Poll debacle in Kerala, CPI(M) state secretariat promises corrective measures

CPI(M) won only one seat in Kerala in the Lok Sabha elections 2024

CPIM suffers massive defeat in Kerala Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan

The CPI(M) state secretariat announced on Tuesday that the party will make necessary corrective measures in the context that it had a massive defeat in Kerala. The ruling party, with 99 MLAs, lost all but one seat in the state. The massive defeat does suggest that there was a strong anti-incumbency against the Pinarayi Vijayan government in the state.

In a statement released, the CPI(M) secretariat said that it will take necessary corrective measures and make a comeback just as it had done in the past. 

"In the last Lok Sabha elections, the LDF secured only one seat in the state. There have been instances in the past where the party did not win a single seat. During such times, the party adopted a strategy of thorough evaluation and necessary corrections,” said the statement released by the state secretariat, which also noted that because of these corrective actions, the LDF won Local Self-Government Elections in 2020 and assembly elections in 2021.

The party also observed that the Lok Sabha results in Kerala highlight the importance of 'conceptual, organizational, and ideological intervention against the growth of communal forces.' The election verdict will be examined thoroughly, and necessary corrections will be made moving forward, said the state secretariat.
