Press Statement

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

 On Bomb Blasts in Agartala

 The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the forces who have perpetrated the bomb blasts in Agartala city in Tripura. In the four blasts, 73 people were injured and some are in a critical condition. The Polit Bureau conveys its heartfelt sympathy to all those who became victims of the blasts and their families.

The Left Front government of Tripura has registered significant success in tackling the extremist groups who used to resort to terrorist violence. The bomb explosions must be seen as an attempt to destabilize the situation.

 The Central government should extend all help to the state government in tracking down the culprits behind this attack especially in view of the fact that Tripura has an international border on the three sides of the state.
