LDF, UDF promote communal forces: Krishnadas
Thiruvananthapuram: BJP Kerala unit president P K Krishnadas Monday alleged that both the Left Democratic Front (LDF) and the United Democratic Front (UDF) governments were encouraging communal forces to garner votes in the state.
Addressing meet-the-press programme, ''Janavidhi 2009'', organised by the Kesari Memorial Journalists' Trust here, he alleged that while the LDF was promoting the PDP, founded by Abdul Nazir Maudhany, the Congress had made adjustments with the National Development Front (NDF), two fundamental organisations for votes in the coming Lok Sabha elections in the state.
Promoting such organisations just for a few votes would be a real threat to the country's security, he said.
Expressing confidence that the BJP-led NDA would assume power after the elections, he said date of the UPA at the Centre and the LDF in Kerala had almost ''expired.'' Claiming that after the elections people would see a split in these two Fronts, Mr Krishnadas said the Congress-led UPA had already collapsed as many of its leading partners had left and decided to face the elections alone or with other partners.
On the BJP's future, he said except the Biju Janata Dal (BJD), no other partners had left the party and claimed that many other political parties in both south and north had expressed their willingness to associate with it.
He claimed that the voting percentage of the BJP was increasing after each elections in the state.
Though the party had no electoral alliance in the state, a third alternative would emerge after the elections, he said.
