CPI (M) Central committee meet from June 10

Special Correspondent

Polit bureau meeting on the first day; central committee to hold deliberations on the next two days


To discuss debacle in polls, corruption, and Lokpal Bill: Raghavulu

State criticised for its indifference to people's problems



HYDERABAD: Meetings of the polit bureau and the Central committee of CPI (M) will be held here from June 10 to 12 to discuss the party's debacle in the recent elections to the West Bengal and the Kerala Assemblies, corruption under the UPA's dispensation and roadblocks to the Lokpal Bill.

CPI (M) State secretary B. V Raghavulu told reporters here on Wednesday that the polit bureau would meet on the first day and the Central committee on the remaining two days. Thereafter, an extended meeting of the State committee would be held on June 13 and 14 to discuss State-level issues. The CPI (M) leader said the party's State secretariat criticised the Congress government in the State for its indifference to the problems faced by the people.

Mr. Raghavulu said the secretariat was of the view that AICC general secretary in-charge of the State Ghulam Nabi Azad made an irresponsible statement citing the Telangana issue as “sensitive”. It showed that the Congress had woken up to the situation all of a sudden. The remark was damaging.

Opposed

The meeting opposed moves of the State government to hold elections to urban and rural local bodies on non-party basis. This it said, was aimed at protecting the interests of the Congress as it feared that it would lose if the elections were held on the basis of party symbols.

Mr. Raghavulu said the Congress party's so-called confidence after winning elections to the posts of Speaker and Deputy Speaker was misplaced. If the party really possessed courage, it should convene another session of Assembly and put the no confidence motion to vote, he added.
