The CPM has resolved to fight alongside the AIADMK to take on the DMK-Congress alliance in the upcoming Assembly polls in May. The decision was announced on Tuesday after the conclusion of a two-day state committee meeting convened to discuss the matter.

Politics, media and film field... the chief ministers family rule is spreading like the tentacles of an octopus to all walks of life, noted the committee, stressing the need to oust the current regime from power.

The fall of the ruling dispensation run by DMK-Congress combine was in the interest of the public, hence there is a need to forge an alliance with AIADMK and other like-minded parties, said the statement from the CPM State Committee on the rationale behind the alliance.

The meeting in Chennai was attended by party secretary Prakash Karat.
