CPM tie-up

Hyderabad, June 11: The CPM today tied up with the Telugu Desam for the June 28 state panchayat polls over Congress protests, sending its central ally a stern signal amid the fuel price standoff.

The alliance in 12 of the state’s 23 districts ends the Marxists’ eight-year separation from N. Chandrababu Naidu, during which the former “Andhra CEO” was reviled for his “World Bank-dictated” economic policies and his partnership with the “communal” BJP.

It also represents a snub from the CPM to the Congress whose government at the Centre it has propped up for two years despite serious differences over economic and foreign policies.
