Cabinet rejig: Smaller allies of UDF feel left-out

Thiruvananthapuram: The smaller allies of the United Democratic Front (UDF) have expressed their disappointment over not being included in the discussions taking place in the Front over the Cabinet reshuffle.

Pillai and Jacob factions of the Kerala Congress, CMP and JSS on Tuesday came out in protest of the Congress leadership and said they would express their protest in the matter before the leadership of the Front.

“We get to know of the developments of the discussions from the media. That is not the ideal way of treating the allies,” said the leaders of the parties.

Kerala Congress (B) supremo R Balakrishna Pillai said the UDF was treating the smaller allies like second-class citizens. “It is disappointing that the UDF is ignoring a person like me as I am one of the founders of the Front,” said Pillai adding the UDF has almost been cut down to two or three parties.

The heads of the allies alleged that the Chief Minister met only the leaders of Muslim League and Kerala Congress (M) after returning from Delhi and expressed their disappointment over it.
