IIM-A students take Left turn
NEW DELHI/AHMEDABAD: IIM-Ahmedabad students as interns at the CPM office? Sounds implausible, but it might just happen in the new year with future honchos learning first-hand how comrades manage themselves, the success story of West Bengal, not-so-successful stories elsewhere and the dilemma of marrying elements of new economy with their alternate economic vision. 

The idea of an internship with CPM, the first for any political party in the country, came from students during politburo member Sitaram Yechury’s lecture at IIM-A on December 9. 

Yechury had agreed to the idea, little realising that students would actually take it forward. Students, obviously, wanted to know more about the party that lends crucial support to the Congress at the Centre. 

Last week, Yechury received a message from course director Anil Gupta asking whether the party would be interested in taking the students. 

Yechury, currently out of town, is believed to have told Gupta the party would positively consider it. When contacted, IIM-A spokesman Ashok Shah said it was "quite likely". 

He said, "IIM-A is not a school of business but a management school. We are not averse to students going to CPM for internship. There is as much management involved in running of parties as a company. This year, a student from the North-East has shown desire to do internship with an NGO."
