Communists, Congress in an informal alliance, says Advani

By Super Admin

Dehradun/New Delhi/Siliguri, Mar 9 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate L. K. Advani has said that the Communists and the Congress party are in an informal alliance.

"I have come to tell you to identify the ties of Communist parties and the Congress. It is a different matter when they will meet formally or not, but they have an unwritten understanding," Advani said at a public rally here on Sunday.

Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said in New Delhi that the BJP would go it all alone in Orissa.

"The BJP is deeply saddened by the unilateral termination of 11-year old relationship by the BJD with the BJP. The people of Orissa today feel betrayed because they have trusted this alliance for the last 11 years, which was anti-Congress alliance," he said.

Orissa will hold a two-phase poll on April 16 and April 23 simultaneously for the 21 parliamentary seats and the 147 state assembly seats.

Meanwhile, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) General Secretary and former Lok Sabha Speaker PA Sangma explored a tie-up with Gorkha groups in West Bengal.

"Well we might have a common strategy between NCP with the Kamtapur Progressive Party and the Gorkha Jana Mukti Morcha. This is under discussion," Sangma said in Siliguri. (ANI)
