KOZHIKODE: The recruiting mechanism of the CPI(M) was put under the scanner at the 20th Party Congress, thanks to the declining trend in the membership of party and mass organisations since the 19th Party Congress at Coimbatore in 2008.

According to the latest edition of CPI(M) mouthpiece People’s Democracy, the total number of memberships of Youth, Student and Women Fronts declined considerably. Though the total party membership figures registered an increase, the growth rate declined compared to the period between the 18th and 19th Party Congresses from 13.8 per cent to 6.3 per cent, which is the lowest in the last 20 years. The total party membership in 2011 stands at 10.44 lakh.
