AGARTALA, March 14 - The ruling CPI (M) on Sunday called for adopting a revolutionary character with a mass line and fight against Hindutva forces, at the two-day brain storming session of the extended State Committee here.
Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar, also a Politburo member of CPI(M), delivered the inaugural speech explaining the resolutions of the plenum held in Kolkata in December last.
Sarkar noted in his speech that the organisational plenum in Kolkata had resolved to build a revolutionary party with a mass line, State Secretary Bijan Dhar told reporters after the session.
�To achieve our goal, we need to consolidate the party among all sections of people, bring qualitative change in the workstyle of party workers and set up an intimate relation with the masses,� Sarkar told the participants.
He said the preachers of �Hindutvabad� were out to destroy the unity of the proletariat and that could be foiled only by building a strong organisation and unity of the working classes.
The plenum had also decided to build up a strong movement against the nexus of feudal lords and capitalists, he added.
Dhar presented a draft plan on strengthening of the party in the State in line with the party plenum resolution.
He said the special meeting was convened to undertake programmes in the State that are compatible with the resolutions of the plenum and to implement these to give CPI-M a revolutionary character.
�We want to achieve socialism but remaining in power for long time, we felt the necessity of an ideological campaign among party activists and masses so that we do not deviate from our ideology,� he said.
Dhar said the meeting also decided to strengthen the party on the principle of democratic centralism, fight against all social evils and maintain peace and tranquillity and harmony between tribals and non-tribals in the State.
He said, altogether 366 delegates, including 46 women participated in the meeting. � PTI
