New Delhi: Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Monday dismissed talk of early Lok Sabha elections, saying they will be held in 2014 as scheduled.
"Elections will be held in 2014. (There is) no need to discuss that issue now, no need to worry about that," the Congress leader told reporters here when asked about the possibility of an early general elections.

His statement came days after Finance Minister P Chidambaram ruled out early Lok Sabha polls.

Chidambaram had said that the UPA government would complete its agenda for 2013 and then go for polls.
