KOZHIKODE: The recent developments in the CPI have confirmed that the ‘cash for  seat’ allegations levelled against the LDF during the Lok Sabha polls were true, Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala has said.

Speaking to mediapersons here on Monday, the minister termed the incidents as ‘unfortunate and unexpected’. The people of the state never expected such actions from the communist parties, he said.

Reacting to the indirect invitation extended by BJP mouthpiece ‘Janmabhumi’ to Kerala Congress leader K M Mani, Chennithala ruled out the possibility of Mani joining the Sangh Parivar fold.

He said Mani was an inevitable part of the United Democratic Front. Terming the NDA’s efforts to woo the Kerala Congress leader as a dream, Chennithala added that the BJP wouldn’t be able to open its account in the state in the coming Assembly elections.

He also stated that the BJP had no relevance in the political scenario in the state.

Clarifying that his stand on the Plus-Two seats row was the same as that of the Chief Minister, the Home Minister said a comprehensive probe would be announced if a genuine complaint as submitted.
