The first day of the 23rd State Conference of the CPI Manipur State Council resolved to struggle for the rights of the people guaranteed by the Indian Constitution as a revolutionary political party.
The state conference, which was conducted as a calendar democratic process of the CPI, was kicked off on Friday at the Irawat Memorial Hall in Lamlai, Imphal East. It will continue for three days.
“It is not the time to remain silent against the drastic and communal rule of the BJP which totally suppressed democracy and focuses on privatisation for some vested interest,” said state secretary of CPI Manipur State Council L Sotinkumar while speaking to the media on the sideline of the conference.
He said that the BJP-led government seems to be public and farmers-friendly ahead of introducing various programmes like war on drugs and corruption-free Manipur. However, in reality, they have totally suppressed the voice of the public, deprived the democratic rights, are unable to address the farmer’s issue, unable to nab drug kingpins and the corruption rate is increasing, he added.
The three-day conference will discuss various ongoing issues of the state and will be taking 15 points, especially on the Special Status of Manipur, border issue and the minimum wages policy.
National secretary of CPI Pallab Sengupta confessed that the opposition party supported by the CPI does not have any possibility to win the presidential election of India as there is lack of unity among the oppositions.
However, the CPI is working its level best to strengthen the left parties to form a broader alliance to replace the BJP-led government in 2024, he added.
The conference will also be appointing new office bearers of the CPI Manipur State Council and the resolution taken during the conference will be discussed at the National Conference of CPI which is scheduled from October 14 till October 18 at Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh.
