Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 17: The reported move of Congress and CPI(M) for a tie-up in West Bengal would not have any impact on the party-led UDF government in Kerala, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said here today.
Congress in Kerala would not place any hurdles for such a move, he said "We in Kerala are not going to make any attempt to put hurdle for the tie-up. Whatever may be the decision, it is not going to have any impact in Kerala," he said in response to queries during a cabinet briefing here.
Chandy said a decision in this regard has to be taken by party's central leadership and state leaders of West Bengal on the basis of political situation of that state. He said the UDF in Kerala is prepared to face the coming polls unitedly with confidence. On selection of candidates, Chandy said people prefer to elect candidates who work for them and take interest on various issues affecting them.
