Communist Party of India-Marxist

(CPI-M)
   Formed by dissenting members of the Communist Party of India (CPI) in 1964, the Communist Party of India-Marxist is now the largest and most successful party advocating communism in the country. The CPI-M was heavily critical of the CPI’s “revisionism” in relation to the 1962 Sino–Indian War and has maintained an orthodox approach to Marxism since, with an 85-member central committee still in place to elect an all-powerful 17-strong Politburo. In the general election of May 2004, the CPI-M polled over 5 percent of the vote giving it 43 members in the Indian National Congress.
