I will back Left Front candidates (in Kerala) I am yet to take a final call. I met Sharad Pawar at 1 pm. Later today, at 7 pm, I will be meeting Ghulam Nabi Azad."

Chacko delivered a crushing blow on March 10 to the Congress party ahead of the forthcoming assembly elections when he walked out of the Grand Old Party. His reasons for exiting the party echoed the sentiments expressed by many before him.

"Some very junior people and personal staff are making party's important decisions, and groupism prevails in every level," he said.
