NEW DELHI: CPI (M) leader Prakash Karat Thursday said the big win for Left Democratic Front (LDF) in Kerala was due to the people of the state having rejected the corrupt United Democratic Front government.
"LDF has registered a big victory in Kerala because the people have endorsed a platform for a corruption-free government. The people have rejected the UDF government, its misrule and corruption," the former CPI (M) General Secretary said.
Karat said the party's Kerala unit is likely to meet tomorrow and hold discussions on who will be the next chief minister of the state.
Party veteran V S Achuthanandan and politburo member Pinarayi Vijayan, both of whom have won, are in the race for the CM's post.
