The Workers Party of Ireland sends warm comradely greetings to the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and extends its best wishes and solidarity to the CPIM for the 2019 Indian general election for the 17th Lok Sabha.

This is a crucial election at a time of increasing threat to the secular state and growing communal division. The restraints on the functioning of Parliament, interference in the judiciary, attacks on freedom of expression, curtailment of the rights of the working class and poor farmers, attacks on secularism including the communalisation of education and extreme violence against citizens and progressive forces, including increasingly violent assaults against women, religious minorities, Dalits and others are symptoms of an expanding menace to democratic rights and the secular state.

THE 2019 GENERAL ELECTIONS to the Parliament are going to be very crucial and critical for our secular democratic republic, its future and to our constitutional ethos. The experience of the BJP led NDA government with Mr. Narendra Modi as Prime Minister has been one of misrule and misgovernance of national resources resulting in despair for the people. The very Constitution and the founding principles of republic such as Secularism, Socialism, Federalism, Equality, Liberty, Fraternity and Justice to all sections of society are under a sustained attack. The Constitution of the country is being undermined, questioned and subverted. Democracy is in peril.

CPI General Secretary S Sudhakar Reddy issued the following press communiqué at a press meet in New Delhi on March 8, 2019 after the conclusion of the two-day National Executive meeting held in New Delhi on March 6 and 7:

The National Executive discussed in detail the present economic and political situation in the country as well as the role of the secular, democratic forces in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections of 2019. The meeting unanimously underlined the need for ousting the anti-people, anti-working class, divisive and communal RSS-BJP controlled NDA government led by Narendra Modi. The meeting also noted in unequivocal terms the urgent need to save the Indian economy which is in deep crisis and save our Constitution from the clutches of the fascistic forces which have surrendered the economy and the country to the forces of neo-liberalism and anti-nationalism. The meeting held that uprooting of the Modi government, replacing it with a secular democratic progressive government in which the Left has an enhanced say is the need of the hour. Swapan Banerjee presided over the National Executive meeting of the CPI.

wfdy 148The World Federation of Democratic Youth observes with concern the latest developments between India and Pakistan who due to the military operations and activities of armed groups, are facing the danger of a new escalation of the tension. The peoples of India and Pakistan have experienced the bloodsheds of war in the past and they know that in these wars there is no winner people but only suffering peoples and satisfied ruling classes.

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on February 28, 2019:

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India demands the Pakistan government, to release and return Wing Commander Abhinandan, immediately.

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India demands that the Home Ministry should withdraw the order that empowered the Assam rifles to arrest anybody without warrant and to search any place in Myanmar border districts of Manipur, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Mizoram. This is naturally objected by the Northeastern states, including BJP ruled states. This will be almost expanding the Armed Forces Special Powers Act, which is vehemently opposed by the people. Normalcy should be restored by withdrawing it, instead of keeping in abeyance.

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on February 23, 2019:

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India expresses serious concern at the possibility of evicting 11 lakh families who are living in forest, because of the judgment of Supreme Court. They could not prove their claims for pattas. Poor, marginalized people are unable to prove their hereditary rights. The eviction of about 55 to 60 lakh people will create a huge problem to the nation. Forests should be saved, but most of the forests are getting destroyed by unscrupulous contractors for profits. July 27 date is given by Supreme Court for eviction. Union government should call an all party meeting to discuss and find out an amicable solution.

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on February 15, 2019:

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India condemns the horrific terror attack on CRPF jawans at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir. It is reported that more than 40 jawans were killed.

The party urges upon the authorities to look at the intelligence and security lapses self-critically. Considering the deterioration in the situation of Jammu and Kashmir, the Party reiterates its demand that the Union government should realize that the Jammu and Kashmir problem is a political problem which needs a political solution for which there should be a political process to reach out to all stakeholders through a meaningful dialogue.

While wishing the injured jawans for speedy recovery, the Party expresses its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families of the jawans.
