Hyderabad: The Communist Party of India (CPI) on Wednesday said the left parties were ready to discuss with regional outfits, the issue of forming a non-BJP front government in the event of NDA and UPA falling short of numbers.

CPI General Secretary S Sudhakar Reddy said the left parties definitely understand the importance of roles the regional outfits play as neither the BJP-led NDA nor the Congress-anchored UPA may get majority to form government at the Centre.

"In that case, regional parties have to play a role," said Reddy. He said, "The Left, at any cost, is not ready to support the BJP or take the support of the BJP. We want non-BJP front.”

"We are ready to jointly discuss with them (regional parties) and decide the things,” the veteran communist leader stated.
