The Communist Party of India-Marxist CPI(M) has not ruled out the possibility of contesting coming elections with Communist Party of India (CPI). The party also asserted that it did not discuss the issue of alliance with YSR CP.

The CPI(M) organised birth centenary celebrations of Jyothi Basu, here on Wednesday.

On the occasion, CPI(M) state secretary B. V. Raghavulu said that his party felt that the communist parties should join hands in the present political scenario. The CPI also expressed similar views, he said, referring to reports in media. Both parties, however, had to discuss threadbare at national level, he observed.

The electoral alliances depended on the division of State. The politics and political equations change on division of the state.

The CPI (M), so, had not yet given thought to having an alliance with YSRCP as of now, he explained. Referring to discussion on Telangana Bill, the CPI(M) leader said that the political parties were unnecessarily making an issue out of nothing on Telangana Bill. They were creating confusion amongst the public by stalling the discussion.

Discussions and deliberations were necessary for a healthy democratic system. Even if there was no discussion, it would have to go to Parliament, he said, adding, “The Congress high command knew the inner feelings and thoughts of TDP leader N. Chandrababu Naidu, YSRCP leader Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy and TRS president K. Chandrasekhara Rao. Let the people know what they have in their mind by allowing discussion in the Assembly.”

CPI(M) State leaders Y.V. Rao and V. Umamhaeswara Rao, district secretary R. Raghu, city secretary Ch. Babu Rao, city secretariat member Donepudi Kasinath were also present.
