We are herewith releasing the full text of the letter addressed by CPI(M) General Secretary, Sitaram Yechury to Prime Minister Narendra Modi lodging protest against India’s abstention at the UNHRC on the Resolution on the Palestinian issue. This letter was sent by mail today.
The Polit Bureau of the CPI (M) denounces the Israeli attacks on Palestinians. The air raids carried out by Israel on the Gaza strip led to the death of many Palestinian citizens.
The announcement of a “strategic partnership” with Israel in the joint statement, which is a strategic alliance, amounts to a virtual abandonment of the Palestinian cause.
The 1.7 million people of Gaza continue to remain under a brutal siege, with the Israeli stranglehold affecting even basic necessities such as food and medicine. Reports available indicate that hospitals are running out of medicine. Power and water supplies have been cut to the Gaza residents.
