New Delhi: On the day the Left parties tied up with some major regional parties to launch the so-called third front, all was not well within the Left bloc in Kerala led by the Communist Party of India (Marxist), or CPM.
The Communist Party of India, or CPI, on Thursday said it is ready to go alone in all the 20 Lok Sabha seats in the state if the CPM doesn’t let it field a candidate of its choice from the Ponnani constituency in the state.
Another member of the state’s Left front, the Janata Dal (Secular), said no to the CPM’s proposal to swap the Kozhikode seat for Wayanad. The CPM has already finalized its candidate in Kozhikode for the Lok Sabha polls.
“We have not created any trouble. Four seats were marked for the CPI and we are not asking for anything,” said CPI national secretary D. Raja.
