Press Statement


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


The Polit Bureau strongly criticizes the intemperate statements made by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar regarding Modi Government’s approach to the issue of Pakistan backed terrorists who infiltrate into Jammu & Kashmir. In a widely reported interview he said  that “terrorists will be met by terrorists.” This is a shocking call from the Defence Minister to act outside the law and in fact suggests patronizing ‘state sponsored’ terrorism. It does damage to India’s demand for action against Pakistan backed terrorists. The Prime Minister should make amends through a public correction of this statement.
