The 22nd Party Congress (Party Conference) of Communist Party of  India (Marxist) starts today at Hyderabad, the capital of Telangana. The conference place is named as ‘Mohammed Amin Nagar’ in memory of the late Com. Mohammmd Amin, PBM as also former Minister of W.Bengal Government and veteran CITU leader.

The Congress will continue for 5 days from 18th to 22nd April 2018. Since formation of the Communist Party of India in 1920, the conferences have been held regularly, despite banning of the party, continued attacks from both the British Government and then the governments in independent India. CPI(M) was formed in 1964 protesting against the revisionist policies of the then leadership of CPI.

CPI(M) is the strongest Communist and Left Party in  the country. Though it is the ruling party now in Kerala alone, it had ruled continuously for more than 30 years in W.Bengal and about 25 years in Tripura.

CPI(M) stands for the common people and especially for the poor, underprivileged downtrodden and the toiling masses. It has always been  the uncompromising fighter against the anti-people, anti-worker policies of the ruling classes.

The 22nd Party Congress of the CPI(M) is expected to discuss and decide on the draft political resolution as also political organisational report.
