CPI (M) to focus on scams, price rise

Price rise, scams, power cuts and unemployment will be the major issues the Communist Party of India (Marxist) will highlight during its election campaign while seeking support from the electorate for the AIADMK-led alliance, CPI (M) state secretary G. Ramakrishnan said on Tuesday.

Claiming that a change in government in Tamil Nadu was certain, Mr. Ramakrishnan told reporters here that the CPI (M) will go all out in all 234 Assembly constituencies for the victory of the AIADMK-led combine.

Announcing the names of the CPI (M) candidates for the 12 assembly constituencies in which the party is to contest under the AIADMK-led front, Mr. Ramakrishnan said that the party's all-India leaders Prakash Karat, Brinda Karat and Sitaram Yechury would embark on election campaigns in the first week of April in the State.

Ms. Karat would campaign in the State from April 1 to 4, Mr. Prakash Karat from April 5 to 7 and Sitaram Yechury from April 3 to 5.

All sectors suffered under the DMK regime in the last five years, he said. The law and order situation in the State had turned bad.

The agriculture sector was witnessing stagnation, leading to migration from the rural to urban areas.

Replying to a query on the MDMK's decision to boycott the polls, Mr. Ramakrishnan said that the CPI (M) had urged MDMK leader Vaiko to reconsider his party's stand.
