Idukki: Amidst the news that Kerala Congress (Mani faction) is planning to join LDF, CPI State Secretary Kanam Rajendran said that Kerala Congress (M) need not be included in the LDF in the present situation.

"The party of a person who is involved in solar scam case need not be taken to the LDF. The present situation does not warrant inviting Mani faction to the LDF," he said.
