A section of traditional LDF supporters would vote for the UDF in the Lok Sabha polls in Kerala realising the crucial role of the Congress to put a secular government in place, Chief Minister AK Antony said here on Friday.

Addressing a press meet as his 'Navothana Yatra' entered his home district of Alappuzha, Antony said Congress alone was in a position to unseat the BJP at the Centre.

Realising the changed political scenario, a section of those who had traditionally supported the Left parties would this time help the UDF, he said.

At Mullakkal, Antony urged the electorate of Alappuzha to re-elect Congress candidate VM Sudheeran to enable him to complete the developmental schemes initiated by him to regain the past glory of the town, described as 'Venice of the East.'
