Kerala Congress (M) faction decides to walk out of UDF
The Kerala Congress (M) faction headed by Jose K Mani on Wednesday announced its decision to severe its decades old ties with the Congress-led UDF and work alongside ruling CPI(M)-led LDF in the state.
Party leader Jose K Mani also said he would quit his Rajya Sabha membership, won with the support of the UDF.
Announcing his faction's political position at a press conference, Jose expressed hope that the LDF leadership will take a decision on his party's entry into the ruling front.
Kerala Congress is predominantly a Christian party with strong base in central Travancore and the LDF is eyeing minority votes with the new alignment.
