Reunification of Left an urgent necessity: CPI

Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

of (CPI) has said the reunification of the Left parties is an "urgent necessity" to infuse new confidence into the movement and turn it into a better force.

"Personally, what I feel is not only the time has come (for reunification of Left parties), it's getting late. It is one of the urgent necessities but at the same time we cannot force all the parties concerned immediately to join. Others also should get convinced," General Secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy told PTI in an interview.



"Our party is for reunification of the Communist movement on principle basis and it should be done as early as possible so that it can bring in some new confidence, enthusiasm and proper utilisation of the cadre which is duplicating the work done by all Left parties," he said.

"That (duplication of work) will be avoided and together we (Left parties) can be naturally a better force. I don't say that entire political scenario will change with the Left unity but definitely Left will have big advantage," Reddy said.

Left parties suffered a crushing defeat in the May Assembly elections in West Bengal, their stronghold, and also lost badly to the ruling TMC in the recent bypolls to Cooch Behar and Tamluk Lok Sabha seats and Manteswar Assembly segment.

"We have not yet analysed the Bengal situation (electoral setbacks). It's true that in West Bengal, the Left could not get back to its old position. It may take some more time. But we are sure that the Left has got a big support and solidarity among the rural areas also," Reddy said.

"Right now we are only trying to consolidate our bases; expanding the bases will take some more time. We believe that it's quite possible that after sometime, Left will get back. But it is not only the desire, but we need to work hard and we have to find out exactly why the Left lost so badly," he said.

The senior leader said his party is attracting youth into its fold but admitted that it is not enough.

"It's not the question of party membership (alone), it's the question of following outside. There, our party bases are getting shrunk and we are unable to expand. For that we are trying," he added.
