Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Monday urged the people to reject the Left Democratic Front in Kerala as it was following the path of confrontation and the BJP which was spreading the poison of communal divide.

Winding up the second leg of her campaigning for the Assembly elections here this evening, she said the Congress led United Democratic Front's victory was imperative to sustain the momentum of growth in Kerala.

Hitting out at the political opponents, Sonia Gandhi said the LDF had a negative agenda and believed in the path of confrontation.

"They speak one thing when in power and quite another language when in opposition," she said.

She said people should reject parties like the BJP which "spread poison" among the people to create communal divide. "They are undertaking yatras from time to time. They should not forget the pain caused by the earlier yatras to the common man," she added.

Democratic Indira Congress (Karunakaran) President K Muraleedharan said it was a special moment for him to share the dias with Ms Sonia Gandhi.

He said the UDF would go united and there would not be any scope for a split after the elections.
