The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the action of the Madhya Pradesh police and administration in preventing the Chief Minister of Kerala, Comrade Pinarayi Vijayan, from attending a felicitation function in Bhopal.
In the light of these concerns, the Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) demands that a judicial enquiry headed by a sitting judge be constituted to conduct a thorough investigation into the entire episode. The Chief Minister has announced that an enquiry would be conducted by the NIA. Such an enquiry would neither be credible nor acceptable.
Notwithstanding the fulsome praise for the one-sided and unequal relations with the United States in the corporate media, the real interests of the people of India are not served by such a relationship. What is required is a Indo-US relationship which is based on equality and mutual interest.
