There is a possibility of the Communist Party of India (Marxists) allying with the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam in the Lok Sabha elections next year, with the objective of forging an alternative front to the ones led by the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party, according to K. Balakrishnan, Member of the CPI (M) Central Committee.

Talking to newspersons here on Wednesday, Mr. Balakrishnan said that the CPI (M) might join hands with the AIADMK in order to prevent the Congress and the BJP from coming to power.

To a question whether the emergence of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as the second largest party in the Delhi Assembly elections would lead to the emergence of an alternative to the Congress and the BJP at the national level after the Lok Sabha elections, he said that was an indication of the people’s disenchantment with both the Congress and the BJP.

It was also an indication of the emergence of an alternative to the Congress and the BJP if an attempt is made by an alternative party or alliance to float the right issues.
