Thiruvananthapuram: AICC general secretary K C Venugopal may contest from Wayanad. He represented Alappuzha in the outgoing and the previous Lok Sabhas.
Congress sources said that LDF candidate Arif is a very strong candidate and it will be very tough to Venugopal to take on such a candidate in Alappuzha and at the same discharges the duties being the general secretary in charge of organizational issues in Delhi. So he is preferring a more comfortable Wayanad constituency.
It will be a tough task for Congress state leadership to find a winnable candidate for Alappuzha.
The late Congress leader M I Shahanawaz represented Wayanad present and previous terms
