the Left Democratic Front(LDF) could not declare the name of its Chief Ministerial candidate.

Mr Antony said Mr V S Achuthanandan was allergic to development and donned the mantle of a perpetual ''fighter.'' Further, Mr Achuthanandan hinted several times that he would lead people's agitation even while occupying the Chief Minister's post, his claimed.

The former Chief Minister said the anti-development stance would be detrimental to the interests of the State.

The people of Kerala yearned for a leader, who executed development plans with ''high speed'', he added.

Mr Antony said the UDF must come to power to realise the development dreams weaved by the common man.

The UDF suceeded in solving so many vexed economic problems within a span of five years, he said. He described the rule of LDF as a period of ''bounced cheques''.

The slogan of UDF was ''a new Keralam sans poverty''. Under the UDF rule, even the agriculture sectors showed signs of rejuvenation and to sustain this pace, Mr Ommen Chandy should be made the Chief Minister again,'' he added.
