New Delhi: The CPI(M) Politburo on Saturday debated
its tactics for the ensuing assembly elections in three states
and began the work of finalising guidelines to deal with
organisational problems that led to its rout in the recent
polls.

The major purpose of the two-day meeting is to give final
touches to amending and strengthening its "rectification
document" that had been prepared 13 years ago.
"We discussed the political situation and the upcoming
assembly elections in the three states (of Maharashtra,
Haryana and Arunachal Pradesh)," Politburo member Sitaram
Yechury told reporters here.

On the rectification document, he said the Coimbatore
Congress of the party last year had decided that the 1996
document be updated keeping in view the changed situation.

Asked whether the lifestyle of some state leaders was
leading to its cadre leaving the party, Yechury said "you may
have your own conclusions but we have not come to those
conclusions. We are undertaking an honest assessment. We admit
our mistakes and try to rectify them."
To questions relating to the absence of West Bengal Chief
Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee at the Politburo meeting, he
said the senior leader was sick and had been medically advised
not to travel.
