Candidates of major parties file papers as talks inclusive

Written by: Staff

Hyderabad, June 17 (UNI) With talks on seat-sharing inconclusive, candidates of Congress and TDP and their allies filed nomination papers today as the deadline for the two-phase of panchayat elections on June 28 and July two, ended this evening.

Talks between the UPA constituents, Congress and TRS remained inconclusive as the ruling party failed to reach an agreement with the CPI in 10 districts.

On the other hand, the TDP, which had decided to review its ties with the CPI(M) arrived at an understanding in Khammam and Nalgonda districts.

In keeping with TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu's direction to adopt a ''liberal'' attitude during seat sharing, the party's district level leaders were accomodating the CPI(M) to a great extent. A clear picture would emerge only after the last date for withdrawals on June 22, sources said.

Fielding candidates for 188 ZPTCs, the CPI(M) decided to clinch a deal in some areas and to go on its own where no agreement could be reached, CPI(M) sources said.

According to latest reports received by the SEC, over 7600 candidates had filed their nominations for 1097 ZPTC seats and more than 26,000 contestants for 16133 MPTC seats.
