CPI In The Red


cpi-in-the-red

Perhaps the oldest political party in India after the Congress is the Communist Party of India, CPI. While it often was a sort of prince during the UPA rule, now it has become a pauper. Such is the penury that it is hardly able clear the expenses at the national headquarters. It has been a long-standing tradition of the party that anyone elected as an MP or MLA would deposit their entire monthly emoluments with the HQ. From this central fund, the party would give Rs 13,000 per month to such MPs, MLAs or full-time workers to meet with their personal expenses. But over the last few years, the number of MPs or MLAs from the party has drastically reduced. So where will the money come from now? The party’s only fallback is its Kerala unit, but the money it sends is still not enough. So now senior leaders like D Raja have stopped going to the office and are working out of home.
