Gyanvapi Mosque: Court Order Violates Law

CPI (M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on April 9

THE order of a civil court in Varanasi for a survey of the Gyanvapi mosque by the Archaeological Survey of India to ascertain whether a temple existed at the spot is violative of the extant law in the matter.

The Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act enjoins the maintenance of status quo in all such religious places of worship.

The higher judiciary should immediately intervene to nullify the lower court order.

Interest On Small Savings Must Not Be Reduced

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement on April 1, 2021.

THE finance minister’s retraction of the announcement made by the government yesterday of drastically  reducing interest rates on small saving schemes does not fool anybody.  It is clear that due to the ongoing assembly elections in five states this decision has been kept on hold.  This is similar to the dictate imposed by the government on oil retailers  to not hike the prices of petroleum products till the elections are over.

1991 Places of Worship Act Should Remain

CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on March 13

IT is unfortunate that the Supreme Court has opened the way for a re-examination of the Places of Worship (Special Provision) Act, 1991. The Act mandates that the character of all religious places of worship should be maintained as it was on August 15, 1947, and no suit or proceedings shall lie in a court of law with respect to the character of places of worship.

Condemn ED Action in Kerala

CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on March 5

THE Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) action of registering a case against the Kerala Infrastructure Investment Fund Board (KIIFB) is a blatant misuse of the agency as a political tool by the BJP government at the centre.

The finance minister, Nirmala Sitharaman, while addressing a BJP election meeting in Kerala made unfounded allegations against the KIIFB and the LDF government.  Following this, the ED has taken this totally unwarranted action.

Stop this Persecution

CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on February 15

THE arrest of Disha Ravi, a climate activist from Bengaluru, by the Delhi police is an atrocious action which deserves to be condemned in the strongest terms.

The 22 year-old activist has been charged with sedition and criminal conspiracy on the absurd grounds that she had forwarded a “tool-kit” in support of the farmers’ struggle.
