The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
On Emergency In Pakistan
The developments in Pakistan are a matter of deep concern. The imposition of the emergency and virtual martial law are harmful for the country. The people of Pakistan are overwhelmingly in favour of a democratic set-up.
