The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) politburo will hold a two-day meeting in New Delhi from Sunday to review the outcome of the assembly elections in four states and a union territory, a party leader said here.
“The two-day politburo meeting of the CPI-M would be held on Sunday and Monday in New Delhi and would review the results of recently held assembly polls in five states. The meeting would also review the prevailing political situation in the country,” CPI-M central committee member Bijan Dhar told reporters.
“The three-day politburo and central committee meetings were earlier to be held on May 22-24 in New Delhi but were postponed. The three-day central committee meeting would now be held on June 18-20,” he said.
The 16-member politburo and the 93-member central committee will thoroughly study the party’s performance in the five states, specially the electoral disaster in West Bengal.
Though the CPI-M leadership in Tripura is upbeat over the party’s good showing in Kerala, it is upset over the Left Front’s poor performance in West Bengal.
Meanwhile, a two-day meeting of CPI-M’s Tripura state committee concluded here on Friday.
“The state committee has discussed various organisational matters and outcome of recent elections to the local bodies including Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council,” the Left leader said.
An aggressive campaign would be launched by the party against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government and conspiracies of the opposition parties in the state, said Dhar, who was accompanied by another central committee colleague Gautam Das.
Dhar, also the secretary of the CPI-M Tripura state committee, said that with the installation of the BJP-led government in Assam, there would be no change of socioeconomic situation in that state as its economic policies are similar to the Congress.
“Fed up with the Congress led government in Assam, people of the state voted to power the BJP led government as other secular and democratic parties including Left parties are weak in the northeastern state,” the Marxist leader added.
