CPI (M) general secretary Tammineni Veerabadram met Jana Sena party chief Pawan Kalyan on Thursday. In a closed-door meeting, the duo apparently discussed the possibilities of alliance and fighting against anti-people policies. The also allegedly conversed about the latest political developments in Telugu states. Tammineni after the meeting said that the two parties will work together on issues of public interest. They also said to have discussed the situations witnessed and the issues collected by the CPM leader during his padayatra.
It may be recalled, Tammineni lead the Maha Jana Padayatra for ‘Social Justice and Development of Telangana’, which covered almost 4000 kilometers in 31 districts for five-and-a-half months.
Pawan has been giving hints of working with communist parties. Jana Sena which said that it will contest in both the Telugu states, seems to slowly clear air around its strategies in Telangana with his alignment with the Left parties. At the national level, CPM is trying to establish a third front against NDA and UPA. Gaddar, who resigned to the Maoist party, has expressed interest in working with Jana Sena.
