Cherian as its secretary.[3] The Punjab state units of MCPI and Communist Party Marxist (Punjab) formally merged in December 2005 and a 13-member Punjab State Committee was appointed.[4] Kuldip Singh is the secretary of the Punjab State Committee.[5]

In September 2006, the unification congress of MCPI(U) was held in Chandigarh. 345 delegates from Punjab, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala participated. The rally held ahead of the congress, which gathered around 5000 demonstrators, was addressed by B.N. Reddy, the chief commander of the Telangana armed struggle. The congress elected a control commission consisting of M.D. Gouse, N. Sudershan and Kirpal Singh Hans.[6][7]
