Plenum: Pres Release
news from the cpi(m)
December 28, 2015
The second day of the CPI(M)'s Plenum on Organisation began at the
Promode Dasgupta Bhawan today morning at 11.00 a.m. with the introduction
of the "Draft Resolution on Organisation" by General Secretary Sitaram
The draft lays down the need "to strengthen and streamline the Party's
organisational capacities to meet the current challenges by unleashing
mightier people's struggles to develop the independent strength" of the
Party in conformity with the political-tactical line adopted at the 21st
Congress of the Party. The Congress held at Vishakapattanam in April this
year, had laid stress on forging the Left and Democratic Front.
The Draft Resolution underlined the imperative to vastly develop the
organisational capacities of the Party to enable it to accomplish these
revolutionary objectives and emerge as the political party of the vast
majority of the exploited classes in the objective situation of the world
capitalist crisis and intensified exploitation. Domestically, the CPI(M)
"has an alternative policy framework" which will enable the Indian people
"to realise their inherent potential and create a better India on that
basis". As also because, the CPI(M) is the only political party that
offers the Indian youth a vision of a better future…. which puts forward
alternative policies to marshal our country's resources to provide our
youth with quality education, good health and sustainable employment".
Sitaram Yechury underscored the fact that the CPI(M) is a "consistent
political force that advocates and struggles for the unity of our
multi-religious, multi-lingual, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic population
against all efforts at sharpening communal polarisation and thwarting the
RSS/BJP designs to impose their project of a rabidly intolerant fascistic
Towards achieveing these tasks the Draft calls upon the Party to take up
social issues in a big way, while simultaneously taking up the issues of
economic exploitation and social oppression – "the two feet upon which
stands the advance of class struggles in India." Among the social issues
identified for taking up by the entire Party are the "championing the
struggle against gender oppression, discrimination against the dalits,
tribals, disabled and religious minorities".
The draft also outlines the various methods that need to be employed to
expand the influence of the Party and strengthening the Party organization
as its vision can only be materailised if the organisational capacities of
the Party are strengthened enormously.
After the introduction of the Draft Resolution, the discussions along with
the draft report began. In the morning session today three delegates
participated in the discussion – P. Rajeev from Kerala, Samik Lahiri from
West Bengal and Narayan Kar from Tripura.
The discussions on both these documents will continue till the evening of
