Serious erosion in party’s support base, need to introspect reasons: CPI-M leader

Striking a self-critical note, CPI(M) politburo member MA Baby on Friday said there has been a serious erosion in the party’s support base as reflected in the Lok Sabha polls last year and it was essential to introspect the reasons for this and take corrective steps. CPI(M) could have performed better in Kerala and it is facing the biggest challenge in West Bengal, he said in his opening address at a party meeting at Ettumannur near here.

“There is serious erosion in the party’s support base. The party had received its severest drubbing in history in the last Lok Sabha polls. The party should attempt a self- critical analysis to ascertain the reasons for that,” he said. Baby said there was no point in boasting about the LDF in Kerala having doubled its tally by winning eight seats this time from four in 2004 Parliament polls as it could have performed much better given the circumstances in the state.
