The Congress and IUML held talks on Tuesday to end the stalemate over Ramesh Chennithala’s controversial remarks.

The IUML leaders themselves took the initiative for the talks, as tempers had frayed in the party over the snide remarks made by Ramesh, Electricity Minister Aryadan Mohammed and K Muraleedharan MLA.

Also, it was an attempt to reach a consensus between the prominent parties, ahead of the IUML’s crucial secretariat meet slated for Thursday. After the talks, Chandy said no one would be allowed to humiliate the UDF’s coalition partners.

“The Muslim League is an integral part of the UDF. The Congress will not resort to any act which would humiliate or hurt a coalition partner. We need to take things forward after convincing all concerned. It’s the UDF’s strength. And therefore the alliance won’t crumble”, he said.
