    The party, however, dropped senior party leaders C Divakaran, Sathyan Mokeri, C N Chandran and Kamala Sadanandan from the national council.

    "I have no godfathers in the party and did not want to get a position in the council with someone's support," a dejected Divakaran said.

    Reddy said a Left secular front would be formed to fight the BJP. He said the Modi government was implementing economic policies which are looting the public.
