Chennai, Jan 3 (UNI) The CPI(M) in Tamil Nadu will make efforts to form a 'Third Front', sans the DMK and the AIADMK, party's secretary N Varadharajan said today.
Talking to reporters here, he hinted that the front would accommodate actor-turned-politician Vijayakanth's DMDK, the PMK and the Left parties.
He said Mr Vijayakanth was articulating people's problems and had been demanding early solution to issues concerning them.
''However, we do not know his stand on economic policies,'' he quipped.
Mr Varadharajan said like their party, the PMK founder S Ramadoss was also championing the cause of the commonman and had been organising various forms of agitations.
''We will observe the stance of the PMK and the DMDK on issues taken up by us and then decide on forging an alliance with them,'' he added.
Asserting that the Left parties were trying to build an alternate front in the state on the lines of their initiative at the Centre, Mr Varadharajan said the Left did not have any indefinite understanding with the ruling DMK.
To a question, he said the CPI(M) would not oppose Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's proposed visit to Sri Lanka on February 4 and said the ethnic issue should be resolved through political talks.
He said the National Conference of the CPI (M) would be held at Coimbatore from March 29 to April 3.
All important issues, national politics and the party's stand in the next Lok Sabha polls would be debated.
The meeting would also dwell on building a 'Third Front' at the national level. ''We will oppose both communalism and the economic policies of the United Progressive Alliance Government at the Centre in the parliamentary elections,'' Mr Varadharajan said.
