The CPI on Saturday ruled out supporting a Congress-led government, saying it will sit in opposition if the people's mandate was not for forming a non-BJP, non-Congress government at the Centre.
"We are not with Congress party either at the end of the day or at beginning of the day...If the mandate is not for us to form a non-BJP non-Congress government, alright, then we will sit in the opposition," Raja told reporters here.
The senior CPI leader, however, said it will not allow BJP to take any advantage of emerging situation.
"I don't forsee BJP anywhere. Left will not allow it to take advantage of emerging situation," Raja said when asked will Left allow BJP to form a government at the Centre.
On the Left's performance in Kerala, the CPI leader said there were certain "adverse factors" in the southern state and "we need to analyse in the coming days".
CPI leader said that the Left has done a lot of good things in Kerala and West Bengal and they will continue to have the support of the people of these states.
"We went to people asking for their mandate for a non-Congress, non-BJP government and we think people appreciated our political understanding," he said.
