Antony, Karunakaran and an iftar party

November 22, 2003 03:04 IST

Bitter rivals A K Antony and K Karunkaran came under one roof on Friday evening during an Iftar party hosted by the latter.

The Kerala chief minister and the senior Congress leader have been at loggerheads for supremacy in the party.

Antony, who made a brief appearance at the venue, left early while other leaders -- leader of opposition V S Achuthanandan, deputy leader Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, Communist Party of India (Marxist) state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan and Left Democratic Front convenor Paloli Mohammed Kutty -- stayed on.    

When journalists crowded around Karunakaran, the senior leader said, "I am sure journalists here are sensible enough not to ask political questions on an occasion like this. All I want to say is that god is supreme and extend my Ramzan greetings to everyone."    

Karunakaran has vowed to bring down the Antony government by November 25.
