Lok Sabha Elections 2019: Congress, TDP, CPI, TJS May Join Hands for Polls in Telangana
Hyderabad: The general mood in the Congress, TDP, CPI and TJS seem to favour the coming Lok Sabha elections together in Telangana like in the assembly polls last year. The four parties had formed the "Prajakutami" (People's Front) in the assembly elections to take on the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS).
"That seems to be the general mood right now", Prajakutami convenor and Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) President Prof. M Kodandaram said, when he was asked if the four parties will come together again for the Lok Sabha elections due by May.
He said that “Leaders of the four parties would meet soon”. "We (TJS) met CPI (Communist Party of India) independently, talked a long way with them, met some Congress leaders but no concrete ideas or decisions. Generally exchanged ideas on current situation", Kodandaram said.
In the election of the Pravakutami 119-member assembly, slobber came in which TRS returned to power with 88 seats. Congress was in second place with 19 seats, while TDP got two seats. CPI and TJS attracted a vacancy. The BJP, which fought on its own, won one seat.
"We feel that our campaign strategy was a big failure (in the assembly election) though we had a good agenda. That's the reason for our miserable performance", Kodandaram said.
