forge ties with any 'extremist outfits' in future. The stand
was made clear by CPI-M politburo member M K Pandhe
yesterday," Forest Minister Binoy Viswam told reporters here.
The CPI-M was slammed by opposition for "forging
tie-up" with Abdul Nassar Madani's PDP in the Lok Sabha polls.
The LDF had admitted to 'committing a mistake' by
forging ties with the PDP, which was accused of establishing
links with terror mastermind T Nazir in the past, the
minister, a CPI leader said.
