Communist Part of India-Marxist (CPI-M) polit bureau member B.V. Raghavulu has asked people to vote against the TDP and the Congress. The TDP-BJP combine and the Congress will pave way for privatisation of public sector companies, and communal tensions will flare up if the BJP comes to power, he said.
Mr. Raghavulu attended a rally organised by the party on Thursday. Meanwhile, CPI (M) candidates filed their nominations for all three Assembly constituencies in the city and the Vijayawada parliamentary constituency.
Addressing the gathering, he said the alliance with the BJP would become spell doom for the TDP. The BJP has ruined regional parties in Karnataka and Bihar by going for alliance with them. The TDP has done gross injustice to Telugus by forging alliance with the BJP, which was instrumental in dividing the State, he said.
CPI (M) Vijayawada Parliamentary constituency candidate V. Umamaheswara Rao, Vijayawada (West) candidate Boyi Satyababu, East candidate Donepudi Kasinath, central candidate Ch. Babu Rao, city secretariat member Muzzaffer Ahmed and D. Vishnuvardhan spoke.
