Two prominent Left parties, the CPM and the CPI, discussed Lok Sabha poll strategy, electoral coordination and potential alliances on Tuesday but sidestepped possible allies in Andhra Pradesh on a day the Lok Sabha passed the Telangana Bill, given both are on different sides of the divide on the state’s bifurcation.
At a meeting attended by CPM leaders Prakash Karat, S Ramachandran Pillai and K Vardha Rajan, and CPI leaders S Sudhakar Reddy, A B Bardhan and D Raja, the parties discussed bringing together regional parties for a non-Congress, non-BJP alliance. “We discussed how to strengthen coordination and cement a non-Congress, non-BJP alliance. We discussed relations with parties like JD(U), JD(S) and AIADMK,” said D Raja.
According to sources, the two parties skirted the issue of Telanaga and alliances in Andhra Pradesh. While the CPI supported bifurcation, the CPM was opposed to it.
