Kozhikode: Deputy Leader of the Opposition Kodiyeri Balakrishnan on Wednesday said that after the Lok Sabha elections, a change in governance would occur in the State, a remark which has kicked up heated discussions within the allies of the ruling UDF.
"Chief Minister Oommen Chandy will not complete five-year term as some of the constituents in the UDF are not happy," The CPI-M politburo member said speaking to mediapersons here.
He said the CBI special court verdict in the SNC Lavalin graft case would strengthen the LDF resolve to fight against corruption.
"The verdict in the SNC Lavalin case is a strong warning for the Congress," he said.
UDF had been utilising the issue for the last several years and it had reached a high in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls, he said. The "false" propaganda by UDF affected the LDF prospects slightly in the election, he said.
To a query, he said veteran CPI-M leader V S Achuthanandan had given strength to the party during a difficult situation.
Balakrishnan is here as part of a rally, conducted by LDF demanding Chandy's resignation over the solar scam.
