Prakash Karat holds talks with Mayawati
NEW DELHI: Taking forward the process of putting together a
formation as a national alternative to the coalitions led by the
Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party, Communist Party of India
(Marxist) general secretary Prakash Karat met U.P. Chief Minister
Mayawati here on Sunday.
Mr. Karat had a luncheon meeting with Ms. Mayawati and held
discussions. “We are trying to work out [an alternative] and are
continuing our discussions,” the CPI(M) leader told The Hindu.
While refusing to disclose details of the discussions, Mr. Karat said any formal announcement would take time.
On Saturday, Mr. Karat and his colleagues had a meeting with Telugu Desam Party president N. Chandrababu Naidu.
The former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister later called on Ms. Mayawati.
Last week, he met the former Prime Minister and Janata Dal (Secular)
chief H.D. Deve Gowda and Rashtriya Lok Dal president Ajit Singh.
Samaj Party (BSP) is resorting to a novel way of winning over the
electorate of the capital-using folk singers of Uttar Pradesh.
A group of folk singers will be coming to Delhi at the behest of BSP
to campaign for candidates of the Mayawati led party which is
contesting in all the 70 seats here.
“The singers will perform across Delhi in the run-up to the assembly
elections. They will inform people of Delhi about the achievements and
the good rule of the BSP government in Uttar Pradesh,” a party leader
The BSP has already announced 66 of the 70 assembly candidates,
becoming the first party to name its nominees for majority of the seats
much before the elections expected before December.
The party so far has no representation in the Delhi Legislative
Assembly. BSP president and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati had
recently called party’s Delhi unit leaders to Lucknow to discuss
election preparations. The meeting is to be followed by a convention to
be held here later this month.
