It is observed that the structures of autonomous district councils are formed only in the North Eastern Region (NER) of the country, though the vast bulk of tribal people are found outside the NER, such as in Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Gujarat etc where this means of development has got missed owing to absence of such autonomous bodies. In the constitution also such provision is absent for states other than the NER.  Whether the issue would be given a thought and the need for creation of ADCs in those states be emphasized by CPI(M)?

What is the Party’s response to the promotion of Yoga by the central government?  Even Left-led governments are announcing that they will also introduce Yoga classes in schools.  Some people are criticising this as being part of the ‘Saffronisation Programme’.

Reports have appeared in the media that the newly-sworn in LDF government  has supported the stand of the earlier UDF government before the Supreme Court which was against the entry of women into the Sabarimala temple. If this is true, it is truly unfortunate. What is the Party’s position on this issue?

1. The north eastern region of India is surrounded by foreign countries, about 98 percent of the boundary having been bordered internationally. Thus the region appears almost detached from the mainland of the country, at the same time having no mutual contact with neighbouring countries. Inside the region, the states are separated from one another by hill tracks resulting in the own-styled growth of the states in respect of food habits, races and languages, economy, employment, culture etc. So the people of these states generally bear identities specific to the concerned states.

a) Though we have more than 10.58 lakh Party Members (after the 20th Congress) throughout the country we failed to expand our strength except in three states ie, West Bengal, Kerala and Tripura since the formation of the CPI(M) in 1964. What are the drawbacks/lapses of the Party?

b) In the recent state assembly election in five states, except Kerala, the poor electoral performance in other states are very much unsatisfactory which needs proper review and thorough examination before Lok Sabha election in 2019. What is your view on the matter?

There is no recruitment for the government posts at the state and central government levels. Why is the CPI(M) and Left not taking up this issue in a big way?
Shyamlal Panda, Raigada

THE central government and most of the state governments are not filling up the vacancies in government posts. In fact there is a official ban on recruitment to these posts. According to the Seventh Pay Commission, in the central government departments there are 7.47 lakh vacancies. Lakhs more are there lying vacant at the state governments’ level.

Is there any uniform advertisement policy for the organs of CPI(M)? We see that the central government ads on achievements of two years of Modi government have been published in various state Party organs even sparing full page of the paper. The contents of the advertisement which are always rejected by the Party in its day-to-day campaign, are given space in the Party organs. Doesn’t it create confusion among the common readers or common Party supporters who like to see that the Party organ does not carry anything contrary to the ideological stand of the Party?
