Dear CPI(M) leadership,
I look forward to the day when you'll wake up and realize that the many hundreds of people who're writing "anonymous" comments with so much malice towards the party happen to be party members, or sympathisers. The blog Pragoti has proved to be a great venting point for many in the party. It's great on your part to call us dissenters "anti-communist" or "anti party". You can continue to live in your fossilised state of minds and take the party just there. If you're dinosaurs then good for you, you can continue to be just that. The youngsters are not. :)
We are sick of your hallowed structures of "democratic centralism" which is nothing but a convenient gagging technique whenever anyone in the party tries to point out the wrongs in the party. It's incredible how it is abused in states like Kerala. Over there, quite evidently, Com. V. S. Achuthanandan enjoys mass support and even the bulk of the support from among the ordinary party members but Pinarayi Vijayan and his men dominate the state committee taking positions that are seen to be pushing the party towards the right. Heh! If V.S does enjoy the bulk of the support then why should Pinarayi and his yesmen run the state committee?
And hence shall whither away democracy. But alas, we the lowly mortals must prove our loyalty to the party by bowing to centralism. And then there's Lakshman Seth, who lives the life of a don, and who was the main culprit in the Nandigram tragedies. He continues to be a whole timer in the party. Obviously in the eyes of our holier than thou leadership his antics don't violate party "discipline". Someone has even pointed out other such shining examples in the leadership of the party who continue to be the leaders we youngsters must look up to (this includes someone in Kolkatta running a porn racket, and a former CM who has clearly rejected socialism and says that workers shouldnt have the right to go on strike!).
But Albeena's dissent violates all forms of party discipline. Ummm... But hold on, where was the dissent? Other than the fact that she upset Com. Pushi??? Unfortunate, considering Pushpendra Grewal is actually among the honest, politically still on the left and not a fossilised mind leader of the party. That he should be so vindictive and intolerant was never expected. Also, I don't support the tone in Albeena's rejoinder. Evidently this has become an unhealthy ego battle between 2 very respected comrades. Good luck CPI(M).
