New Delhi, Jul 19 (UNI) The two-day meeting of the CPM Central Committee (CC) began here this morning to discuss the entire gamut of political developments following the Left withdrawal of support to the Manmohan Singh government and its resolve to defeat the July 22 trust vote in the Lok Sabha.

''We are discussing the emerging political scenario especially our role to garner support of all those democratic forces for the purpose,'' CPM polit bureau member Sitaram Yechury told newspersons.

Mr Yechury said the Left Parties had decided to oppose the deal in the larger national interest and that they will vote against the trust motion on the crucial day.

The CC meeting, preceded by Party PB meeting, is being attended by three Chief Ministers of the Left-ruled states-- West Bengal, Kerala and Tripura among others.

The 85-member CC is the Party's highest decision-making body between the two congresses, which is held after every three years.

Party General Secretary Prakash Karat is understood to have briefed the CC members about the circumstances under which the Left withdrew support to the 50-month-old UPA government, the subsequent discussion with various parties and the emerging political scenario.

He is believed to have emphasised that the political coordination with the BSP is the need of the hour.

He also explained that the Left parties have aligned with the BSP, TRS and the TDP to make it impossible for the government to execute the deal.

TDP president Chandrababu Naidu also called on Mr Karat this afternoon and is understood to have finalised the issues to be raised during the debate in the House.
