The Party has also identified certain political, organisational and administrative mistakes that were committed and had taken up the task to rectify them with right earnest and work more closely with the masses.
We are aware of the difficult conditions under which the Communist Party of Turkey is functioning. We are also observing the current developments in your country with interest particularly after the recent general elections. We hope that the TKP would be able to overcome all the hardships and strengthen the party in the coming days by the correct application of the Marxist-Leninist theory to the particular conditions of your country.
Once again on behalf of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), we convey our warm fraternal greetings to the tenth congress of the Communist Party of Turkey and hope that the discussions and decisions you would arrive at in this conference would rally all the progressive and democratic forces in the society and carry forward the struggle for the establishment of a socialist society. While such a struggle would be long and arduous, on behalf of the CPI (M), we assure you our solidarity and support.
