New Delhi, Sep 5 (ANI): The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) politburo on Saturday discussed possible strategies for the forthcoming assembly elections in three states at the two-day meet being held in the national capital.

Senior leader and politburo member of CPI-M Sitaram Yechury after the first day of the meet said: "The Politburo meeting began this morning. We are discussing the current political situation in the country. We are discussing the forthcoming elections for the state assemblies that are going to be held in Maharashtra, Haryana and Arunachal Pradesh."

"We will also be discussing on how to conduct a rectification campaign which was a decision taken by our last party congress in which we said we will take up the matter after the general elections," Yechuri added.

Earlier, the Election Commission had declared October 13 as the date to conduct polls for the legislative assemblies of Maharashtra, Haryana and Arunachal Pradesh.

It may be recalled that the party had managed just four seats in Kerala and nine in West Bengal, the two main hubs of the party, during the 2009 Lok Sabha Polls, following which the party has decided to prepare a 'rectification document' after its poor performance in the 2009 elections to the Lok Sabha.
