CPM is looking for fresh candidates

Amid the politburo and central committee meetings, it has been reported that CPM is looking forward to fresh candidates to contest in the coming polls. The candidates should not be necessarily new faces in the politics, but they should be new in the election rigmarole. The party has been in the habit of nominating the winning candidates in most of the seats, whereas they tend to change only the losing candidates. Such a revolutionary concept may aid us with some really new faces, who have never contested in any election. However, if the organizers are found as the faces in the election, it will certainly bring a fresh...

Lesson from AAP for CPM

The CPM think tank has assembled at Agartala for their politburo and central committee meetings, which become more pertinent on the backdrop of the recent polls. It must be noted that CPM had won three seats in Rajasthan in 2008, which they have lost in front of the Modi wave. After being almost ousted from West Bengal, the party had been looking desperately to increase its relevance at the national level. It is reported that some top notch leader has admitted that the party can even learn a lesson from AAP, who has scored triumphantly in Delhi on their emergence. It is really an irony for the party CPM that most of the people have been talking about Congress and BJP or even AAP or TMC. Alas! The self-proclaimed national level party has become almost abandoned at the national...

Poll Debacle for Left Continues

Yet another poll in West Bengal and the trend of decay of left front continues. It had been since 2009, the left parties have been losing their ground in West Bengal, which is popular as their strong hold. Such a constant decay could be rarely dreamt in 2006, where the left parties could register a stunning victory in the Assembly polls. The arrogant left parties started taking everything granted. Being inspired by such phenomenal results, the party started functioning without bothering for the inevitable impact on the citizens and their livelihood. Today’s poll debacle may be termed as the glimpses of the inevitable consequences of showpiece of such an audacity. Even the left could not get away from such a slow but steady perish. There had been several untoward incidents in West Bengal, which were shielded by the left parties and the administration in their long 34-year regime. Such unwanted acts have spread such a tarnished image that the electorates are still hesitant to accept the left parties despite several blunders and failures of the current Government. The sudden rise of BJP’s vote share clearly indicates the electorates are utterly confused in selecting the right alternative. Even Congress has come out as the second party in some municipalities. The anti-incumbency factors could not be intensified by the apparently confused left parties. It is astonishing that the left parties could not raise the hue and cry about any pitfalls of the ruling party, who have come to the fame because of their revolutionary protests. The misconducts of the left are still referred often and on. As an obvious effect, the trend of significant decay remains ongoing and that could not stir the party top brasses. Did we find any of the top rank leaders to take the blame squarely? It is really unfortunate that the left parties did not feel the urgency of impelling to come in harmony with the citizens of West Bengal, though they have been constantly persisting to stand by the hapless citizens. The left parties had been always ranting at the silence of the TMC on issues that are related to common people. Ironically, Mamata Banerjee had ousted the CPM, whereby their voices against the land acquisition had been swelled into a roar. Land acquisition certainly remains as commoners’ issue than the nuke deal, for which Prakash Karat had withdrawn their support from UPA-I. Leaving asides such historic blunders, the left parties have developed many enemies even at the national level, which has also caste its...

Bengalis have always been awarded the back seat in CPM

The news reports reveal that the CPM has decided to build up a party office at Delhi in the name of Harkishen Singh Surjit Bhavan. The land has been gifted by the Central Government. Undoubtedly, Harkishen Singh had shown exceptional traits that have made him credible in the CPM party, even today. It must be humbly mentioned that Late Jyoti Basu has registered a record of continuous 24-year long Chief Minister Ship in West Bengal. The cadres and his fonder have been celebrating his birth centenary. The CPM Head Quarters lead by the fertile brains of Prakash Karat has decided to ignore such a glittering constitutional role of Jyoti Basu and kept Harkishen Singh, the general Secretary ahead. The record book unravels that the West Bengal wing has always been betrayed by the Delhi Head Quarters, though they have contributed the most in the popularity and development of CPM as a...

The dilemma of CPM

While most of the Indians are busy in predicting the outcome of the 2014 general election, CPM has been found to be engaged in finding the answer whether to support Congress or BJP or build up their cherished dream of an elusive third front. It has already raised an acrimonious debate inside the CPM party and belying predictions of many, the party General Secretary Prakash Karat, has been found to twist his stances frequently. When the Indian politics is marred by so many scams, disorders, the diminishing law and order situation, the ideological debate within their confines is geared up to defocus them. In reality, they have been struggling to find the right way to combat the overgrowing popularity of TMC in West Bengal, their onetime strong hold. The CPM is a highly systematic party with a proper hierarchical structure where the voices of revolution hardly become aloud. The party has been able to carefully inculcate such disciplines and even the descendants of Harkishen Singh Surjeet has been showing due diligence to tag the old party line, which should have been reformed with the times and progress in our country. There is no reason of continuing with the feudalistic mind set and most of the parties have proved to belong to same school of thought. It is natural that CPM will show its resilience against the modern campaigning bandwagon like mobile apps, while Congress and BJP have already announced that their election campaign will be aided by such modern apps. Moreover, even if anyone attempts to vouch for a new concept, his opinion has to be ultimately approved by the top brass politburo through the bottom up structure. The time consumption of the entire process may dilute the importance of that opinion. The history unfolds that CPM has failed to timely respond to many emerging situations, where their systematic approach has hindered many contemporary policy decisions, which were absolutely essential. CPM had shown enough traits to make them irrelevant at the national level for such dilly dally attitude. Whether it was to respond to several bills on the floor or even the acceptance of the Prime Ministerial post, CPM has indulged in such delayed decisions, which have labeled the party as a “late riser”. At time, it seems that the party has been suffering from lack of decision taking ability. We did not forget that even the nuke deal had stirred the party and Prakash Karat failed to exhibit his guts to take an accurate decision, for which they...
