Leaders must behave decently to improve relationship with people: CPM report
Thiruvananthapuram: CPM leaders must behave more decently, said a report presented by the party’s state secretariat meeting here on Sunday. The report presented by CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan also observed that the Kolkata plenum report could not be implemented completely.
The party has received widespread complaints regarding leaders behaving arrogantly. Such incidents were also reported during house visits by leaders. The party’s relationship with the people cannot be improved without the leaders behaving decently, the report said. It also mentioned changes needed in the party’s organisational structure and working style.
The Kolkata plenum had directed to intensify organisational activities. But this could not be implemented completely. Similarly, other directions including efforts to ensure the participation of feeder organisations and other community welfare organisations could not be implemented, the report said.
The primary agenda of the state secretariat meeting is to identify the changes needed in the party’s organisational structure and working style. The secondary agenda is to evaluate the LDF government’s administration.
The report presented by Kodiyeri Balakrishnan focused on these two aspects. Only report presentation took place on Sunday. Discussions on the report will be held from Monday.
The state secretariat meeting takes place ahead of the six-day long CPM leadership meetings. The leadership meetings aim to assess the situation following the Lok Sabha elections and take corrective action on the party’s organisational structure and working style.
CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury and S Ramachandran Pillai, who is in charge of organising, will take part in the state secretariat in the coming days.
