The most significant agent of radical politics in Meghalaya is the CPI which is one of the oldest political parties in the country. From its very inception, the CPI claims to have championed the cause of the tribal people and stood for safeguarding their identity. Nevertheless, the CPI has not been able to achieve any significant breakthrough in the politics of Meghalaya. The CPI has contested all the assembly elections held in Meghalaya so far without achieving any success. This gives rise to a number of questions, viz., what is the relevance of the CPI in the political scenario of Maghalaya? What are the main impediments faced by the party in pursuing its radical politics in Meghalaya? And so on. The book examines some of these questions for an understanding of the reasons behind the failure of radical politics in Meghalaya and also seeks to assess whether such politics has any future prospects in the state.
