Left parties to back TRS in Munugode; Official announcement soon

TRS president and CM K Chandrashekar Rao had invited CPI leaders for discussing the prospects of a tie-up for the next Assembly elections

KHAMMAM: Putting an end to speculations both CPI and CPI-M are likely to forge an electoral alliance with Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in the next Assembly elections in Telangana beginning with the ensuing by-election to the Munugode Assembly seat. The two parties will announce their support for TRS in Munugode within the next two days.

It should be noted that there have been a series of interactions between the two and TRS leadership after Rajgopal Reddy, the incumbent legislator resigned from the Congress and also the Legislative Assembly.

TRS president and Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao had invited CPI leaders for discussing the prospects of a tie-up for the next Assembly elections. The CPI team included its state secretary Chada Venkat Reddy, Kunamneni Sambasiva Rao and Palla Venkat Reddy.

Sambasiva Rao told Deccan Chronicle that Chandrashekar Rao had expressed his eagerness to sail with the left parties.

“At one stage, he told us that CPI was his party and he would look after all its issues. He assured us a respectable position in the next elections”, he said.

Narayana Rao and Venkat Reddy have both represented the segment.

Providing one plus one security to CPI-M state secretary T Veerabhadram after the murder of T Krishnaiah gives ample indication of the importance given to the party by the CMO. According to reliable sources, the state government tried to influence the police to skip the name of T Koteswara Rao as A-1 in Krishnaiah’s murder case. It held back after the hue and cry that was raised by the public.

When asked about the alliance with TRS, Veerabhadram said “It is a fact that Chandrashekar Rao is keen on having an alliance with left parties. As of now, we have decided to back the TRS candidate in Munugode. We will officially announce the decision in a day or two. The Chief Minister has given enough indications that TRS will prefer to go with left and progressive parties in the coming elections”.
