The State Secretariat of the CPI(M) has called the Haryana government's decision to constitute an Enquiry Commission inadequate. The Haryana government has constituted a commission to find out the lapses by the government officials in dealing with the incidents of wide spread loot, arson and violence in the State during the Jat reservation agitation. The party has termed it to be an exercise shielding the failure of the State government and the negative role played by the ruling party.

The UDF government unleashed unprecedented storm of violence inside and outside the Kerala Legislative Assembly, injuring hundreds of people including MLAs, in a shameful attempt to get the Budget for financial year 2015-2016 placed in the Assembly by tainted finance minister K M Mani. Throwing all legislative norms and decorum to the winds, K M Mani, who is accused of various corruption allegations, read out the first page of the Budget when the Speaker was not present on the dais. Mani was standing in the fourth row of treasury bench, guarded by UDF legislators and a large number watch and ward staff.
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) expresses its grave concern at the escalating violence in Assam which is taking a communal turn and is spreading from the Bodo Territorial Administered District and Kokhrajar to neighbouring districts and areas. It is indeed deeply disturbing that over 35 people have lost their lives, several are untraced, over 50 villages have been burnt, thousands have been forced to flee from their homes. Tragically the insecurity is so high among all communities that even those in relief camps do not feel safe.
This is a monumental failure of the Congress led Government in Assam which refused to take timely action allowing the tensions to increase from the first incident on July 6th. Even earlier the warning signs of distrust and tensions among different communities was ignored. The Central Government must explain why it too delayed its response to the violence.
