Kochi: CPM state conference mooted greater involvement of party members in the non-political organisations in the society. Residents associations, clubs, temple committees and other regional groups must have the presence of party members, it demands.
Those who do not cooperate with CPM will continue to remain in the Front to ensure continuity of its rule. The report states six major self-criticisms and corrections.
Despite retaining power in Kerala, the party could not expand the base. Comrades shall introspect why this happened. Leaders must listen to the issues of people and offer help.
Loss of cadres
Some party cadres and families are now with Sangh Parivar. The RSS is doing a slow and steady campaign by helping struggling Hindu families. Party units must check if this is happening under their nose.
The nature of creating permanent enemies should change. Some party members are still wary towards minority communities despite the party becoming more acceptable among them. This must change.
Party must involve in all regional issues. Special effort must be undertaken to solve issues of adivasi, dalit and economically weak societies. A more women-friendly approach is required. Cultural activities must be conducted to propagate progressive values.
Help non-party members
The repudiative attitude of members to help non-CPM members must end. Everyone should feel that party members can be approached for any issue. Periodical house visits are mandatory.
No iron fist on party policy but explaining them to the people is what is expected from leaders.
