POLLACHI: In the post-poll scenario, the Left parties will realign with the Congress, All India vice-president of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Venkaiah Naidu said here on Sunday. There were enough indications now that the Communists “who are experts in alignment and realignment” would join hands with the Congress, he told presspersons.

On the poll plank of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) that the country required a non-Congress and non-BJP alternative Mr. Naidu said that for the “ill-effects and failures” of the Congress Government, the CPI (M) should also own equal responsibility because of having supported the United Progressive Alliance Government for four years.
