DIC(K) would not be a partner in UPA: Vayalar
Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 17 (UNI) Union Overseas Indian Affairs Minister Vayalar Ravi today said the Democratic Indira Congress (Karunakaran) would not become a partner of the United Progress Alliance (UPA) at the Centre.
Talking to newspersons after inaugurating the ''Bharat Nirman'', a Public Information Campaign at Kaniyapuram in the district, he said ''I do not feel that Mr Karunakaran's DIC(K) will become a partner through the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) led by Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar.'' Mr Ravi said since Mr Karunakaran was against the Congress party ''principles,'' it would not be possible for him to associate with the UPA, led by the Congress party.
However, in politics anything could happen as it had no limitations, he added.
Mr Ravi said he was worried about the present pathetic condition of Mr Karunakaran, once a powerful man in the Congress, appealing for other parties considerations.
Justifying the Congress party's invitation to DIC(K) leaders and workers in the party, he said they were basically Congress sympathisers and they would be given all protection and due position in the parent party, if they wished to come back.
Terming the DIC(K) as a ''melting candle'', the Congress leader said the tragic end of the party was the last example of using politics for the leaders personal interests.
