Thiruvananthapuram: Ahead of the 20th party congress of the CPI-M to be held in Kozhikode in April next year, the district conferences of the party got underway with the delegates meeting in Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode on Thursday.

Apart from organisational issues, the meetings would take stock of the international, national and state-level political and economic issues.

Inaugurating the district meet here, CPI(M) veteran V S Achuthanandan said economic and political situations all over the world reflect the continued relevance of socialism.

He said the developments in Europe and the United States have exposed the deep crisis faced by the capitalist economies.

"In America, people are hitting the street as the crisis gripping its economy is graver than the great depression of 1930s," he said.

Instead of learning lessons from the crisis in the Western World, the UPA Government had been aggressively pushing policies of globalisation and privatisation without bothering their severe consequences to the common mass, he alleged.

The Kozhikode district meet was inaugurated by the party politbureau member Kodiyeri Balakrishnan at Mukkam.

Ahead of the district conferences, meetings had been completed in branch, local and area committees. The state conference is scheduled to be held in the state capital in February next year.
