The Polit Bureau took note of the serious havoc caused by the floods that have occurred in various parts of the country, especially in East and northern parts of the country, owing to heavy rains. Assam and Bihar are the worst affected.
We have to understand that there can be no solution to the Kashmir problem without taking into account the feelings and aspirations of the people of Kashmir. ..The Centre should spell out that there can be a dialogue process without any side setting pre-conditions. It would be better if the Prime Minister appoints a senior political figure who can monitor this process.
The CPI(M) is of the opinion that only by recognizing the special status of the state and assuring the Kashmiri people of their identity that a solution can be found. This requires a new political framework in which the bedrock is maximum autonomy.
