Will improve unity: UDF allies; Will sort out problems: Sonia

KOTTAYAM: In their meeting with Sonia on Wednesday, UDF allies have made it clear that if the unity in the UDF is not improved, it is likely to face a major set-back. On the other hand no demand was made to change Chief minister Oomen Chandy’s leadership in the Front.   

It was the leaders of Muslim League, Kerala Congress and RSP who had met Sonia Gandhi at the Nattakam guest house on the sidelines of her Sivagiri mutt visit. Assuring them of steps to solve the problems among them, Sonia asked all the allies to move on with unity and cooperation.

The leaders apprised Sonia of State’s general political climate. The Muslim League leaders said the recent controversies had dented the image of the government. The main problems are within the Congress party. To this, Sonia said all issues would be solved.

Meanwhile, Kerala Congress (M) chairman K M Mani’s demanded proper representation for his party in the upcoming Assembly election. Kerala Congress (M) should get justice during seat sharing process. He squarely blamed the Congress for the UDF’s civic poll debacle. “Certain Congress leaders had made statements which had a repelling effect on minorities. This should not happen again,” Mani told the Congress chief. However he is not known to have made any complaint about two kinds of justice that were allegedly meted out to him and minister Babu in the bar bribery case. He also asked Sonia to speak out against the import of rubber in Parliament.

N K Premachandran MP said the RSP had requested Sonia to ensure unity in the UDF. “The Supreme Court order regarding bar case was a recognition for the State government. Moving forward with unity will make possible continuity in governance,” he informed Sonia.
