Talking to reporters here today, party state secretary Jagrup Singh said that although CPI had contested last assembly election in the state jointly with the Congress, in view of several policy based differences and approach the party would not have any truck with the ruling party for the next elections due to be held in the state by February next year.

He said that this consensus was emerged at the party state council meeting in Chandigarh on April 10 and 11 last.

He said that both Congress and the opposition SAD=BJP combine are indulging in anti- people approach and are busy in issueless power oriented politics.

Mr Singh said that the state council of the party also decided to intensify the ongoing struggle for the cause of farmers, labourers and other toiling masses of the state.

The state council had also decided to continue ongoing agitation in protest against the pro WTO and pro privatisation policies of the government.
