Press Statement
The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
Stop Attacks in West Bengal
The Polit Bureau strongly condemns the killing of CPI(M) leader, Jiten Nandi, a member of the Zonal Committee of the Party in Garbeta in West Midnapore district. This murder perpetrated by TMC men is the first death in the post-poll violence. Reports are pouring in of widespread attacks on Party offices, houses of cadres and supporters in different parts of West Bengal.
The TMC leadership must fulfill the commitment they have made that there will be no violence against political opponents.
The State administration should act immediately to check the violence to stop these attacks and apprehend the culprits.
