Kottayam: CPI state secretary Kanam Rajendran has asserted that the CPI will not be part of the LDF if the Kerala Congress (M) is inducted into it.
Addressing the CPI district delegates’ meeting at Karukachal on Wednesday, he threw the ball into the CPM’s court and asked it to decide about the future of the Left front. “None should think that the LDF will be strengthened if the CPI is weakened,” he said.
“The LDF stands against corruption and it should not induct corruption into it,” he added.
Referring to the talk that Kerala Congress (M) chairman K.M. Mani may join the LDF for strengthening secularism, he said that the LDF doesn't need anyone else’s mediation for reinforcing secularism.
He recalled the words of former chief minister E.K. Nayanar who once said that Mr Mani was not trustworthy.
He had said in the Assembly in 1987 that Mr had ditched the LDF and joined the UDF in 1980 after promising to remain with the Left front.
