On CPI(M)’s Review of the 2021 West Bengal Elections


Two months after the announcement of the West Bengal poll results, CPI(M) state secretary and polit bureau member Surjya Kanta Mishra addressed a Facebook live programme on 7 July. His nearly two-hour-long address came in the wake of two months of organisational review of the West Bengal poll outcome at different levels of the party organisation and mass organisations led by the party. The address thus can be seen as a public articulation of the CPI(M)’s essential election review.
