CIMA Gallary

CPM poll blame

Calcutta, July 31: Another fall guy was added today to the CPM’s growing list — mass organisations.

The party’s state committee said at a meeting today that many in the mass organisations either did not vote for the Left Front in the Lok Sabha elections or refrained from campaigning properly. The CPM identified this as one of the reasons for the debacle.

Earlier, the CPM had blamed organisational deficiencies, social disconnect and failure of the district units for the poll loss.

The mass organisations of the party include Citu, the DYFI, SFI, Krishak Sabha and the Ganatantrik Mahila Samiti.

“Our party leaders are now blaming the mass organisations. But what about the political line the leaders have been taking?” a Citu leader asked.
