Wayanad: According to latest reports it is learned that the NDA is all set to field Anto Augustin as their candidate in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Reports put forward that the leadership came to a decision regarding this in the seat that BDJS holds.
The NDA expects to bag the christian votes through Anto.
Wayanad is one among the four seats that the NDA gave BDJS. Lot fell for Anto as there was a decision taken in the state council of the BDJS to field an independent candidate who is a familiar face among the voters.
Augustine who is the Kerala Congress State Organising Committee secretary was asked to stand in the election by the party, it is learned.
The BDJS and the NDA speculate that the party will be benefited with the candidature of Anto as the constituency is Christian dominated.
The NDA calculates that Anto can easily win the polls by grabbing the votes from BJP, BDJS, Kerala Congress, NDA and with a tagline of himself being a native of Wayanad.
It is also learned than the five member team appointed to select the candidates would make an announcement regarding this soon.
