No truck with TDP: Left

Special Correspondent

Blame local leaders of the Congress for failure of alliance talks

HYDERABAD: The Left parties -- the Communist Party of India and the Communist Party of India (Marxist) -- have refuted reports that they had entered into an understanding with the Telugu Desam Party for the civic elections.

They said they were going to the polls in alliance with the Congress in such areas where a broad-based understanding had been reached between them. But, they were contesting on their own strength in municipalities where the talks with the Congress had failed.

At separate press conferences, the CPI (M) State secretary, B.V. Raghavulu and the CPI State secretary, K. Narayana, said that the parties would take a stand on the election of the chairpersons, mayors and deputy mayors after the results of the elections were announced.

Mr. Raghavulu said while his party would abide by the understanding in the areas where it was reached, it would not be in any obligation to vote in favour of the Congress in areas where it was contesting on its own. His party was contesting 144 seats in alliance with the Congress and 147 on its own. Mr. Narayana said in all, the CPI fielded candidates in 247 wards and divisions of 77 municipalities and 11 corporations of which, the party entered into an understanding with the Congress in 133.
