Former Kerala CM Chandy's Mani-festo: We no longer need the Manis

The carefully calibrated move by the Kerala Congress (Mani) and the CPM for a tactical alliance at the Kottayam district panchayat has become the latest subject to ridicule CPM by a slew of the fringe left groups and individuals in the social media.

Mr Mani had said that it was a 'regional adjustment, ' but the party had violated the agreement with the Congress. "A majority of the Kerala Congress support base can not be moved to the Left overnight or even in the long run for obvious reasons". "Do you think Kerala Congress would keep quit if we're insulted such?" There is no justification for the betrayal by Mani and hence there is no possibility of a truce with his party."Mani and his son have no moral authority to continue in the positions they have got under the UDF umbrella". It is better not to resort to provocation through words, said Mani.

"The decision to align with the CPM was taken at the local level".

The CPM has a lot of explaining to do when it changes its line in favor of Mani. Party veteran V S Achuthanandan and alliance partner CPI have already spoken out against any tie-up with Mani, whose suspected involvement in corruption scams was effectively raised by the LDF in a relentless campaign against the Chandy government.

Mani, while trying to appease his party rank and file through the press conference, howe ver, chose to attack the Congress leadership in Kottayam. It was the CPM which offered its support, they reason with critics of the switching of loyalty. "Our party workers are fed up of listening to their abuses and the pained party workers decided not to go ahead with supporting the Congress", Mani said.

Senior Congress leaders Oommen Chandy, Ramesh Chennithala and K.C. Joseph flayed what they called the "treachery" by Mani's party and said he could forget about returning to the UDF fold.

All representatives of both parties signed an agreement to stick to the original agreement and let the Congress enjoy the post of the district panchayat president for another year. As a result, Congress candidate Sunny Pambady lost. The decision was surprising even to the Kerala Congress leaders.

This was decided at the UDF parliamentary party meeting held at Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday.
