AGARTALA, April 23, 2018: Sitaram Yechury has been re-elected as the General Secretary of CPI(M) on the last day of party’s 22nd Congress yesterday, which was held in Hyderabad.

Though there had been speculations that the Ex-Chief Minister of Tripura, Manik Sarkar was among the runner ups for the highest post (General Secretary)  in the party organisation as being close to Prakash Karat (Ex-General Secretary of CPI(M) ) who, until today is considered to be the key of power in the party but it seems Sitaram Yechury has taken over the Karat lobby.

Yechury was first elected as the CPI(M) General Secretary in 2015.


The Communist Party of India (Marxist) had re-elected 95-member Central Committee at the party congress.
The party also elected 17 member Politburo in which Manik Sarkar is also a part of the member, the announcements were made by Manik Sarkar himself in front of the mammoth rally of CPI(M) activists in Hyderabad.
Apart from Manik Sarkar, Aghore Deb Barma, Bijan Dhar, Badal Choudhury, Gautam Das and Rama Das were also re-elected as members of  CPI(M) Central Committee. Tapan Chakraborty and Jitendra Choudhury were made new members of the Central Committee.
