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?

Is there any constitutional provision that a person who is under jail custody is deprived of their right to vote whereas any accused has the right to contest any kind of election from jail custody.  There are quite large number of voters detained in several jails (near about 4 lakh) throughout the country during 16th Lok Sabha election in 2014.  What is your view?

Our Party gives emphasis for abolition of castes. It is true that without freeing dalits, the caste abolition is not possible. But at the same time BCs also have some genuine problems. Our documents never refer them as if they are our enemies on par with capitalists and landlords. Why our Party is silent or less emphatic on their problems?

Our Party conferences at district/state/all India level elect steering committees to conduct the schedule of conferences. Once steering committees are formed the entire organisational power is vested in them till the new committees are elected. In view of this, my questions are: if steering committee concept is so important, why it does not at all find a mention in the Party Constitution? The word "steering committee" is completely absent in the Party Constitution at least in the web version. The conference discusses the report by district committee/state committee/CC as the case may be.
