Kasargod (Ker): Discounting the chances of the BJP forming the government at the Centre, senior Congress leader and Defence Minister A K Antony today asked the Left led by CPI-M to prove their commitment to secularism and national unity by supporting the Congress after the elections.
"If the CPI-M is sincere in their pronounced aim to keep the communal forces at bay, they will have to co-operate with a front under Congress leadership. If they are ready toco-operate, we will accept it," he said.
Claiming that it would be impossible for BJP to form a government at the Centre, he said the Congress-led UPA would try to form a secular government after the elections.
To keep the communal forces at bay from coming to power at the Centre, the Congress would accept cooperation from all secular parties, he said.
