CPI (M) join hands with AAP to counter Cong, BJP


New Delhi: CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat has asked party members and supporters to vote in favour of Aam Aadmi Party in the 55 constituencies where the Left parties have not put up any candidates.

He said a similar call had been given during the December 2013 Assembly elections to counter BJP since it is an established stand of CPI (M) to fight the communal stand of BJP and keep the congress out of power.

Karat said, “We will be fighting 15 seats in Delhi other than that telling our people to support the AAP in the remaining seats. We have taken this line earlier also, we have supported the BSP in the past. The main aim is to keep the Congress and BJP out, and in Delhi especially BJP.”

The Delhi Assembly polls will be held on February 7 and the results will be declared on 10 February.
