CPI(M) Holds Successful Level State Party Class
ON July 24, 2011, the third one-day state level
party class in as many years was successfully organised by the CPI(M)’s
The earlier two state level party classes were
held in July 2009 and October 2010 respectively. The two subjects in
2009 class were the Lok Sabha election reviews of the Central Committee
state committee. The two subjects in the October 2010 class were the

CPI(M) Polit Bureau member Sitaram Yechury,
MP, took two sessions in this class. In the first session, he placed
Central Committee’s review on the recent state assembly elections in
Bengal, Kerala, Tamilnadu and
In the second session, Sitaram Yechury outlined the current political challenges before the country, with special reference to the mega corruption scams of the UPA-2 regime, the neo-liberal economic policies of this government and the threat of terrorism and communalism. While analysing the scourge of corruption, he said that it was not merely a question of the moral degeneration of some individuals in high places; it was a question of the degeneration caused by the entire neo-liberal economic system, which had led to the creation of a thoroughly corrupt nexus between big business, bourgeois politicians and bureaucrats. It was only the Left, he said, that had remained untainted and therefore had the moral and political stature to lead a concerted anti-corruption movement across the country. He also said that this movement must be dovetailed to the struggle on burning issues of the people.
A special and enthusiastic session in this party
class was devoted to handing over to Sitaram Yechury the first
instalment of Rs
6.58 lakh collected as the West Bengal Solidarity Fund from the party
In the concluding session of the class,
CPI(M) state secretary Dr Ashok Dhawale placed the decisions of the
committee meeting that had concluded the previous day under the
guidance of Polit
Bureau members Sitaram Yechury and K Varadha Rajan. He briefly outlined
main points of the resolution “Party Rectification in
At the outset of the class, CPI(M) state secretariat member and Mumbai district secretary Mahendra Singh welcomed the participants. State secretariat member Manohar Muley placed the condolence resolution. State secretariat members Ajit Abhyankar and ex-MLA Narsayya Adam chaired the two sessions respectively. Narsayya Adam made a spirited concluding speech in which he called upon the participants to work with grit and determination to strengthen the party in the state. State secretariat member and ex-MLA J P Gavit and Mumbai secretariat member Shailendra Kamble proposed the vote of thanks.
The CPI(M)’s Mumbai district committee, party volunteers from Mumbai and the management of Adarsh Vidyalaya (Kerala People’s Education Society) had spared no efforts to make excellent arrangements to ensure the success of this state level party class.
A sum of around Rs 50,000, being the amount for 250 subscriptions to the party weeklies Jeevanmarg, Loklahar, People’s Democracy and The Marxist, was collected in this party class. There was also a good sale of books worth Rs 12,000 at the two bookstalls of the party and progressive literature that had been set up by the CPI(M) and by the AIDWA at the venue.
