Asked about visa problems for Indians in Kuwait and some other Gulf countries, Mr Ravi said he would take up the matter through diplomatic channels. The Minister would visit various Gulf countries by the middle of next month.

Asked about his reaction to Congress leader A K Antony's call to Mr K Karunakaran to come back to Congress, Mr Ravi said being a Minister he would not like to comment at present. He would wait for discussions at the party leadership level on this issue, though Mr Antony was free to express his views.

However, it was up to Mr Karunakaran to take a decision, he said.

"We all regret the humiliating experiences of Mr Karunakaran at present."We never underestimated him, though he overestimated himself before leaving the Congress," he said.

Mr Ravi said prospects of UDF winning the coming elections in Kerala are bright. The new developments, one by one, were favouring the UDF, he said.
