If the ruling AIADMK forms a third front for the forthcomiang Parliamentary elections, the CPM is likely to find a place in it, said K Balakrishnan MLA, member of the central committee of the CPM.

On Wednesday, he said the CPM had extended support to the AIADMK in the Yercaud Assembly elections and the same situation would continue even in the Parliamentary elections. The country certainly needed an alternative front to the Congress and the BJP; if the AIADMK took an initiative to form a third front, the CPM would opt for such a front, he added.

Balakrishnan also opined that the angry mood of the people of Delhi against both Congress and BJP had reflected on the emergence of the Aam Admi Party, which had registered a thumping victory on its debut. “This is an indication that people are on the look out for a good, alternative forces,” he pointed out.
