Agartala: A two-day special meeting of Tripura’s ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist began here on Saturday to make members “more ideologically acquainted”.
“The purpose of the special meeting of CPI-M Tripura unit is to make the party members and local leaders more ideologically acquainted. This is more important for those who entered the party in recent years,” CPI-M state secretary Bijan Dhar told reporters.
The closed-door meeting, in which 400 delegates are taking part, would lead to “a precise action plan”, he said.
The decision to hold the meeting was taken at Kolkata plenum held on December 27-31 last year.
Tripura Chief Minister and CPI-M politburo member Manik Sarkar, party’s all seven central committee members from the state, and other senior leaders would address the meet.
Dhar, also a CPI-M central committee member, said that regular party classes are being held and the party has been taking steps to guide the party men to remain on the right track.
“Quality of party members is a big issue for us. Our rectification move is on and this is an endless task. To maintain quality of membership is also a non-stop endeavour,” Dhar said.
The party leaders were closely watching the behaviour, performance, activities, manners and life style of party cadre and members, he added.
