Not changing with time - Is it the cause for the Left parties' failure in India?Their ideology is good. They fight always for the cause of the people. Many of them are not after power or money. The element of corruption that creeped into many political parties has not affected them. To be fair, there are no major allegations levelled against them. They are none other than the Communist parties in India. They have inspired many youth of the country to fight against the dominance of the Landlords in the earlier days in the tribal/rural part of the country. Their quotes on the walls used to inspire the rural masses that led to have their strong base in many areas. Yet they never rose to power except to become the main Opposition party in the initial years of the post-independent India.
There need to be an introspection by them. Countries like China and Russia felt that they are susceptible for a change and accepted the change with the time. While the Indian Left parties which inherited the Marxist/Lenin ideology appear to have not learnt any leaf from them. Slowly their influence seems to be getting eroded with the loss of Tripura in the N-E region. Once the main political parties in India used to look at them for support while the scene has shifted where they are trying to survive with the support of some other regional parties. What could be the reason? What do you say on this?
