THE 7th state conference of CPI(M) Uttarakhand concluded with a strong party building, mass movement and a resolve to ensure the defeat of communal forces in the state.

The conference was held from December 24-26, 2021 at Comrade Virendra Bhandari Nagar and Comrade Satyaprakash Manch, Jain Dharamshala, Dehradun. On this occasion, after taking out a grand rally in Dehradun city and paying homage to the martyrs of the state movement and the eminent leaders of the country and the state, the state conference of the Party started.

Inaugurating the open session of the conference, Party general secretary, Sitaram Yechury, while talking in detail on international and national politics, called for a united struggle against the communal and anti-people policies of the Modi government. He said that the Modi government is misusing the government investigative agencies to suppress the voice of the opposition parties and is constantly playing with the basic spirit of the Constitution. While speaking on the communal policies of the Uttarakhand government, he said that under the patronage of this government, the dharma sansad was organised in Haridwar, disrespecting the basic spirit of the Constitution and spreading communal tension in the entire country. The CPI(M) and Left parties strongly oppose this act. He said that the Left parties should work to oust the BJP from power by fighting unitedly in the assembly elections to be held in the state.

A 25-member state committee was elected in the conference in which Rajendra Negi was elected as the state secretary along with a secretariat of seven members comprising Surendra Singh Sajwan, Gangadhar Nautiyal,  Indu Naudiyal, Mahendra Jakhmola, Rajendra Purohit, Bhupal Singh Rawat and Vijay Rawat was elected as a permanent invitee of the state secretariat.
