New Delhi, April 10, 2024 — In a stunning turn of events, Anil K. Antony, son of veteran Congress leader and former Union Defence Minister A.K. Antony, has sent shockwaves through the political landscape. Anil, who recently joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has openly defied his father’s party, creating a rift that has left many in disbelief.

The Rebel Within the Ranks Anil Antony

Anil Antony’s decision to switch allegiances from the Congress to the BJP has left political pundits scratching their heads. The Antony family has long been associated with the Congress, and A.K. Antony himself is a respected figure within the party. His tenure as Defence Minister was marked by integrity and commitment to public service.

But Anil’s move has upended expectations. The scion of the Antony family, known for its unwavering loyalty to the Congress, has chosen a different path. His decision to contest the upcoming Lok Sabha polls as a BJP candidate from the Pathanamthitta constituency in Kerala has sent shockwaves through the political circles.

A History of Rebellion

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time an Antony has rebelled against the Congress. In the 1980s, A.K. Antony led a splinter faction that joined the Left Democratic Front (LDF) government under E.K. Nayanar. The move was seen as a bold departure from the party line, and it appears that history is repeating itself with Anil’s defection.

Father vs. Son: A Clash of Ideals

At a recent press conference, A.K. Antony made his feelings clear. He publicly stated that he wished his son would lose the election. Anil’s rival in the south Kerala constituency, Anto Antony (no relation), is the Congress candidate. The veteran leader’s words were unequivocal: “Party over family. Anil should not win.”

Anil’s Response

Anil Antony, on the other hand, responded with sympathy. He called the Congress leaders “outdated” and expressed his understanding of their predicament. “I have only sympathy for them,” he said. “Times change, and so do political affiliations.”

The Big Question: Impact on Lok Sabha Polls

As the nation gears up for the Lok Sabha polls, the Antony family drama has become a focal point. Will Anil’s rebellion resonate with voters? Can he sway the electorate in a constituency that has traditionally leaned towards the Congress? Only time will tell.


The political earthquake caused by Anil Antony’s defection has left everyone wondering about the future of the Antony legacy. As the campaign heats up, all eyes are on Pathanamthitta, where father and son are pitted against each other. One thing is certain: this election will be anything but predictable.

Stay tuned for more updates as the battle for Pathanamthitta unfolds. And remember, in politics, loyalty can be a fickle friend.
