CPI(M) Central Committee rejects Yechury's draft resolution that proposed a Left front

"Let's go to the party congress", said Yechuri in the press conference while answering queries from the media. "But this is a draft political resolution of the party and the final decision will be taken at the Party Congress, the highest decision-making authority", Mr. Yechury said.

The discussion made a rift inside the party with two groups led by present party general secretary Sitaram Yechury and former general secretary Prakash Karat.

While Yechuri faction in its draft wanted secular forces (Congress) to join in the fight against BJP through a front, Karat faction wanted the party to achieve its primary objective of defeating BJP without entering into electoral alliance or front with ruling class parties like Congress.

Talking to reporters after the concluding session of the CC meet, Yechury said, "The CC has voted in favour of a draft political resolution during today's meeting and has adopted it with certain amendments". The CPI-M central committee meeting is now underway in Kolkata, and the single point of discussion now is should they engage in any tie up with the Congress.

Turkish troops enter Afrin region in northern Syria
The Syrian government condemned what it called "Turkish aggression on Afrin", Syrian state media reported on January 20. But the United States is backing the YPG in Syria, seeing it as an effective partner in the fight against ISIS.

Vijayan and Balakrishnan had early this month categorically emphasised that under no circumstances, should the CPI (M) have any sort of adjustments with the Congress, even while declaring the BJP as the main enemy.

With this, the battle has now shifted to the party congress to be held in Hyderabad in April, where an alternative resolution may be moved by at least 12 state units reiterating the need for a broader political understanding with the Congress in order to defeat the BJP in 2019. "In Tripura, the basic fight is with the BJP-RSS combine, which is communicating with extremist forces like IPFT (Indigenous People's Front of Tripura)".

It expects a bigger challenge from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Trinamool Congress-both trying to expand their footprint in the landlocked state where the Left has been in power since 1993.

The party recently said that it was holding talks with the BJP for a pre-poll alliance. He also ruled out possibility of an electoral understanding with Congress as far as the Assembly election in Tripura is concerned. "BJP has launched four-pronged attack on the country, and forthcoming elections will be BJP's Waterloo in their blitzkrieg of victories", the CPM leader said.
