Malappuram, Mar 15: A recent and alleged-secret meeting of the leaders of the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) and the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) at a hotel in Kondotty near here had sparked off a political controversy, causing a set back and embarrassment for the United Democratic Front (UDF).
The SDPI is the political arm of the radical Muslim outfit of Popular Front of India. The CCTV visuals of the meeting between the top leadership of the parties have been out in the social media, sparking off a war of words between the UDF leaders and the Left Democratic Front (LDF).
Considered political opponents, the meeting of league leader E T Muhammad Basheer and UDF Convenor Benny Behannan with the SDPI State President Abdul Majeed Faisi and Popular Front of India State President Nasarudeen Elamaram has been considered as politically unethical.
