Inaugurating his party's district convention and later talking to the reporters here, Mr. Pillai said, "What is the point in saying that the CPI(M)-Congress alliance is possible "beyond the tunnels at Aryankavu and Palakkad, but not possible here."
Asserting that the prolonged delay in settling the disputes in the Congress was costing the UDF dear, Mr Pillai said, "Now the Congress high command has said that it would settle the issue by December 1 after the elections in different States. After that the counting is to be held on December 4, and then the new Chief Ministers have to be decided. So there can be further delays in resolving the issue. But if the resolution gets delayed inordinately we will go our own way."
Mr. Pillai, who claimed to be one of the architects of the UDF, said the crisis in the UDF was unprecedented in its history. Mr. Pillai said the situation had come to such a pass where only the party President, Sonia Gandhi, would be able to do something.
