CPI-M to contest on 12-15 seats in Gujarat

Wednesday October 31, 2012 09:57:07 PM, IANS

Shimla: The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) will contest on 12-15 seats in Gujarat in December, party leader Sitaram Yechury said Wednesday.

Yechury was here to canvass for CPI-M candidates for the Nov 4 polls. He said the CPI-M had succeeded in giving a "credible third alternative" to the people in the hill state.

"The CPI-M has succeeded in Himachal with like-minded parties to give a third alterative. We will strive hard to fill the void created by the Congress and the BJP," he said.

Yechury was non-commital on supporting the Trinamool Congress' decision to bring a no-confidence motion against the United Progressive Alliance on issue of allowing foreign investment in retail trade.

"The TMC says something and does something else," he said.

The CPI-M has fielded 23 candidates in Himachal Pradesh.

In May, the CPI-M scripted history by winning the top posts of the Shimla Municipal Corporation, one of the country's oldest civic bodies.

Himachal Pradesh has also emerged as one of the fastest growing areas for the CPI-M's youth wing, the Students Federation of India.
