Prakash Karat holds talks with Mayawati

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: Taking forward the process of putting together a formation as a national alternative to the coalitions led by the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party, Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Prakash Karat met U.P. Chief Minister Mayawati here on Sunday.

Mr. Karat had a luncheon meeting with Ms. Mayawati and held discussions. “We are trying to work out [an alternative] and are continuing our discussions,” the CPI(M) leader told The Hindu.

While refusing to disclose details of the discussions, Mr. Karat said any formal announcement would take time.

On Saturday, Mr. Karat and his colleagues had a meeting with Telugu Desam Party president N. Chandrababu Naidu.

The former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister later called on Ms. Mayawati.

Last week, he met the former Prime Minister and Janata Dal (Secular) chief H.D. Deve Gowda and Rashtriya Lok Dal president Ajit Singh.
