New Delhi, May 15 (ANI): The Communist Party of India (Marxist) will decide its future course of action regarding formation of a government after election results are out on May 16.
Leaders of CPI (M) and its other allies are to meet after the election results are out.
“As far as CPM is concerned, our position, Left Front’s position and whatever parties who have adjustment with us, their position is absolutely clear. We will decide our future course of action,” said Brinda Karat, a senior leader, CPI (M).
The CPI (M) with the help of its allies is aiming to form a non- BJP and a non-Congress government
“AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa is coming here on May 18. We hope she will be with us. Because she fought elections on basis of non-BJP and non-Congress alliance,” said MK Pandeir, leader of CPI (M),
The CPI (M) was an ally of Congress-led government for more than four years before it decided to part ways due to signing of a civilian nuclear deal with US last year.
The Congress Party has already indicated it is willing to take support of like-minded parties. (ANI)
