CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on September 21
THE Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the murder of a progressive journalist Santanu Bhowmick by BJP-backed IPTF miscreants in Tripura.
On the heels of the murder of Gauri Lankesh has come yet another killing of a progressive journalist. There is a clear pattern in this – employed by the RSS-BJP particularly in the states were elections are due – of silencing progressive journalists and the dissemination of truth to the people.
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) demands that the culprits be brought to book immediately.
