India Elections : Janata Dal-Secular walks out of Left alliance meeting in Kerala

Kerala’s ruling Left Democratic Front’s seat sharing woes continued on Thursday after an ally, Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S), walked out of a meeting for being denied Kozhikode seat.

As the meeting began, CPI-M (Communist Party of India-Marxist) state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan read out a statement that they will take the Kozhikode seat, to which we raised our strong objection. All the other allies were silent and we felt that there is no point in sitting in the meeting. Our future decision would now be taken when our party meets on March 22.
