CPIML Delegation attends 10th Congress of Revolutionary Workers’ Party of Bangladesh

The Tenth Congress of Revolutionary Workers’ Party of Bangladesh was held in Dhaka from 6 to 9 January. A four-member delegation of CPI(ML)comprising Comrades Kartik Pal, Subhendu Sen, Meena Pal and Basudev Bose attended the Congress to express solidarity with the communist movement and the people of Bangladesh. A message of greetings sent from the Central Committee conveyed warm greetings to the delegates attending the RWPB Congress and wished the Congress every success. Senior CPNUML leader Comrade Ishwar Pokhrel was also present as an international guest. The Congress felt that the next general elections scheduled early next year should be held under the supervision of an interim caretaker government as previous elections held under the Awami League dispensation have been marked by massive irregularities. The Congress was preceded by a public meeting and procession attended by representatives of various opposition and Left parties active in Bangladesh. The Congress called for a powerful mass movement for restoration of secular democracy, strengthening of people’s unity and guarantee of people’s rights. The Congress elected a 25-member Central Committee with Comrade Saiful Haq reelected as General Secretary.
