CPI-M politburo meet to chalk out strategiesFebruary 23rd, 2008 - 6:02 pm ICT by admin
New Delhi, Feb 23 (IANS) Top leaders of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) will begin a two-day meet Monday to take stock of party functioning and to chalk out its future strategies. “The politburo will discuss and finalise the political and organization report for the party congress,” said senior CPI-M leader S. Ramachandra Pillai.
According to Pillai, who is a member of the politburo, the report, which would be adopted in the biennial CPI-M congress that will be held in Coimbatore March 29-April 2, will “take stock of the party functioning and decide the future strategies.
“We will see how far we have succeeded in meeting the tasks we had set in the last party congress and what steps we should take for future,” he said.
The political report is also expected to focus on the formation of a non-Congress and non-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alternative.
CPI-M general secretary Prakash Karat recently said party congress would decide on the formation of the Third Front as an alternative to India’s two main political parties - the Congress and the BJP.
The CPI-M insists that the Third Front cannot be a mere electoral alliance but should be founded on the three principles of consistent opposition to communalism, agreement on a common minimum programme and a firm commitment to an independent foreign policy and pro-people economic policy.
The political and organisational report will also review the CPI-M’s efforts to spread its base in the Hindi belt.
“The major issues that should be discussed in the budget session will also come up for discussion,” Pillai said.
The budget session begins Monday.
