CPI-M confident of regaining people's trust: Karat

June 13, 2009 16:22 IST
Stung by the Left parties' drubbing in the Lok Sabha polls in Kerala and West Bengal, Communist Party of India-Marxist General Secretary Prakash Karat on Saturday said his party was critically analysing the reasons for it.

CPI-M would take the correct approach both in party and government level to regain the confidence of the people who have alienated from the party after examining the reasons for their hostility, Karat said at a national seminar on 'The World of EMS', held on the occasion of Communist ideologue E M S Namboodiripad's birth centenary celebrations Malappuram in Kerala.

"We are undertaking a serious review of the causes that led to the poll reverse," Karat said, adding that the party would see that the election reverses did not in any way demoralise the Communist movement in the country.

Karat also said this was not the first time the party was facing poll reverse in Kerala, and party was confident it would be able to regain the trust of the people.

Stating that the Left in the country would continue its struggle against imperialism, neo-liberalism of the ruling class and threat of communal and fascist forces in the country, Karat said the highest tribute the party could give to EMS at this juncture could be to inculcate the essence, spirit and method adopted by him in guiding the party.

Karat described EMS as the path finder for the Communist movement in the country. State Finance Minister T M Thomas Issac, Local Administration Minister Paloli Muhammedkutty were among those who attended the seminar.
