TJS confident over seat adjustments among 'grand alliance' for Telangana polls


Confusion over seat adjustment will be resolved soon: TJS chief Hyderabad, Nov 19 (PTI):

Telangana Jana Samiti (TJS), a partner in the "grand alliance" for the December 7 Assembly elections in Telangana, Monday expressed confidence the confusion over seat adjustments among the allies will be resolved soon. The "grand alliance" comprises the Congress, TDP, CPI and TJS. The confusion arose with parties giving tickets to candidates in constituencies allocated to their alliance partners.

"About seats, it will happen. If not today, it will happen tomorrow. I don't think it is a major problem. I am confident that we will be able to resolve that by tomorrow," TJS president M Kodandaram said in a 'Meet the Press' organised by Telangana State Union of Working Journalists (TUWJ).

He was asked about the confusion with regard to seat adjustment among the alliance partners through Monday is the last day for filing nominations and the lack of clarity about the proposed common agenda. Observing that firming up the alliance and reaching out to people with a common agenda has been delayed, which has hurt the coalition, he said the remaining 15 days leading up to the polling date (December seven) should be used for the purpose.

The common agenda has been prepared, he said. When it was pointed out that any "friendly contests" among the alliance partners might hurt winning chances of their candidates, he said efforts to avoid such contests would continue. "We have to avoid them (friendly contests). One or two may be unavoidable but they should go. Those efforts will continue," he said. Replying to a query, Kodandaram said he is not working for becoming deputy chief minister (in the event of the alliance coming to power) or any other post. Hitting out at the "autocratic" rule of TRS, he said the TJS and its alliance parties are seeking a "democratic the rule" in Telangana.
