Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Wednesday rejected the assertion of CPI(M) that the present UDF Government would fall after next year's Lok Sabha polls, saying "it is only a wishful thinking" by some.






"They (Opposition) are saying that this government will not complete its terms since the day of assuming office in May 2011, but nothing has happened and nothing will happen," Chandy told reporters here.

"There is no threat to the government. UDF will face the polls unitedly and put up a good show," Chandy said while responding to CPI-M politburo member Kodiyeri Balakarishnan's statement saying that there would be changes in the UDF Government after the Lok Sabha polls as some of the Front constituents were unhappy.

On CBI special court's order discharging CPI-M state Secretary Pinarayi Vijayan in the SNC Lavalin Case, Chandy said UDF stand always was to respect judiciary.

"We always respect judiciary irrespective of whether the verdict is in our favour or not," he added.

"I am not going into the technical aspect of the case and also not finding fault with anybody," he said.

"How can one say that the case is closed when higher courts are there," he said when asked whether one could assume that graft case against Vijayan was over.
