Memorandum on Public Distribution System in Delhi
Dear Shri Khan,
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) expresses its deep concern at the continuing attacks on people from the North-East in Delhi. After the death of the Arunachal student Nido Taniam, several other incidents have occurred including the rape of a minor girl from Manipur and physical attacks on other young men.
The defeat is more resounding as the Congress could not dislodge the BJP from the governments in Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh where the latter has been in power for ten years. The misrule and corruption of the BJP governments in these two states did not lead the people to opt for the Congress
