CPI(M) central committee to discuss issue of tie-up with Congress

17 Octobre 2017

A high-level meeting of the CPI (M) saw divergent views being expressed on whether the party should have an electoral understanding with secular forces including the Congress to take on the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Sources said the opinion in the party central committee, which is meeting in Delhi to discuss the contentious issue of its approach towards the Congress in the next general election, is divided.

A top CPI (M) leader told PTI that the overwhelming view in the meeting was that all non-Left secular parties should be united to defeat the BJP.

"We warn the BJP that if they continue to create violence in Kerala they will not see even one MLA elected from the state", he said, addressing party workers in front of the BJP office.

Summary: Based on the discussion at the central committee and polit bureau's line, the political resolution will now be redrafted. Yechury, however, presented a separate note on the matter, the sources said.

Additionally Preferred Apartment Communities recently declared a dividend for shareholders paid on Friday July 14th, 2017. The real estate investment trust reported $0.37 EPS for the quarter, topping the consensus estimate of $0.36 by $0.01.

CPM General Secretary Sitaram Yechury got a boost as the Central Committee (CC) on Monday asked the Polit Bureau to incorporate his ideas on working with "non-Left secular forces", including the Congress, to oust the BJP from power, while finalising party's political line. Though most of the leaders from Kerala supported Karat, veteran leader VS Achuthanandan backed the resolution by Yechury and the party's Bengal unit.

Though the political line worked out by the CPI (M) in 2015 had precluded having any understanding or electoral alliance with the Congress in the fight against the BJP, the party had allowed state units to review the specific political situation before deciding their own tactical line in consonance with the overall understanding.

As a result, the West Bengal state unit had entered into a tactical alliance with the Congress for the 2016 Assembly election, which proved disastrous as the Left was relegated to the third position in the state.

Aiming hard to emerge as a third front in the hill state the Communist Party of India (Marxist), has for the first time made a decision to contest 14 seats of the 68 Assembly segments of Himachal Pradesh.
