CPI(M) not hijacked seats from minor partners: CPI

Written by: Staff

Thiruvananthapuram, Apr 5 (UNI) Communisty Party of India (CPI) Kerala secretary Veliyam Bharghavan today said there was no conflict in the Left Democratic Front (LDF) on seat sharing and the slicing of seats of minor parties was with their permission.

Rejecting the allegations that the CPI(M), which headed the LDF, had wrested seats from its minor allies, the veteran CPI leader said though there had been some differences, the final decision in this regard was taken unanimously after discussing the issue with all its partners.

''There is no major rebel threat in the Front and the LDF will secure more than 100 seats in the elections as the people will use the opportunity to unseat the Congress-led UDF Government,'' Mr Bharghavan claimed while participating in the meet-the-press programme of the Kesari Memorial Journalists' Trust here.

On whether the LDF would go ahead with the proposed Smart City project at Kochi, he said, the Front was not against such projects and a final decision on it would be taken only after a detailed study.

Alleging that the law and order situation in the State had collapsed, the CPI leader said the first priority of the Front would be to restore law and order.
