It is the Left alone that can ideologically challenge and defeat the RSS and can provide an alternative. Our struggle should combine forces - all progressive, secular, democratic sections of the society - to uproot the discriminatory regime and cleanse the society off the hateful ideological influence of the RSS. We must not forget that the Left in co-operation with other secular, democratic and regional parties is equipped to play that role and as such, it is our historic responsibility. CPI has been consistently saying that reunification of the Communist movement on a principled basis is the need of the emerging situation.

This is the challenge before us, to prove that we are dangerous for the RSS. We should engage in introspection on how to achieve the unity needed to politically and ideologically defeat the RSS. The ongoing 23rd Congress of the CPI-M and the upcoming 24th  Congress of the CPI in October 2022 are the best platforms for us to introspect, discuss and debate all those issues and come up with concrete actionable programmes corresponding to the realities of our times.
I am certain that the deliberations of the 23rd Congress of the CPI-M will contribute in the consolidation of Left unity and popular struggles against the RSS- BJP combine.
