Kozhikode: Congress state unit on Saturday alleged that the BJP had entered into an `unholy alliance` with the CPI(M) during the previous Assembly Elections.

Speaking to reporters here, KPCC general secretary N Subramanian alleged that the BJP, under leadership of state unit president V Muraleedharan, had entered into an unholy alliance with the CPI(M) in the Assembly Elections.

He also said Muraleedharan was adopting a stand different to the central leadership in the Suryanelli sex scandal case, over which Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman PJ Kurien is facing the heat, because of the `understanding` with CPI(M).

Earlier, the leadership`s stand was favour of Kurien while the state unit demanded Kurien step down from the post. But the former had fallen in line with the state BJP`s demand, he said.
