(Weekly Organ of the Communist Party of India (Marxist)
September 12, 2010
held over September 1-2 at the Muzaffar Ahmad Bhavan in Kolkata, the
state committee of the CPI(M) called upon every worker and leader to
reality the ambience that calls for a positive change in the political
Bengal today. No sacrifices should be
shunned, no pro-people activities, especially pro-poor, slackened, and
forces of anarchy out to destroy the carefully-nurtured democratic
The state committee let it be known in clear and in ringing tones that there was a positive sign of protest amongst the masses to defeat the forces of anarchy in the political arena. This must be kept firm in mind and contact with the masses made, as before, a continuous and ever-widening political-organisational drive.
In the long and meaningful discussion sessions, the members of the state committee were at one in noting that during the month-long August campaign on issues touching the lives and livelihoods of the people, especially the poor, has had its effect in more and more popular participation in the CPI (M)-led movements and struggles. The effort was to reach out to the masses with the Party’s political campaign along with the need to resolve the emergent problems troubling the daily lives of the people, the rise in process of common commodities taking the prime of place as did the issue of anarchy and counter-democratic ploys of the enemies.
It was duly noted by the state leadership that more than in the recent past, the enthusiastic participation in the party-led programmes of campaign-movements from amongst the poor and from the backward classes of every community has visibly increased and the trend continues to display long-term prospects of the right kind.
The section or sections of the people that had been even marginally alienated from the acts and activities of the Party have chosen emphatically to rejoin the ranks and regroup for mass struggles to have a politically meaningful significance.
The state committee members made a special mention of the situation in the jangal mahal area. The state unit noted the militant nature of protest and resistance of the masses that are now quite infuriated against the anti-people and anti-poor acts of commission perpetrated on them by the so-called, self-styled ‘Maoists.’ People in massive numbers have taken to the streets in the jangal mahals widest areas across the districts of Midnapore west and Bankura to frustrate the anti-people and anti-poor designs of the reactionary elements. The pro-people and pro-poor initiatives of the state Left Front government have continued to receive, as in the past, the fullest support from amongst the people.
A POLITICAL TASK
In conclusion, Biman Basu, state secretary of the CPI(M), stressed the importance of the political task of bringing back to the Party ranks those of the Party workers, supporters and sympathisers who had chosen to break ranks with the Party for some acts of the Party that had irritated them into doing what they have done.
The hired goons of the enemy must be countered by maintaining and deepening an enduring contact with the masses, all the while, all the way. The party and the people shall advance by defeating the machinations of the forces of anarchy and mayhem. To make this aim fructify, the intensity of the campaign-movement must be sharpened and widened in the days, months, and years to come, he stressed.
Biman Basu also highlighted the need to ensure that the working of the Panchayats were organised successfully, again taking the masses into confidence. He also underscored the need to increase the Party initiative and Party monitoring in the concerned sectors. He said that while striving to make success out of pro-people developmental work and undertaking the correct political initiative, the masses must be mobilised and mass deputations submitted everywhere against the massive corruption and assorted crimes against the people perpetrated by the opposition- run Panchayats, Panchayat Samities and Zillah Parishads.
A wide and
of jathas under the aegis of the
Bengal Left Front would be organised in the villages as well as the
stretches between the last week of September until the first week of
based on the emergent needs of issues touching the lives and
livelihoods of the
masses. The party committees at the appropriate levels must make it a
ensure that the programme was carried through and properly implemented
planned manner. The other important point was the drafting of demand
to be placed appropriately with the union government and the Left Front
government here in
The jathas’ success depended on the panning that has to be
beforehand by drawing up and implementing a detailed programme of
meetings and street-corner meetings in the rural and urban areas. The
Front workers must meet the people at the household level to speak to
to listen to their problems and woes, to guide them and lead them. The
Congress and indeed the entire spectrum of the opposition in
