Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 25: Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana (SNDP) general secretary V Natesan has said again that his recently floated party-Bharat Dharma Jana Seva (BDJS) has yet not decided on allying with any front or going alone in the Kerala Assembly elections to he held in a few months, a report in The News Minute said.
Natesan said his party has kept its doors open and could join any front that protects their right.
Meanwhile, V Muraleedharan, the former BJP state president attached little significance to Natesan's praise for the current government of Oommen Chandy, saying it would not affect his party's relation with the BDJS, the News Minute report said.
Muraleedharan said this while speaking on reports of Natesan praising Chandy as the most talented and capable chief minister the state ever had, on Sunday. Natesan contradicted his earlier statements to praise the UDF government, saying it contributed well for the uplift of the Ezhava community.
Sources in the Congress-led UDF, however, said the BDJS would not join the former. This makes the situation in the southern state quite interesting since Natesan had said in an interview to Asianet News earlier this month that his party had no plans to join hands with the BJP, said the News Minute report.
He had said the BDJS is not in favour of an official alliance with the BJP but could consider cooperation in certain constituencies.
This happened in the wake of reports that the BDJS and BJP were having differences over distribution of seats in case of a tie-up, the report added.
