Hyderabad, Dec 12 (UNI) The Communist Party of India in Andhra Pradesh will hold its state conference in the temple town of Tirupati from December 19 to 23 to chalk out a strategy to realise a third alternative to the ruling Congress and the Opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP).
To be inaugurated by CPI General Secretary A B Bardhan on December 19, the conference would review the political situation at the national level and the various activities undertaken by the party in the last one year, State CPI Secretary K Narayana told a press conference here.
The conference would explore means to step up the stir for land and protest against price rise, he said warning the state government that the CPI activists would resort to direct action by ''taking law unto their hands'' and occupy government lands encroached by influential people and raid traders' godowns to unearth foodgrains.
Claiming that people were fed up with both the Congress and the TDP, he opined that people were aspiring for a third alternative.
While talks were on with like-minded parties to project a third alternative, he, however, felt that mobilisation of caste groups as done by Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Supremo Mayawati in Uttar Pradesh would not be feasible in Andhra Pradesh.
CPI National Leader D Raja, MP, would address a huge public meeting on the concluding day of the conference, he added.
