Kerala Elections 2021: Will ensure NCP candidates and allies win seats, assures Praful Patel

Ahead of the upcoming Assembly Elections in Kerala, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Praful Patel on Sunday said that the Left Democratic Front (LDF) will win the assembly polls and form government in the state for the second consecutive term.

Speaking about the chances of the LDF in the upcoming Assembly Elections, he said that they would have to ensure that NCP candidates, as well as others in the alliance win seats.

"We'll not only ensure NCP candidates' victory but are also going to ensure that the LDF, which we are a part of for the past 40 years, should also win in Kerala. In fact, this will be a record for 2 consecutive terms," Praful Patel was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

"There will be the LDF government and that itself shows how popular Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan is. It also shows that the people of Kerala are taking the right decisions in the interest of the development and welfare of the state," he added.

On the allegation by the Congress party against the LDF that they are in an unholy alliance with the BJP, he asked how it is possible since the party completely opposed the BJP at the national level.

The State Assembly elections for the 140-member Kerala assembly in 14 districts are set to be held in a single phase on April 6. The counting of votes will take place on May 2.
