March 2, 2014
The Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) met in New Delhi on March 1 & 2, 2014. It has issued the following statement:
The Central Committee strongly opposed the UPA government’s move to pass a number of ordinances on Bills it was not able to get passed in parliament. With the Lok Sabha having concluded its last session and on the eve of the election announcement, passing of such ordinances is not only undemocratic but unconstitutional. The UPA government is passing these ordinances just for electoral gains. All such legislation can be taken up only after the new Lok Sabha is constituted.
The Central Committee congratulated the West Bengal Left Front for the mammoth rally at the Brigade Parade Ground on February 9. This record breaking rally was a striking illustration of the mass support enjoyed by the CPI(M) and the Left Front despite the terror tactics and suppression of democratic rights by the ruling Trinamul Congress.
The Central Committee appreciated the success of the Kerala Raksha March which was conducted for 26 days in Kerala by the Party. Lakhs of people attended the meetings across the length and breadth of the state during the march displaying their support for the slogan “Secular India, Developed Kerala”.
The Central Committee discussed the preparations for the Lok Sabha elections in all the states. It approved the first list of seats and the candidates of the Party. (list attached)
The draft of the Election Manifesto of the Party was discussed by the Central Committee. It authorized the Polit Bureau to finalise the manifesto and issue it at the appropriate time.
