The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:


The Polit Bureau strongly condemns the efforts made by two persons claiming allegiance to an RSS outfit to disrupt a press conference being addressed by General Secretary Sitaram Yechury at the end of the two-day meeting of the Polit Bureau.


Masquerading as journalists these persons tried to enter the hall where the conference was being held and started shouting anti-CPI(M) slogans. They were immediately apprehended by CPI(M) workers present there and handed over to the police posted there.


This is typical of the RSS methodology of seeking to browbeat and intimidate the opposition. Such tactics will not be allowed to succeed.
