Hyderabad, Sep 1: Now its CPI-M's turn to woo the actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi! The party's state committee which is meeting on September 3 will discuss about forging an alliance with other parties for the upcoming elections, including with that of Chiru's Prajarajyam. The CPI-M is eyeing the matinee idol's strong and loyal fan base in Andhra Pradesh.
CPI(M) politburo member Sitaram Yechury said that the party's state unit would discuss the possible tie up with the Telegu megastar's newly launched political party 'Prajarajyam', when they meet on September 3. "Our state committee is meeting on September 3. They will discuss the issue and decide," he said to media at Rajahmundry in East Godavari district.
This is much against to the claims of TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu that he had reached a deal with the Left parties at national level for electoral tie-up ahead of the 2009 general elections.
The CPI(M) allied with Congress for the last Assembly elections in 2004 but moved away from the ruling party.
With regard to third front, being floated at national level, in which TDP is a main player, Yechuri said that the third front at the national level will play an active role only in highlighting people"s problems.
He said the Third Front formed with secular forces and the Left parties will go to the people with issues such as secularism, the Indo-US nuclear deal, rise in price of essentials commodities affecting common man and various problems faced in the agriculture sector, including farmers" suicides.
