The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
On Serial Blasts in Uttar Pradesh
The CPI (M) strongly condemns the serial bomb blasts in Faizabad, Varanasi and Lucknow. The CPI (M) expresses sorrow at the loss of innocent lives and extends sympathy with the families of those dead and injured.
It is a matter of grave concern that terrorist elements have targetted the courts, knowing well that thousands of people would be present there. No effort should be spared to unearth the conspiracy behind the dastardly acts of terror and punish the culprits. Intelligence agencies should be strengthened to uncover such nefarious designs and take preventive action.
