After amusement park, CPM forays into luxury hotel sector

The corporate brochure distributed among potential investors describes the Hotel project as
“A luxury hotel in Calicut (now Kozhikode) with star facilities and mesmerising ambience, which will cater to the requirements of international and our own high flying business travellers,”.
The rich corporate is none other but the company "Kozhikode District Co-operative Travel and Tourism Society" that the CPM recently floated for the purpose the running this luxury hotel. The company has already acquired 58 cents of land from an ailing industrial unit near the historic Mananchira Square in Kozhikode and is in talks for the adjacent 2.5 acres of land.

Yes you heard it right they aquired land form an "ailing industrial unit" for bourgeoisie purpose

The Kozhikode District Co-operative Travel and Tourism Society is headed by a retired city police commissioner but it has several CPM leaders, including city mayor M Bhaskaran, member of parliament M Sati Devi, party’s district unit secretary T P Ramakrishnan, and private secretaries of Tourism and Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan and Co-operation Minister G Sudhakaran on its board.

Who says CPM guys donot have luxury. I am sure CPM Minister Sreemathi would say "staying in a luxury hotel is not a bourgeois concept and the proletariat also needed it"
