Press Statement

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

 Jaipur Blasts Condemned

 The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the horrific bomb blasts in Jaipur city which has led to the loss of sixty lives and 200 injured. This terrorist attack was designed to inflict the maximum casualties in the crowded areas of the city.

The modus operandi of the explosions reveal a common pattern with earlier attacks in other cities. The security agencies have to take all necessary steps to uncover the network of groups behind these outrages.

The design behind this attack is also to disrupt communal peace and harmony. We appeal to the people of Jaipur to remain calm and united. The CPI(M) extends its heartfelt condolences to all the families who have suffered a grievous loss. No effort should be spared for medical treatment of the injured. The state government should take steps to provide relief and compensation to those who have lost their family members.
