Thiruvananthapuram | Congress-led UDF is likely to field Dr Sulekha, wife of former speaker G Karthikeyan, to contest from Aruvikkara Assembly constituency, where election will be held on June 27.
Talking to newspersons here, KPCC President V M Sudheeran said the party would field a candidate who could remind the memories of former speaker G Karthikeyan, who played a major role in the development of the constituency.
Stating that the UDF would announce the name of the candidate soon, he said the party is in full confident to win the election as the present Congress-led UDF had implemented many pro-poor programmes in the State.
To a question on bar-bribe case, he said corruption allegations aimed at tarnishing the image of the Government would not affect the winning chances of the UDF in the election.
