ALAPPUZHA: The discussions on the organisational report in the CPM state conference had its thrust on broadening the LDF base further. Twenty six delegates, who participated in the discussions, called for further strengthening the party so as to broaden the base of the Front.
Majority of the speakers said that more and more people presently maintaining a distance with the party should be brought to the fold to make gains on the electoral front.
Delegates opined that the CPM should improve its influence at the national-level to formulate available alternative to the growing influence of the BJP. It has been noted that the party had suffered severe setbacks at the national-level in general and particularly in West Bengal.
“A stagnation is there in the growth of the party. A new approach has to be adopted for getting a smooth going for the party,” a delegate said. Referring to the various agitations the party undertook in the recent past, the delegates observed that the one against the price rise of cooking gas had evoked greater interest among general public.
