Estranged ally of ruling LDF in Kerala, JDS, on Saturday said it would decide the future course of action on its ties with the CPI(M)-led Front at its July 12 State Council meeting.
"JD(S), which was denied its traditional Lok Sabha seat of Kozhikode, is in the process of evaluating the post-poll situation and a final decision would be taken at the State Council meeting in Kozhikode," party state unit President M P Veerendrakumar told reporters in Kannur.
The decision would be taken after 'codifying' resolutions adopted at the party's ongoing district council meetings and also at the National Executive meet to be held in New Delhi on July 4, he said.
The JD(S) at a meeting attended by three of its five MLAs recently had resolved to seek the Speaker's permission to sit as a separate bloc in the State Assembly.
Criticising CPI-M State Secretary Pinarayi Vijayan for not taking the LDF allies into confidence on forging pre-poll alliance, Veerendrakumar said the ruling Front had lost its cohesion with CPI and RSP expressing dissent over the moves.
Meanwhile, strains in the LDF over the approach towards JD(S) have come to the fore with RSP and CPI resenting the lead partner CPI-M's plan to accommodate the JD(S) group.
The state committee meeting of the LDF, scheduled to be held on Thursday, was postponed after the RSP and CPI foiled the CPIM's "unilateral" move.
