Buddhadeb lays out priorities of government’s programmes

KOLKATA: The State Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist),which began its two-day meeting here on Saturday, is deliberating on ways to improve the West Bengal government’s performance and enhance the party’s outreach at the grassroots level.

The meeting, chaired by Nirupam Sen, is being attended by party general secretary Prakash Karat and Polit Bureau member Sitaram Yechury.

A statement issued by the party said that while organisational issues would be discussed on Sunday, Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee opened the discussions, laying out the priorities and direction of the government’s programmes.

The committee members stressed the need to impart further dynamism to the government’s actions, and to bring to fruition its people-oriented programmes, according to the statement.

Since its last meeting (after the Lok Sabha elections), 22 CPI(M) workers and supporters had died at the hands of Maoists, the Trinamool Congress, and Congress workers, the committee said.

The committee adopted a resolution greeting the people of Tripura and the Left Front for the recent victory at the tri-level panchayat elections held on July 20.

The Left Front won the majority in 81.4 per cent of the gram panchayats, the statement said.

The statement added that the Congress had engaged in smear campaigns and resorted to violence, killing two CPI(M) workers.

“The Congress had spent huge amounts of money and had bribed and intimidated the voters,” the statement said.

It noted that despite these odds, the people of the Tripura gave a fitting reply during the panchayat elections.
