Review of the Assembly Elections in Kerala, West Bengal,
Tamilnadu & Puducherry and Assam
These results must further strengthen the people’s movements and struggles in the country to safeguard the secular democratic character of the Indian Republic and for vastly improving the living conditions of the people.
The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) met online on March 11, 2021. It has issued the following statement:
Forthcoming State Assembly Elections
n Kerala, the Party will continue to contest elections as part of the LDF. In Tamilnadu, the CPI(M) will contest the elections as part of the DMK led alliance. In Assam, the CPI(M) will contest the elections in cooperation with all secular opposition parties including the Congress to defeat the incumbent BJP government in the state, which is sharpening communal polarization, destabilizing social harmony and heaping miseries on the people. In West Bengal, the CPI(M) and the Left Front will have an electoral understanding with all secular parties, including the Congress, which seek to defeat the BJP and the TMC.
The Central government must immediately declare this as a national calamity and substantially help the states in facing the impact of this disaster.
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) reiterates that all those guilty of this public loot, whether they are now with the BJP or the TMC must be brought to book, their properties confiscated and monies looted from the people be returned to them, with interest.
