Apparently embarrassed by a LeT terror suspect's alleged links with Abdul Naseer Madani-led PDP, Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan on Wednesday said the CPI(M), which had "cooperation" with it in Lok Sabha polls, will not have any truck with such outfits in future.

"CPI(M) has come to the conclusion during its post Lok Sabha review meeting that the co-operation it had with PDP should have been avoided," he told reporters in Thiruvananthapuram.

Achuthanandan said his party was of the view that it should not have any ties with outfits like PDP in future.

"I am giving my opinion on the matter," he said when pointed out that CPI-M State Secretary Pinarayi Vijayan had not ruled out completely any ties with PDP in future.

CPI(M) has come under attack from Congress-led UDF and BJP, for its electoral adjustments with PDP in the polls, following the arrest of LeT terror suspect T Nazir, who hailed from Kannur in Kerala and has alleged links with PDP.

Nazir was arrested along with his associate by the Bangladeshi Rifles and handed over to Indian security agencies recently. He is being questioned by police in Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka in connection with different terror-related cases, including the 2008 Bangalore bomb blast that claimed one life and injured several others.
