Some distorted reports have appeared in sections of the media about the meeting of the West Bengal State Committee of the Party attended by Polit Bureau members which was held on July 10, 2016 at Kolkata.

The meeting was held to discuss the decision of the Central Committee regarding the tactics to be pursued in West Bengal.  The Central Committee had stated that the broadest unity should be forged  for fighting the violence and terror and protecting democratic rights against the ruling Trinamool Congress onslaughts in West Bengal.

The rectification in the tactics pertain to the adherence to the line adopted at the 21st Congress of the CPI(M) not to pursue any electoral alliance or understanding with the Congress party in the coming days. 

Based on the reporting of the PB, the West Bengal State Committee decided to take concrete measures to put this understanding into place.
