Kozhikode: The Janata Dal (U) might have its mind set on returning back to LDF. The move back might be as early as the end of 2017. CPI(M) general state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan welcomed the movement back to LDF. The conflicts between JDU & UDF have been on an increase and ever since LDF had secured seats in UDF & JDU dominant areas the conflicts only worsened. JDU leader Sheikh P Harris has said that they have had no benefits and suffered only losses after joining UDF. He also claims that the current congress party could not even compete with BJP on equal fronts within the state. The UDF are now attempting to salvage the association and the UDF leaders are working tirelessly for the same.
