Telangana elections: CPI to announce candidates for three assembly segments

The CPI on Tuesday said it would announce candidates for three assembly segments, as it softened stance on its share of seats in the "grand alliance" for the upcoming assembly elections in Telangana. The names of candidates from Husnabad, Wyra and Bellampalli would be announced on Wednesday, CPI state secretary Chada Venkat Reddy told reporters in Hyderabad.

The "grand alliance" comprises the Congress, TDP, CPI and Telangana Jana Samiti (TJS).

Expressing dissatisfaction over Congress "unilaterally" announcing that CPI would get three seats, the Left party had earlier said it would field candidates from five assembly segments. The party had also named the five seats.

Chada Venkat Reddy on Tuesday said his party is seeking a constituency in Nalgonda district, in addition to the three.

A CPI statement later alleged that Congress has delayed seat sharing with protracted consultations. The delay would only hurt the "grand alliance", it said. It wanted the Congress to complete seat sharing soon.

The statement said Chada Venkat Reddy would contest the elections and that Palla Venkat Reddy would function as in charge secretary.

Chada Venkat Reddy is most likely to contest from Husnabad.

Telangana goes to polls on December 7 and the votes will be counted on December 11.
