Brinda sees Cong, League, BJP alliance in Kerala assembly poll

CPI (M) Politburo member Brinda Karat on Tuesday said there was a clear evidence of an alliance between Congress, Indian Union Muslim League and Bharatiya Janata Party (Co-Li-B) for the May 16 assembly poll in the state.

Talking at a meet-the-press programme organized by the Calicut Press Club ahead of the poll, she said Kerala Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Oommen Chandy had a secret understanding with the Sangh Parivar on the issue.

Describing tribal leader C K Janu foraying in to NDA camp and fighting from Sulthan Bathery seat as unfortunate she said they are against the interests of tribal community in the country.

Calling the development as political opportunism, she said tribal community was against policies of the NDA and fighting them across the country. Under Modi regime, tribal people are being targeted, she said adding the CPI (M) was in the forefront to build a united movement for these sections of the people across the country.
