Kolkata, Jul 26 (UNI) The CPI(M) state committee today emphasised on unity among all the Left Front constituents and underscored the need for plugging the loopholes in the organisation to develop a sound political relation with people.
''During the Panchayat elections, while unity among Left parties prevailed in some places, it was not implemented in certain cases, despite entering into an agreement with the Front partners for the sharing of seats. This has resulted in a negative effect in the rural polls, as the show of unity was negated in reality,'' the statement said.
All the state committee members of the party had identified the weaknesses of the organisation which had failed in developing a close political relation with the people, the statement added.
The alliance of the radical right and Left parties, in association with communal forces, chirstened ''mahajot'', had campaigned for ''one against one candidate'' and played an opportunist role by misguiding the people, according to the statement.
This had rendered the people into a state of confusion, it opined.
The two-day state committee meeting started today.
The meeting, chaired by veteran leader Binoy Konar and the party's state unit secretary Biman Bose, got the review report of the Panchayat election and preliminary reports of Municipal election.
Party's general secretary Prakash Karat, veteran Marxist leader Jyoti Basu, Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, Transport Minister Subhas Chakraborty among others were present in the meeting.
