NEW DELHI, MARCH 7. The Communist Party of India (Marxist) today unveiled a series of programmes it has planned in the run up to the 18th Party Congress being held here in April. It includes seminars, discussions and cultural programmes in various parts of the capital.

The Party Congress, the highest decision-making body of the party, is scheduled for April 6 to 11 and it will formulate party views on issues of national and international importance and elect a new leadership for the next three years.

Providing details of the programmes being planned between March 9 and April 5, the reception committee chairperson, Jogendra Sharma, the committee vice-chairperson, Brinda Karat, and the Delhi State Secretary, P.M.S. Grewal, told correspondents that at the end of the Party Congress, a mass rally would be organised at the Ram Lila grounds that would be renamed `Major Jaipal Singh Maidan.'

Cultural programmes

Several cultural troupes from across the country will perform theatre, dance, music, street plays and put up other cultural shows in different parts of the city, especially in the industrial belts and resettlement colonies. While cultural events will be organised at 15 places in and around Delhi from March 9 to 18, a week-long programme of seminars in Hindi will be held from March 17 and a three-day seminar in English will be conducted between April 3 and 5.

A painting exhibition on the theme `People in Progress' will be held from March 23 to 31, and part of the proceeds will go towards meeting the expenses for the Congress.
