CPI’s aggressive stand, some UDF leaders’ attempt to bring Jose back deepen muddle
Meanwhile, Jose faction is learnt to have been asked to declare its political stance clear to proceed with the induction in the LDF, which forced Jose to expedite his decision.
Countering Kanam’s remarks, CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan chose to remind him that just because a party or faction has lost an election, it cannot be termed as one without a mass base.
Confusion prevails among the rank and file of the faction over the next move of its leadership; Jose likely to forge region-wise partnership
The move is in view of uncertainty that prevails in the rank and file over Jose’s political stance after the UDF’s decision.
The recent political development shows that the UDF has lost its organisational unity and this would hasten its total destruction, said CPM state chief Kodiyeri Balakrishnan
The Congress sought to strike a truce with the Jose K Mani group which was ousted yesterday over the tussle on the Kottayam district panchayat chief post.
Understandably on a solid wicket, the ruling Left front is not very excited about bringing in the Jose K Mani faction to the Left and has adopted a wait--and-watch policy.
Jose is moving out of UDF not as a party, but a faction | He is unlikely to align with any front for now, say group’s leaders
The PAC meeting also decided to inform the UDF and AICC leadership of their decision.
