Press Statement

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) expresses its deep shock and outrage at the dastardly assassination of Ms. Benazir Bhutto.

The CPI(M) strongly condemns this attack. Clearly there are forces who are seeking to destabilise Pakistan and not allow the transition to democracy to succeed. These efforts must be thwarted.
The PB of CPI(M) conveys its heartfelt condolences to Ms. Benazir Bhutto’s family, People’s Party of Pakistan and to the people of Pakistan.
