    Chandigarh, August 29
    Keen on an electoral alliance with the People’s Party of Punjab (PPP), the Left parties -- the CPI and the CPM -- are preparing to contest 30 seats in the forthcoming state assembly elections.

    “Negotiations are on with PPP chief Manpreet Badal regarding the sharing of seats. We expect to get more than 30 seats from the PPP,” said Joginder Dayal, a member of the CPI national executive. He said the Left parties would clear various issues, including sharing of seats, enlisting of main issues to be raised during the campaign and schedule for the joint campaign, over the next three-four weeks.

    “The PPP leadership will be asked to allocate the constituencies where we have significant vote bank,” said Dayal. He said during the 1980 assembly elections, the CPI and the CPM won more than 12 seats. The Left parties had also done well in the previous two assembly elections, he claimed.

    Notably, the CPI has a sizeable vote bank in Budhlada, Mansa, Malout, Amritsar (West), Valtoha, Majitha, Nihalsinghwala, Jalalabad and Raikot areas. The CPM has its noteworthy presence in Nangal-Anandapur Sahib, Garhshankar, Banga, Phillaur and Sangrur areas.

    Dayal said he had a brief meeting with Manpreet in Phagwara yesterday regarding the electoral tie-up. “The Left-PPP alliance will provide a third alternative to the state people,” he said.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
