KOLLAM: Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala said the AICC would take a decision on Rahul Gandhi’s candidature in Wayanad by tomorrow. He said it was their desire to make Rahul contest in Kerala. “It is not just Oommen Chandy but we all have demanded him to contest here,” said Chennithala. He was speaking to reporters on Friday. He defended the demand and said it was out of a positive thought of getting more seats for Congress in South India which was needed to oust the Narendra Modi Government.

Why would they have if it is contesting in less than 40 seats?” he said.
