VIJAYAWADA: The Communist Party of India (Marxist) has decided to contest five Assembly seats in the ensuing byelections.

They include Anantapur, Tirupati, Ongole, Payakaraopet and Polavaram, CPM state secretary BV Raghavulu has said.

Raghavulu who came to participate in a seminar in the city on Sunday, said the CPM would work with other Left parties, including the CPI, in the byelections.

But he ruled out any alliance with the parties other than the Left parties.

Welcoming Lok Satta Party president Jayaprakash Narayan’s keenness on working with the Left parties for people’s cause, Raghavulu said a decision would be taken in this regard after discussing the matter with the CPI.

The CPM leader said the Congress government launched the latest edition of Prajapatham programme keeping in view of the ensuing byelections in the state.

“The current phase of Prajapatham is not meant to solve people’s problems,” he said.

Raghavulu said the CPM activists would make Prajapatham a Prajaporatam by highlighting the ‘failures’ of the Congress government on various fronts.

The CPM activists would also grill the ruling Congress leaders and officials for their ‘failure’ to solve people’s problems, he said.

Later, speaking at a seminar on ‘Reforms in Power Sector - Burden on People’, Raghavulu said the state government imposed a financial bu rden of `4,480 crore on people by hiking the power tariff, which was unjustifiable.

Communist Party of India (Marxist) district secretary R Raghu, city secretary Ch Babu Rao, state committee member V Uma Maheswara Rao, Donepudi Kasinath and others attended the seminar.
