It is reported that the Congress will release the final paper in two days.
Meanwhile, disunity among the opposition parties is reported to benefit the main rival BRS. The Left parties and the Congress had decided to form a formal alliance so as not to split the anti-incumbency votes. After many days of discussion on the seat division, the CPM Congress had given a deadline of 3 pm on Thursday to decide the final seat.
As there was no response from the Congress till Thursday afternoon, the CPM held a state-level meeting in the evening and announced fielding of candidates on 24 seats and announced 17 seats where Left party candidates would contest.
CPM Telangana State Secretary Tammineni Veerabhadra announced the candidates. Candidates have been declared in Aswaropet, Vaira, Palayer, Madhira, Janagaon, Pattancheru, Musheerabad, Mirialaguda, Nalgonda, Nakirekal, Bhuvanagiri, Husurnagar, Kodad, Janagam, Kothagudem and Ibrahimpatnam constituencies. In this, a discussion was held between Congress and CPM regarding the seats in Khammam district. Khammam district is one of the most emotional constituencies for Left parties.
CPM had demanded three seats. However, Congress promised to give two seats. Party state secretary Tammineni Veerabhadram alleged that despite the CPM’s agreement for two seats, the Congress is not finalizing the seats.
Earlier, there were similar problems in Madhya Pradesh too. The Samajwadi Party had made it clear that it was coming out of the alliance.
Meanwhile, as the elections were about to take place, former MP Vivek Venkitaswamy resigned from the party and joined the Congress due to a setback to the BJP in Telangana. Vivek is the chairman of BJP’s manifesto committee.
