Thiruvananthapuram, July 4 (IANS) The Kerala Congress-J, part of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) in New Delhi and of the Left Democratic Front (LDF) in Kerala, has decided to go with the Left if it withdraws support to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s government. The Kerala Congress-J has two MPs in the Lok Sabha - P.C. Thomas and K. Francis George. However, only George can vote in case there is a no-confidence motion against the UPA government because of an election case pending against Thomas.

“Our party is part of the Left Democratic Front alliance here in Kerala and due to that we will toe the line of the Left. If they decide to withdraw support to the UPA government, my party also will do the same,” party chairperson P.J. Joseph told IANS.
