Kannur: The move to deploy Central security forces ahead of the November 7 assembly bypoll in Kerala was a ploy by the Congress led UDF government to "threaten" genuine voters from casting their ballots, Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan said here on Tuesday.

"The Congress' moves to theaten and intimidate voters under the guise of deploying Central security forces will not work as people in Kannur would caste their ballots on polling day," he said, addressing an election meeting here.

At another poll convention, CPI-M State Secretary Pinarayi Vijayan said all people named in the new voters list were determined to caste their votes.

Senior leaders of opposition UDF and ruling LDF were busy campaigning here today for their candidates for the Nov 7 bypoll to Kannur assembly constituency, considered a prestigeous contest by both fronts in the State.
