Congress led People’s Front in Telangana sends letter to governor informing about the alliance

Congress has an alliance with Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Communist Party of India (CPI) and Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) in Telangana

Ahead of the declaration of results after counting of votes tomorrow for the recently concluded assembly elections for five states, the Congress party and its alliance partners have made the first move in Telangana trying to form a government in the state.

Today the Congress party informed the governor of Telangana that it has a pre-poll alliance named People’s Front in the state, where the other alliance partners are Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Communist Party of India (CPI) and Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS). In a letter sent to the governor, which was signed by all four parties, mentions that the People’s Front was formed before the election, and they contested the elections ‘unitedly’ on 7th December.

The parties claim that they have a common agenda which has been submitted to the Election Commission. The alliance says that after winning the elections, the alliance is going to form the government collectively and continue to work as alliance partners.

Congress is the majority partner in the alliance of four parties, with 94 candidates fielded by the party in the election for 119 member house. TDP was allotted 14 seats, TJS 8 and CPI was given 3 seats to contest. The alliance is seeking to dislodge TRS from power in the state where elections are taking place for the second time since its formation in 2014. In September this year, the K Chandrashekar Rao led TRS government had decided to dissolve the assembly, which was due to finish its term in May next year. Just after the assembly was dissolved, the four parties had come together to form the alliance.
