CPI General Secretary AB Bardhan on Wednesday said a secular democratic front at the Centre could not be formed avoiding the Communists.

Addressing a "meet-the-leader programme" organised by the Thrissur Press Club here, he claimed the Left front was in a position to win about 60 Lok Sabha seats in the ongoing elections as against the 43 it held in the dissolved house.

In Kerala also, the LDF would considerably improve its position, he added.

Bardhan said the BJP-led NDA was smelling defeat in the elections and would not be able to improve its position in the Hindi heartland.
