This Plenum of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) notes with concern the grave situation in West Bengal. The last four and a half year misrule has totally discredited both the Trinamul Congress and the government headed by it.
The Central Committee of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the terror attacks at least at six places, in Paris that have already claimed over 145 innocent lives. The recent spate of terror attacks in Baghdad, Beirut and now Paris appear to be related to US/NATO military interventions.
The fact that three heavily armed terrorists could cross the fenced and fortified border with ease and indiscriminately fire attacking a police station, traveling some distance to mount an attack on an army camp exposes the serious lacuna in our security apparatus. These need to be corrected with great urgency.
Media reports on the prior warnings concerning a possible terror attack in Pune are indeed disturbing as these attacks have taken place despite this. It is imperative in the interests of the country’s internal security that such lapses be identified and rectified urgently.
