Kerala Congress factions were being accommodated in the Left Front for wider acceptance and they were not natural ally of the Left, RSP national secretary T J Chandrachoodan said today.
Answering a question whether KC (Thomas), the splinter group from KC (Joseph) which quit the LDF, was given undue positions in the ruling Front, Chandrachoodan said whichever be the faction, Kerala Congress parties could not be considered as the natural allies of the Left Front.
"They are being accommodated for larger acceptance from different sections," he said addressing a meet-the-press programme here.
He said the RSP had always upheld value-based politics and would express their opinions freely while remaining in the Left Front.
On CPI leader K E Ismail's statement that the exit of Janta Dal led by M P Veerendrakumar had weakened the LDF, the RSP leader said "a family will naturally weaken if a member leaves. However others are coming in."
Chandrachoodan said no party was highlighting the historic importance of the coming local body polls in which 50 per cent of seats had been reserved for women for the first time in the country.
"The credit for this goes to the LDF and the people of Kerala. We have added one more achievement to the many firsts the state can boast of," he said.
He alleged that opposition UDF was trying to appease religious groups for votes and were not raising political issues in their campaign for local body polls.
