The Kerala unit of BJP on Monday said the party was ready for an alliance with regional Christian party, Kerala Congress (M).

Last week, KC (M) chairman K M Mani had quit as state finance minister after the Kerala High Court ratified the decision to go for further probe against Mani in bar bribery case.

BJP state president, V Muraleedharan, told media in Kozhikode that although Mani is corrupt, the BJP doesn’t consider Kerala Congress (M) as party that should be kept away.

    Who will Mani side with: the UDF that has not yet declared that he is corrupt or the BJP which has already declared him to be corrupt?

    There are some winds which may burst the bubble of 'Secularism' in the country.It starts from state of Karnataka wherein BJP & Cristian are demonstrating against Congress Government and particularly against Siddharamaiya on the cause of Jayanti of Tipu.If the things as stated happens then Congress and Communists will have to run away to save their secular faces.

    Don't know whether to laugh or cry at this! The ruling party of the country is trying to woo a party headed by a doddering geriatric and that has influence in a handful of seats. Who said the minorities dont rule India!!

    So much talk about corruption. And now they want to side with a corrupt party? Shame on you BJP. Weren't you protesting in Thiruvanandapuram asking for Mani's resignation a few days ago? Was that all an act?
