He said the people of the state were worried about handing over a second chance for Pinarayi Vijayan.
“The ruling government and the party will do anything to remain in power. In the coming days, the UDF workers should remain cautious,” he said.
He claimed the “beginning of the end of Narendra Modi-government” will begin from Kerala and with the “massive mandate”, the Congress party will fight against the government at the Centre and its “anti-people” policies.
“The Indian National Congress will resurrect itself under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi and fight against the destructive policies of Narendra Modi. Kerala will give the Congress party, the strength to organise massive protests against the Modi government,” he added.
The results will be out on May 2.
