RSP denied Rajya Sabha seat

TPURAM: The Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP) in Kerala was denied Rajya Sabha seat by CPI (M), its powerful coalition ally in the ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF).

The decision not to take into account the demand of the much smaller RSP insisting on getting one of the two seats that the ruling LDF is sure of winning, was taken at the LDF meet held here Friday.

The CPI (M), which has been eyeing both seats, made it clear at the very outset that both seats were rightfully its.

The meet convened on Thursday to settle the dispute was indecisively dispersed.

The RSP State Secretary V P Ramakrishna Pillai who stepped out the meeting place did not respond to the questions of the media persons at first. But later he stressed his party would not go out of the Front.
