CPI condemns killing of CRPF jawans in Chattisgarh

The Central Secretariat of the Communist Party of India has strongly condemned the killing of 25 CRPF jawans in Sukma in Chhattisgarh State. While paying respects to the jawans, the party conveyed its deep condolences to their families.

In a pressnote issued here today, CPI General Secretary S. Sudhakar Reddy said there was an attempt to term it as red terror. “There are several Left parties in Chhattisgarh, including CPI, which are working in defence of tribal people in the region and which do not agree with Maoists politically and ideologically and also with their form of struggle. The governments need to do serious introspection in the larger context and perspective how and why it has been failing to handle the situation in the region. It is surprising to know that CRPF does not have a regular head and intelligence inputs. Otherwise such violence would have been avoided”, he added. (NSS)
