CPI pledges support to BJD in RS poll

A day before the elections for three Rajya Sabha seats in Orissa, CPI today announced its support to the ruling BJD candidates.



Bhubaneswar: A day before the elections for
three Rajya Sabha seats in Orissa, CPI today announced its
support to the ruling BJD candidates.

"Extending support to BJD in the RS polls is a political
compulsion for CPI," party`s state General Secretary Dibakar
Nayak announced here after a meeting of party leaders.

CPI, which has only one MLA in the 147-member Orissa
Assembly, had seat adjustment with the BJD during the 2009
general elections. The party has one MP from the state.

Though the CPI has only one vote, it is crucial for
tomorrow`s Rajya Sabha election as the BJD requires two
more votes to ensure victory of its third candidate.
