Kozhikode | Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala today dismissed reports on Indian Union Muslim League, a constituent of the ruling United Democratic Front, having vested interest in allocation of wards, keeping in mind the ensuing local body poll in the State.
Talking to newspersons here, the minister said, the UDF took the collective decision, as far as seat allocation was concerned.
Mr Chennithala said,  it was grossly unfair to isolate IUML on the issue, as it has not taken a separate view in distribution of seats.
Stating that the UDF was in favour of a time-bound schedule for election, the senior Congress leader said, decision on this issue will be taken after confabulation with the state Election Commission on August 24.
On the death of a girl student at CET College in Thiruvanthapuram during ‘Onam’ celebrations two days ago, Mr Chennithala said the probe related to the case is moving in the right direction.
The minister said the government would initiate stringent action against the wrong-doers, if they are found indulging in stock-piling of arms in campuses.
