Agartala, Feb 1 (IANS) Tripura’s ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) Wednesday said it was looking to induct more women members.

“In Tripura, 25 percent of the total of 76,636 CPI-M party members are women. However, in the other states, the percentage is 12 to 13 percent,” CPI-M spokesman Gautam Das told reporters after a four-day long party conference.

The conference selected an 83-member state committee, with 10 women members.

Das said for every 29 voters in Tripura, the CPI-M has a party member, which was much higher than the national average.

The 14-member state secretariat, the highest body of the party in Tripura, got its first woman member in CPI-M central committee member Rama Das.

All top CPI-M leaders, including general secretary Prakash Karat, politburo members Sitaram Yechury, Manik Sarkar and Brinda Karat, were present on all four days of the meeting.

“The party asked all members to launch a mammoth campaign to ensure victory of the Left Front government in next year’s state polls,” Das added.
