New Delhi, Nov 28 (UNI) The Mumbai attacks, Assembly polls and the impact of global meltdown on Indian economy among others will dominate proceedings of the CPI(M) Polit Bureau meeting beginning here tomorrow.

The two-day meet will also deliberate on the latest revelations pertaining to 'Hindutva' terror.

Party leaders told UNI that the matter regarding political alliances in the states, particularly in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh will also be taken up.

A party functionary said the party alliance with AIADMK in Tamil Nadu and the TDP in Andhra Pradesh is almost certain to be endorsed.

Now only a formal announcement is to be made.

Senior CPI(M) leader Rupchand Pal said besides discussing the current eco-political situation, the issue of Mumbai attacks will also figure.

The party has asked the government and the security agencies to uncover the full scope of the nefarious attacks and the forces behind it. The CPI has outrightly demanded the resignation of Home Minister Shivraj Patil for his department's failure to get prior information about the most horrific terrorist attacks in Mumbai which claimed more than 100 lives.

The party top leadership will also elaborate on the economic measures taken by the Manmohan Singh government to meet the situation in the backdrop of the global financial crisis.

The Left party is of the firm opinion that this financial crisis, leading towards depression, can be redeemed only with massive doses of public investment that will create employment opportunities, facilitate future security apart from boosting domestic demands.

The party will find ways and means as to how to pressurise the Congress-led coalition to urgently start a massive public works programme through substantial government investment.

It will deliberate on party approach towards Assembly polls and the strategy to increase its base outside West Bengal, Kerala and Tripura. The party has also increased its area of influence in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh because of its sustained agitation on people's issues like water, roads, electricity.
