Kozhikode: The recent Indo-American naval exercises held off the Kerala coast should be seen as a warning to the CPI (M)-led government in Kerala as well as the State’s large Muslim population, M.G. Dawood Miakhan, general secretary of the Indian Union Muslim League, said here on Monday.

Mr. Miakhan, a critic of the new party leadership led by Union Minister of State for External Affairs E. Ahamed, alleged that such military exercises could not have taken place without the approval of the Ministry of External Affairs.
