Unnao and Kathua atrocities and increasing sexual assault against minor girls

The 22nd Congress of the CPI(M) expresses its horror and anguish at the unending spate of rapes and murders, especially of children, that have been taking place in the last few months.

A report released on the 18th April, 2018, by CRY, an NGO working on child rights, states that a sexual offence is committed against a child in India every 15 minutes.

Against the Reign of Terror in Tripura

The 22nd Congress of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) condemns the reign of terror led by the RSS-BJP-IPFT alliance against the CPI (M) and Left forces throughout the State of Tripura. The nature of attacks expose that they are centrally planned and fascistic in character. The attacks are directed against the Party and Left forces in order to immobilise our Party organisation and our comrades completely and to prevent them from contacting the working people.

Impressive Rally Concludes the 22nd Congress of the Party

AN impressive rally of Red Shirt volunteers was held on April 22, signaling the culmination of the 22nd Congress of the Communist Party of India (Marxist). The most significant aspect of the rally was it predominantly constituted of young comrades, who are below 25 years of age. More than thousand drummers matched the marching Red Shirt volunteers with their rhythmic beats. Together, they enthralled the citizens of Hyderabad, who had never before witnessed such a spectacle of Red Shirt volunteers march.

Stringent Punishment Must Follow

CPI(M)  Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on April 25.

THE CPI(M) welcomes the judgment holding Asaram and two others guilty of rape of a minor in August 2013. It is a case of a so-called godman exploiting the faith and belief of his followers to sexually exploit a minor and deserves the strongest punishment.

No Interference in Judges Appointment

CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on April 26.

THE collegium of the Supreme Court had forwarded the names of Justice K M Joseph and senior advocate Indu Malhotra to be elevated as judges to the Supreme Court.

After considerable delay the appointment of Indu Malhotra has been cleared. However, the government has not cleared the appointment of Justice K M Joseph. This is an unwarranted intrusion into the selection process of a judge and will affect the independence of the judiciary.
