KARIMNAGAR: CPI general secretary AB Bardhan has called upon the people to defeat both the UPA and NDA and support the third alternative at the Centre.

Addressing an impressive public meeting on the first day of the three-day CPI state conference here on Tuesday, Bardhan said youth and other sections of society should support the third alternative.

"Some regional parties are playing opportunistic politics in the country.

If they come on one platform and supported the Left, it would form the third alternative to keep both the UPA and the NDA away from power," Bardhan said.

The CPI state convention started on a colourful note in the city.

Though it was the 24th state conference, CPI organised the convention for the first time in Karimnagar.

Bardhan said both Congress and BJP governments were one and the same in corruption and pursuing anti-people policies.

Alleging that due to the Congress party's wrong policies regionalism came to the fore in the state, Bardhan recalled that once the CPI had fought for the Visaalandhra.

"Now, the CPI is supporting Telangana statehood demand in tune with the aspirations of the people of the region," he added.

"If the UPA government introduced the Telangana Bill in the Parliament, the CPI will support the same.

The Congress should act fast on the ssue," Bardhan said.

CPI cadre extended a rousing reception to Bardhan when he arrived at Karimnagar from Hyderabad.

CPI deputy general secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy, state secretary Narayana MP Azeez Pasha, CPI floor leader in the Assembly Gunda Mallesh were among those present.
