Palakkad: CPI-M has decided to collaborate with other secular groups and democratic institutions to set up a new outfit as part of its policies against religion-based organizations.
Talking to reporters here on Thursday, CPI-M Politburo member Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said that the ongoing state party plenum has accepted a resolution to strengthen the secular front against organizations like Jamaat-e-Islami, Popular Front and SDPI that spread fundamentalism in the pretext of defending RSS.
"The UDF has weakened. That has widened the LDF’s possibility to expand its popularity," said Balakrishnan.
The Marxist leader, however, denied any efforts from his party’s side to topple the UDF government.
"The allies in the UDF are unsatisfied. The people are also fed up with the anti-people policies of the government," he added.
Balakrishnan informed that the Cliff House siege, which the CPI-M planned demanding resignation of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, would happen as planned.
