Cong, TRS talks still inconclusive

Written by: Staff

Hyderabad, June 17 (UNI) The ruling Congress failed to achieve a breakthrough with its allies the Telangana Rashtra Samiti(TRS) and the CPI on seat sharing even as the deadline for filing of nominations for the two-phase panchayat elections in Andhra Pradesh on June 28 and July 2, ended this evening.

Talking to reporters at the ''Gandhi Bhavan'', state Congress headquarters, Congress President K Keshava Rao, MP, maintained that ''both the Congress and TRS were together. ''Everything is fine. We will come out with the official list of candidates tomorrow'', he said.

Earlier, irked by the alleged ''non-cooperative'' attitude of the ruling Congress in some districts, CPI National Secretary S Sudhakar Reddy, after a round of talks with Mr Rao, said his partymen would not hesitate to contest those seats for which no understanding could be reached with the Congress.

Union Minister of State for Rural Development and senior TRS leader A Narendra, along with Mr Rao asserted that there would be no friendly contest for any of the ZPTC/MPTC seats, giving an impression that electoral understanding had been reached for the polls.

The Union Minister Narendra later told reporters that there had been differences at the district level over the number of seats. But they had been brought down to a few seats in a couple of districts.

''We will thrash it out and come out with the official list positively by tomorrow'', he said.
