By Super Admin

New Delhi, Mar 9 (ANI): The Communist Party of India- Marxist-Leninist (CPI-ML) on Monday announced its first list of 80 candidates for the Lok Sabha elections.

CPI-ML General Secretary Deepankar Bhattacharjee said the party has fielded over 60 percent of its candidates from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.

"We tried to give 33 percent of seats to women. We have fielded nine women and 20 Scheduled Castes candidates," he added.

The party has entered into a seat-sharing arrangement with CPM and CPI in Bihar.

However, the party will fight against the CPM-led governments in West Bengal and Kerala where it is fielding seven and two candidates respectively.

Bhattacharjee said the party's poll campaign was to target both United Progressive Alliance (UPA) and National Democratic Alliance (NDA). (ANI)
