In a letter submitted to the party on Tuesday, Bimol said its central leadership had deviated from its motto

Former Workers’ Party general secretary and politburo member Bimol Bishwas has resigned from the party and withdrew his primary membership.

In a letter submitted to the party on Tuesday, Bimol said its central leadership had deviated from its motto. 

He further said he had spoken out against the deviation on several occasions, and had earlier asked to resign from the party at meetings of the politburo on April 24, 2017 and then again on April 26, 2019

“The current Workers’ Party core leadership speaks of Marxism and Leninism, but acts against these ideologies,” Bimol said in the letter.

“The Workers’ Party has now become a part of the ruling Awami League-led 14-party alliance, with a view to becoming ministers and lawmakers,” he claimed.

Bimol added that unity between communist and left-leaning sectors of society needs to be built on the struggle of the labour class.

The party has been allowing membership for anyone in Dhaka, Barisal, Rajshahi and other districts, ignoring provisions of the party constitution, he claimed.

There is a difference of opinion between him and the party regarding internal relations, funding, and cadre policies, the letter said.

Claiming that the party is being run in an undemocratic way, Bimol said he is withdrawing his primary membership because of ideological, political and organizational differences with the party.
