Indian Union Muslim League, a long-time ally of the Congress, today felt that its nominee at the Centre, E Ahamed, should have been given cabinet rank during yesterday's reshuffle of the Union Ministry.
"Considering Ahamed's experience, seniority and competence he should have been considered for a cabinet rank," IUML state general secretary P K Kunhalikutty told reporters here.
He, however, said the party was not going to take it up with the UPA central leadership in the form of a grievance or demand.
"That is not the approach or tradition of the party," he said.
An ally of the Congress for decades, IUML is the second largest partner of the United Democratic Front (UDF) in Kerala.
Kunhalikutty accused the CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) Government of failure to control the rise in the prices of essential items.
Urging the Centre to immediately intervene in the matter, he also demanded that the Centre withdraw the power vested with oil companies to decide on the prices of petroleum products.
