Press Statement
The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the criminal and uncivilized act of a Shiv Sena MP Rajan Vichare, in the presence of other MPs of his party, of force feeding a person who was observing a fast for Ramzan. The defence of the Shiv Sena has been proved to be a lie by evidence broadcast in the media which shows that the MP was told by the victim that he was on fast.
The Modi Government should not overlook or condone this type of objectionable behaviour. It must immediately prosecute the Shiva Sen MP, arrest him under the law and also suspend him from Parliament.
