Kannur, Apr 22

 The BJP State President, Mr P S Sreedharan Pillai, today said that the outcome of the assembly elections cannot be predicted as both the LDF and UDF fronts were faced by “strong undercurrents” and due the uncertain political situation in Kerala. 

“As per the available indications, the UDF and a section of CPI-M had entered into tacit poll understanding and as such the state could witness possibility of cross voting in a few 
assembly segments,” he said. 

Accusing both the fronts for taking support of the ‘Muslim fundamentalist outfits’ in the assembly polls, he said “of late those minority sections seem to have been dictating and hijacking the poll agenda and Kerala would have to pay heavy price if the emerging situation continued in the state for long”. 

He alleged that “both the ruling and opposition fronts, instead of making efforts to politically enlighten the masses, in a way are trying to mislead them by openly taking the support of the 
fundamentalist forces, which unleash terror in parts of the state and support extremists across the country”.

The UDF and LDF should make their stand clear on the support they get from some of the fundamentalist outfits for the assembly polls in the state, he said. Describing as “unprecedented” the unanimous resolution passed by the Kerala Assembly to work for release of People’s Democratic Party leader Abdul Nassar Madani who is in a Coimbatore jail as an 
accused in the serial bomb blast case, Pillai asked Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and CPI-M state leadership to explain their stand clear on the sensitive issue. 

He said that his party was working hard to ensure that it opened its account in Kerala Assembly. In this elections the party would get an idea about its growing support base in the state. Mr Pillai said that the BJP president Rajnath Singh would address election meetings in Kanhangad, Kannur, Vatakara and Koilandi on April 25.
