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


The Supreme Court judgement reinstating the CBI Director Alok Verma shows how the Modi government has subverted and subordinated every single rule and norm in the functioning  of institutions like the CBI, to suit its narrow political interests.


The judgement is a strong indictment of the Modi government and specifically the Prime Minister himself as the Department of Personnel and Training under which the CBI functions, is in his charge.


If the Prime Minister had a conscience, he should have resigned.  This is one more reason why he and his government must be removed from office by the people in the forthcoming elections.
