THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Democratic Indira Congress (Karunakaran) president, K. Muraleedharan, today asserted the ties between his party and the LDF had got popular recognition going by the results of the local bodies elections.

Participating in a meet-the-press programme organised by the Thiruvananthapuram Press Club, Mr. Muraleedharan said that the LDF and the DIC(K) would take forward this relationship. In reply to a question he said that he did not propose to take the DIC(K) back to the Congress. When asked whether he would return to the UDF, he said he did not propose to do that either.

In reply to a question, he said that the LDF-DIC(K) alliance had thwarted the BJP's attempts to make electoral gains. He said that the DIC(K) had been able to establish its presence in more than 1000 wards. His party's executive would hold it's meeting on October 5 to review the election results.

With regard to sharing of power in the local bodies, the regional leadership of his party had been authorised to discuss the matter with the LDF and take a suitable decision.
