THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: With many delegates of the 4-day conference pointing it out that the party has lost touch with the local people at many places, the 40-point agenda finalised for the next three years seeks to transform the state with the participation of the people.
Boosting govt missions
After the literacy campaign and people's plan campaign, the CPM now plans to launch the next leg of people's participatory programme to boost the government's four ground-breaking missions under Nava Kerala Mission: Life, Education, Ardram and Haritha Keralam. To begin with, the party will construct 2,000 houses for the homeless.
Cleaning of water bodies
Ponds, streams and water bodies will be cleaned up in 2000 centres and a river in each district will be cleaned up during this year. All local committees of the party will take up organic vegetable cultivation and group farming in a big way.
Better school facilities
The party local committees will join the activities related to enhancing facilities in government and aided schools.
Make hospitals healthier
On the health front, each area committee will contribute in improving the facilities in 209 hospitals.
20, 000 palliative centres
CPM will focus on palliative care in a significant way. As part of the project, the party has decided to establish 2000 palliative centres. Ten persons will be trained in palliative care in each local committee and 20,000 palliative care volunteers will be raised during the next two years.
A mass cultural movement will be built against the communal and divisive forces and their attempts to polarize the state on religious lines. The incidents right from the assassination of Gandhi and the contemporary incidents of communal polarization will be discussed widely to educate and crate awareness.
The party is also entering a new area of coaching. Youngsters preparing for competitive exams including PSC tests will be provided help through special coaching classes to be organized by local committees.
Training to elected representatives
The focus will also be on training the elected representatives of local bodies enable them to organize grama sabhas in better way and intervene in the local level projects, schemes effectively. Through these activities the CPM wants to challenge other parties to take up similar pro-people initiatives.
The conference has asked all top leaders to ensure that they conduct house-to-house visits in their respective area at least once in every six months. The party teams should include politburo members, state secretariat, state committee members and local leaders.
