ADILABAD: The Communist Party of India (CPI) will contest nine Zilla Parishad and 127 Mandal Parishad Territorial Constituencies in Adilabad district in the coming elections.

Though there are chances of seat adjustments with like-minded parties, the CPI would not concede the seats where it had considerable influence, said Gunda Mallesh, CPI State Secretariat member and former MLA from Asifabad.

He told reporters here on Friday that the party was open to alliances with like-minded parties.

However, any seat adjustment had to be thrashed out by party leaders at the State level rather than local level, he added.
