Thiruvananthapuram: Indian Union Muslim League, a partner in the Opposition Congress-led UDF in Kerala, today said it would not have any tie-up or seat adjustments with Jamaat-e-Islami for the coming local body and assembly polls.

'IUML is a party that opposes fascism, so we cannot have truck with Jamaat-E-Islami", Kunhalikutty told a meet-a-press programme organised by Kesari Memorial Journalists Trust here.

Reports on talks held between IUML and Jamaat-e-Islami for a possible tie-up had triggered a controversy with CPI-M-led LDF accusing the League of "tying to hide radical forces under its wings."

IUML used to have talks with Jamaat-e-Islami on matters regarding religious issues considering it as a religious organisation. "As Jamaat-e-Islami has decided to float a 'political party', we have decided to sever all types of relation with them. Henceforth, we will not consult with then even as a religious outift', he said.

On the LDF government's four-year rule, Kunhalikutty said it was the most ''inefficient government'' Kerala has witnessed.

'Cabinet is a confused group which cannot take a decision on any matter', Kunhalikutty said.
