The CPI in Kerala today said the party was not averse to joining hands with the Congress to take on the BJP.
CPI state secretary Kannam Rajendran, however, said the stand on an electoral alliance would be clear only after its 23rd party congress next year.
However, fighting elections is based on coalition politics and a decision on that could be arrived only after discussions, Rajendran said.
Attacking the BJP government at the Centre over implementation of the GST, Rajendran said the slogan of 'One tax-One nation' has caused suffering to the people.
"Similarly, they are unilaterally trying to impose ideas such as 'one language-one nation', 'one election-one nation', and 'one nation-one religion," he alleged.
Shah had said, "Love jihad is a dangerous trend. The Kerala government has not taken effective steps to check it. The Supreme Court has already passed an order on it and the NIA is investigating it."
Asked whether the Kerala Congress (M), led by former state minister K M Mani, would be invited to join the LDF, the CPI leader said no such discussion were underway.
He also rejected any possibility of accepting Bharat Dharma Jana Sena (BDJS), floated by Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam, into the LDF fold, if it came out of the NDA.
