An alleged objectionable remark by LDF convener A Vijayaraghavan against a Dalit woman candidate of the opposition UDF has landed the left ruling front in a fix in Kerala, as the April 23 Lok Sabha polls are round the corner.

The senior leader had allegedly made the controversial remarks in connection with the recent meeting of Ramya Haridas, a Congress leader contesting from Alathur constituency, and IUML leader PK Kunhalikutty.

Ms Haridas on Tuesday lodged a complaint with the Alathur Deputy Superintendent of Police, alleging that the "offensive" comments amounted to outraging the modesty of women.
