BARDHAMAN: Battling financial problems after being out of power in West Bengal, the CPM has leased out a party office building for Rs. 15,000 per month to run the local unit.

CPM committee members at Lodgepara in Guskara Municipality's Ward Number 7 in Purba Bardhaman district have leased out the three-storey building comprising three rooms, two meeting halls, bathrooms and kitchens.

The building - Rabin Sen Bhawan - was inaugurated on May 1, 1999.

"We have decided to lease out the office and we will get Rs. 15,000 on a monthly basis," CPM committee secretary Narayan Chandra Ghosh told PTI.

Renting out a party office building by the CPM is surprising as it had ruled West Bengal uninterrupted for 34 years before being ousted by the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC in 2011 and defeated again by it in 2016.

In the formidable Left citadel in West Bengal for over three decades, Bardhaman was considered a CPM stronghold.

In Purba Bardhaman district, the TMC has 15 MLAs and the CPM has only one at present.

The decision to rent out the building was unanimous and all 422 members of the committee, who had mobilised funds for constructing the building 18 years ago, supported it, Ghosh said.

He said the deal has been finalised and a promoter named Swapan Pal will open a coaching centre at the party office.

"It was getting tough for us to maintain the office, pay electricity bills and salary to party whole-timers," he said.

The money generated from rent will be used to run the party locally, Ghosh said adding that the local committee will operate from the party's zonal committee office in Guskara.

Pal, who rented the office, has removed the photographs of Marxist icons Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin and started renovating the building.

The decision has provided an opportunity to rivals to mock the CPM.

Local TMC leaders said the CPM has lost its mass base and has nobody to sit in the party office.

Sandip Nandy, BJP's Purba Bardhaman district president, said state president Dilip Ghosh had predicted that the CPM would have to close shop one day.
