Tamil Nadu: CPI (M) to contest in 3 constituencies

Communist Party of India (Marxist) would contest Madurai, Kanyakumari and Coimbatore constituencies in Tamilnadu.
After the final round of seat sharing talks, AIADMK and CPI (M) on Monday inked a poll pact.
AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa and CPI (M) state secretary N. Varadarajan signed the pact on Monday, when comrade Varadarajan called on her at her residence this afternoon.
Then they announced jointly that Madurai, Kanyakumari and Coimbatore seats are alloted to CPI (M).
These three constituencies are strong bastions of CPI (M) and all three constituencies have traditional and historical working class movement of Tamilnadu, N.Varadharajan said.
Madurai and Kanyakumari seats were won by the party in 2004 and, particularly, Madurai was wrested from Subramaniyan Swamy in 1999 by the party.
Kanniyakumari is earlierly known as Nagarcoil. After delimitation, the name of the constituency was changed as Kanniyakumari.
The state committee of CPI (M) will meet soon to decide about the candidates and it will send the names to the polite bureau, N.Varadharajan said.
