ALAPPUZHA:  CPM politburo member M A Baby has once again raised the issue of unification of all Communist movements. Addressing a meeting, held to commemorate the 66th death anniversary of Communist leader P Krishna Pillai here on Tuesday, Baby said that unification of all Communist movement is the need of the hour and this doesn’t mean just the merger of CPM and CPI. Meanwhile, CPI national council member K E Ismail said the unification will happen in the near future.

Baby said that communist movements should stand united to overcome the problems faced by the people of our country. Some cadre have left the Communist parties after becoming disenchanted with it. It is this reason which led to the disintegration of the party in West Bengal, he said. Ismail said that discussions about the need for unification are going on among the cadre. Hence, the party leaders must take a clear stand on the issue, he said.

About the poll debacle, Ismail said the communist parties will try to identify the drawbacks and try to come up with alternatives to counter them. “The present political scenario doesn’t favour Communist movements,” he said.
