New Delhi: The Central Committee of the CPI(M) will meet here on Sunday to decide on steps to rejuvenate the party cadre and organisation, especially in its erstwhile strongholds of West Bengal and Kerala.
The four-day meet is also aimed at finalising the draft political and tactical line for a debate within all the rungs of the party over the next four-five months before it is adopted at the Party Congress to be held at Visakhapatnam in April next year.
Today's meeting comes days after the highest decision making body of the party, the Politburo had finalised a draft report on the emerging political situation in the country. It had also given final touches to a draft on the political-tactical line to be adopted by the party in the aftermath of its dismal poll performance.
These two drafts would be placed for discussion before the Central Committee today. After the Central Committee finalises the draft, it would be circulated till the lowest ranks of the party members for debate and discussion, followed by it being presented at the Party Congress.
The biggest of worries for the party is its successive losses in West Bengal. Reports said that the party will assess the ground situation in West Bengal with a large section of the party raising alarm over what they feel is an alarming rise communalism in the state.
CPI(M) leaders have been blaming Trinamool Congress for helping BJP gain ground in the state by fanning communal passions.
The Central Committee, which is almost a hundred-member body including special and permanent invitees, would also decide on protest actions being launched by trade unions and mass organisations in the next few weeks against the "anti- people" policies of ruling BJP-led coalition.
CPI(M) feels Narendra Modi government represents "a combination of corporate power and RSS-led Hindutva forces" and the policy steps taken by it clearly indicate a "rightward shift".
