CPI Serves Ultimatum To Congress On Seat Allocation

The party told the Congress that it would exit the alliance if its demand of five Assembly constituencies in the seat-sharing was not conceded.
Hyderabad | 4th November 2018
One of the grand alliance partners, the CPI (Communist Party of India), reportedly issued an ultimatum to the Congress on Sunday over the issue of allocation of seats.

The party told its ally that it would come out of the alliance if the demand of the former to be allotted five Assembly constituencies in the seat-sharing was not conceded.

The Left party convened an emergency meeting of its leaders to discuss on the issue. The Telangana secretary of the party Chada Venkat Reddy chaired the meeting. The party leaders expressed their displeasure over the seat-sharing in the meeting.

"We will not continue in the alliance if the seats we demanded are not conceded to us. We have asked the Congress to leave the Husnabad, Kothagudem, Bellempally, Wyra and Manchiriyal seats to our party. If these seats are not allotted to us, we will come out of the grand alliance," a senior party leader said.

A couple of days back, addressing mediapersons in Delhi, TPCC president N Uttam Kumar Reddy said that the Congress had decided to concede 24 seats to the alliance partners. Of these 14 would be given to the TDP and the remaining seats would be divided among the TJS and the CPI. Some media reports suggested that the CPI would end up with only three seats.

The news expectedly did not go down with the CPI and prompted Venkat Reddy to call for this emergency meeting of his leaders to take a final call on the issue of being part of the grand alliance.
