Must read

The Communist Party of India (CPI) has revealed its intention to contest in two Lok Sabha segments and an additional 15 assembly constituencies in the upcoming elections in the state. This decision emerged from the party’s secretariat meeting held at Dasari Bhavan in Vijayawada on Tuesday. However, the definitive list of contested seats will be unveiled after the conclusion of discussions with the CPM and Congress party.
According to sources within the party, discussions have progressed through two rounds with both the CPM and the Congress party. The CPM, a fellow leftist party, has resolved to contest in two parliamentary and nine assembly constituencies. However, the CPI’s secretariat meeting emphasised the importance of avoiding seat conflicts with the CPM.
The CPI is contemplating contesting from the Kurnool Lok Sabha constituency, and for the second seat, it is considering options such as Vijayawada, Guntur, or Visakhapatnam. Additionally, the party is eager to vie for seats in Vijayawada West, Anantapur, Dhone, and Pathikonda.
Various other seats where the party holds sway were also deliberated upon. However, the final list of contested seats will be disclosed following successful negotiations with the CPM and the Congress party, according to the sources.
