Jammu, Mar 17 (UNI) Hinting at formation of the third front, CPI (M) secretary Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami today said there is every possibility of re-alignment in the forthcoming Jammu and Kashmir Assembly elections.
Addressing the mediapersons here this morning, the CPI (M) leader said, '' his party sees more transparency in the upcoming elections and those, who remained out of focus in 2002 elections, would be participating this time.'' Surely there would be a re-alignment of political forces in the 2008 polls. New entrants either in the form of groups or individuals, would come under one front to take part in electoral process,'' Mr Tarigami, an MLA from Kulgam told reporters.
''Political parties from the mainstream or separatists parties, are duty bound to lead the people of the State and our party will certainly encourage new contestants,'' he said, adding that the MLA assured that there would be no single ruling party in the State after Assembly elections.
Talking about Kashmir issue, Mr Tarigami said,'' The J&K State requires an autonomous voice. There is no readymade solution to solve the Kashmir problem,'' but at the same time hoped that resuming dialogue process with the present government in Pakistan will bring out solution.'' The MLA said it was a responsibility of any political groups representing the State to forward the peace process between India and Pakistan.
'' Though we have different ideology, opinions and agendas but parties can join one platform to resolve 60 years old issue,''he said while asserting that Common Minimum Programme (CMP) should be evolved to resolve issue between both the neighbouring countries.
Mr Tarigami has been re-elected as secretary CPI (M) for the second term at eighth CPI (M) State level Conference, held at Jammu from March 15 to 16.
