The Polit Bureau discussed the draft political-organisational report to be presented to the 22nd Party Congress to be held at Hyderabad from April 18 to 22, 2018. This will now be put before the Central Committee at its forthcoming meeting from March 28 to 30, 2018 and after its adoption will be placed before the Congress.
The Polit Bureau hails the struggles of the kisans in Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh which is now spreading to various other parts of the country. The Modi government must immediately implement its election promise of announcing a Minimum Support Price of one and a half times the production cost as also a loan waiver. The CPI(M) also demands that a special Central legislation be enacted where the government shall compulsorily buy the produce of the kisans at the minimum support price.
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) extends its complete support to the Maharashtra farmers who have embarked on an unprecedented action of a strike since June 1.
