Chandy dismisses reports of IUML being upset with UDF

Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Oommen Chandy Wednesday dismissed as 'media creation' reports that the Indian Union Muslim League, the second largest partner in the Congress led UDF government, was upset with the coalition over certain issues.

"It is all your (media) creation. There is nothing like that," he told reporters to a question in this regard during a cabinet briefing.

"The IUML ministers did not attend as there was meeting of their party in Kozhikode that day," the CM said when asked about the absence of IUML representatives in the function.
