THODUPUZHA: CPI's Idukki district council meeting has come up with stern criticism of their ministers, the CPM and even favoured a move away from the front. The general feeling in the district council was that there is no benefit to the party if it sticks to the left front. There is also an opinion that there is nothing wrong with CPI leaving the LDF and joining the UDF in Kerala as it is with the Congress in the INDIA bloc in national politics. It was assessed in the meeting that when the party was earlier with the Congress, it had two chief ministers in Kerala, but after joining the CPM, the party had to only bear losses.

"The reason for failure in the district is land problems. The revenue department is responsible in this regard. Kerala Congress coming to the front did not help. Despite defeat, CPM gives too much importance to Kerala Congress. Even in the Kerala Congress region, there was no increase in votes for the front. Even in Minister Roshy Augustine's constituency, there was no increase in votes," the coucil opined.

There was sharp criticism of the chief minister and the cabinet in the council. "The Chief Minister and the ministers have lost their public face. While Narendra Modi tries to get closer to the people, the Chief Minister alienates the people. The finance department is causing the CPI's departments to lose their image," the council opined.

The district executive and council meetings were held for two days. Change of front didn't come up in the district executive. The district secretary informed that the demand in the district council can be conveyed to the state council. There was a general thought in the meeting that Annie Raja should have been considered for the Rajya Sabha seat and voices were raised against the decision to give it to PP Suneer.
