Split Ir­rel­e­vant, we are for CPM Merger: CPI

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

Main­tain­ing that the rea­sons for their split in 1964 are “ir­rel­e­vant”, CPI on Thurs­day favoured an early merger with CPM cit­ing “gen­eral urge” among the peo­ple for uni­fi­ca­tion of the Com­mu­nist move­ment in In­dia. “Our party is for re­uni­fi­ca­tion of the Com­mu­nist move­ment. We do be­lieve du­plic­ity of work by var­i­ous com­mu­nist par­ties is mean­ing­less,” CPI Gen­eral Sec­re­tary Su­ravaram Sud­hakar Reddy said here. As for CPM’, he said: “They say the time (for merger) has still not come.”
