Thiruvananthapuram: The CPM state conference, scheduled to be held from March 1 to 4 in Ernakulam, may be postponed in the wake of the current Covid-19 situation. The CPM state secretariat on Tuesday considered the matter based on the conclusion that the pandemic situation is expected to worsen in the state by February.

However, state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said that the party has not decided on the matter yet.

The state conference is expected to be rescheduled to the end of March. There has been no decision taken so far on postponing the Party Congress, scheduled for the first week of April. It will be considered later by the politburo by reviewing the situation.

Several district conferences were conducted amid restrictions. It invited criticism. The Kasaragod and Thrissur district conferences were cut short in time and the Alappuzha district conference was postponed. Kerala HC also intervened on the matter.

A mega 'thiruvathira' dance that was held in Thiruvananthapuram as part of the conference was an embarrassment for the organisation that made the state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan publicly disown it and the district secretary apologise.
