CPI blames Pawan's lack of strategy for poll rout in Rajamahendravaram

Rajamahendravaram: CPI state assistant secretary Muppalla Nageswara Rao attributed the defeat of Jana Sena-led alliance to lack of strong political strategy and clear stand on various issues. He alliance of Jana Sena, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), CPI and CPM won only one Assembly seat in the recent elections.

Speaking to reporters at party office here on Wednesday, Nageswara Rao, who contested from Mangalagiri Assembly constituency, said Pawan Kalyan could not devise a strong strategy and spell out clear stance, and thus was unable to instil confidence among people that the alliance would be an alternative to other main parties. CPI high command will take a decision about the alliance with JSP after its national convention scheduled in New Delhi from July 19 to Juy 21, he added. He said the BSP also had not worked with commitment in the polls.

He cautioned Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to be careful while working with Telangana Chief Minister K Chanrashekar Rao who had betrayed even former AICC president Sonia Gandhi and urged Jagan to protect the interests of the state while dealing with Telangana Chief Minister.

Nageswara Rao also suggested that Jagan discuss with other parties about the supply of Godavari water to Telangana state which is very essential.

The CPI leader accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union home minister Amit Shah of trying to replace parliamentary democracy with Presidential system. Party leaders Muppalla Subba Rao, T Madhu and others were present.
