Resolution on Martyrs

The 21st Congress of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) dips its red banner in memory of the martyrs who laid down their lives fighting for the cause of the working class and democratic movement during the past three years since the 20th Congress.

The 21st Congress pays glorious tributes to the 99 members and supporters of the Party and mass organisations who were killed by the TMC goons and other reactionary forces in West Bengal. Two members of the RSP also laid down their lives.

Resolution on Organisational Plenum

The Central Committee of Communist Party of India (Marxist) while reviewing the Lok Sabha results observed that there is decline in the mass base of the Party and the Party had failed to expand its political influence and increase its organizational strength. In order to find out the reasons for the present situation, the CC had decided to review the political-tactical line Party has been pursuing, to study the changes in the socio-economic conditions since liberalization and their impact on various classes and to review the functioning of the Party organization and mass fronts.
