KOZHIKODE:Adding speculations to the entry of JD(U) to LDF fold, its state president M P Veerendra Kumar on Sunday met Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan here. However, both leaders maintained that politics was not discussed at the meeting held at the PWD Guest House here.

However, he added that he would participate at the meeting against ‘Communal Fascism’ organised by CPM here on Monday.

 ‘’It is as part of the party’s stand to make use of all platforms to oppose the communal agenda of the Sangh Parivar in the country,’’ he said. V S Achuthanandan was in Kozhikode after attending the marriage of Tribal Affairs Minister P K Jayalakshmi in Wayanad.

 Veerendra Kumar had recently hit out against the UDF for not giving ‘due consideration’ to it and mentioned about some ‘bitter  experiences’ as the coalition partner. Subsequently,  Chief Minister Oommen Chandy met Veerendra Kumar and assured him that all issues raised by him would be resolved soon. The JD(U) would also participate in the regional rallies in North Kerala and bring to the notice of the people, UDF’s achievements.

However, JD(U) leaders made it clear that they would only take a step as per the decision of national leadership.
