New Delhi: The CPM central committee, in its analaysis report on the Assembly Election results, asked the Kerala state committee to take necessary steps to woo the minority communities.

Middle class people in Muslim community are getting closer with the party. New cadres from them must be nurtured as leaders. Similar actions in Christian belts are also necessary, the committee directed in its report.

The nine constituencies in which BJP ended as the runner-up need special attention. Underprivileged members of BJP are leaving the party. Action must be taken to bring them to CPM fold. The central committee also reminded the state faction that though BJP failed to win a seat, it does not mean they are a weak force. The party members have to be taught about the ideology of the Hindutva forces.

The political line taken against BJP and RSS, Congress’ cooperation with BJP, welcoming KC(M) and LJD, and the government’s actions which benefited all sections of people influenced the voters which helped to retain power in the state, the central committee noted.

The Kerala society is getting influenced by right-wing ideology, the central committee observed. Dowry deaths and attack on women are signs of that. CPM and other progressive organisations must come forward to resist this.
