The CPI nominated Purnea district secretary Vikas Chandra Mandal for Rupauli seat and Ram Narayan Yadav for Jhanjharpur. Pandey stated that although the quantity of seats supplied to the CPI is sort of much less in comparability to its power, his social gathering has acceded to it to stop the division of votes of secular, democratic and progressive forces.
