The Congress has agreed to leave one Lok Sabha and 12 assembly seats for the CPI, sources in the Congress said.

The alliance will provide some relief to the Congress, which suffered a setback after Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) declined to merge or even an alliance with it.

The CPI had also held seat adjustment talks with the TRS but the latter did not respond positively to its demand.

The Congress leadership seized the initiative and agreed to the CPI’s demand. Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) chief Ponnala Laksmaiah, who is camping in Delhi for three days, will meet CPI state secretary K. Narayana after his return from the national capital.

The two leaders are likely to announce the tie-up after final round of talks. Telangana, which has 119 assembly and 17 Lok Sabha seats, is going to polls April 30.
