CPI and TJS should join Bahujan Left Front to contest Telangana polls: CPI(M)
CPI and TJS should rethink and come out of the proposed Congress-led grand alliance in Telangana to counter the ruling TRS for the December 7 assembly elections in Telangana and join Bahujan Left Front to contest the polls, the state unit of the CPI(M) said Wednesday.
Congress, TDP and CPI announced the formation of a pre poll grand alliance with Congress last month. Later, Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) led by M Kodandaram, and other smaller parties expressed interest in joining forces with the alliance, which is yet to be formalised.
The CPI(M) is contesting under the umbrella of the Bahujan Left Front (BLF). "There are no similarities between the policies of TJS and CPI and those of Congress and TDP. There is no point in TJS and CPI going along with the grand alliance. They should better rethink and come and join us," CPI(M) state secretary Tammineni Veerabhadram told reporters here Wednesday.
"We request CPI and Kodandaram sir to join us...we can work together for the progress of Telangana," he said.
