Chennai, PTI | Updated : 15 June 2013, 06:48 PM

CPI on Saturday said it does not have any plans for alliance with other political parties in Tamil Nadu for the June 27 Rajya Sabha biennial elections.

"Till now there is no such alliance or any such thing. As AIADMK is contesting all five seats, they have expressed their inability to give extra votes", Party's national General Secretary Sudhakar Reddy told reporters here.

"So at the moment, no alliance, no adjustments with other parties... We will wait and see how the events unfold in the next three-four days", he said.

Reddy and senior party leader A B Bardhan had recently met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in Delhi to seek the ruling AIADMK's support for its Rajya Sabha candidate.

The party is yet to take a formal decision on renominating D Raja or nominate anyone else as its Rajya Sabha candidate.

The tenure of Raja, along with A Elavarasan, V Maitreyan (both AIADMK), Kanimozhi, Tiruchi N Siva (both DMK) and B S Gnanadesikan (Cong) expires on July 27.
