Chennai: Describing MDMK's decision of not contesting the assembly polls as 'regrettable,' CPIM's Tamil Nadu unit on Sunday appealed to the Vaiko-led party to reconsider its decision, saying it had an 'important part' to play in the efforts to dethrone the 'anti-people' DMK government.

CPI-M state unit secretray G Ramakrishnan said various parties inlcuding the Left were fighting from the AIADMK-led alliance to defeat the 'scam-tainted' DMK-Congress combine.

"All these parties are fighting from a common platform to defeat the DMK for its anti-people policies in which MDMK has an important part to play. Their decision to not contest the election is regrettable,'' he said in a statement.

Holding that it was important to defeat the DMK-Congress combine, he urged MDMK to reconsider his decision and play an 'important part in the democratic struggle.'

The Left parties, DMDK and some smaller outfits are all part of the AIADMK-led front.

Following differences in seat-sharing with its lead partner AIADMK, MDMK today decided not to participate in the assembly elections in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.
