LS polls: Cong and CPM inch closer in Ker­ala

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

With an eye on the LS polls, CPM’s Ker­ala unit sprang a sur­prise when its state sec­re­tary Kodiy­eri Balakr­ish­nan sug­gested that the Left party is ready to sink its dif­fer­ences with Congress and to “take all tac­ti­cal steps to en­sure that BJP is ousted”.

Congress ap­peared to echo the sen­ti­ment, with Ker­ala unit chief Mul­la­pally Ra­machan­dran say­ing party would ally with CPM pro­vided it gave up its vi­o­lent politics. In Ben­gal, this will mean Congress and Left par­ties will de­lib­er­ate on the prospects of a tie-up. P10
