Kozhikode//Malappuram: BJP leader Shoba Surendran invited Muslim League for alignment with NDA. If League were to accept nationalism and stand alongside NDA,   their  alliance for polls would find acceptance, she said. A retrospect would prove beneficial to both League leadership and the community, said Shoba in an interview with Mathrubhumi.

Meanwhile, state president K Surendran is more open about BJP’s horse-trading plans in Kerala too. BJP would need just 35 - 40 seats to come to power in state, , he said. Surendran’s number game hints at Puthucherry operation, where BJP seized power after poaching Congress MLAs of Narayanaswamy govt.

In 140-seat Kerala Assembly 71 marks mandated majority.
