The Manipur State Committee of Communist Party of India (Marxist) has extended support to the CPI (M) Politburo, demanding the Narendra Modi government to respond to the allegations leveled by former Jammu and Kashmir governor Satya Pal Malik.
The state committee stated that the allegations hurled by the former governor against the Modi government regarding the Pulwama terrorist attack that claimed the lives of 40 CRPF jawans was a serious matter which should not be taken lightly.
In a recent interview, Malik lashed out at the Modi government for allegedly failing to protect its jawans and stated that the attack could have been avoided if the government had aided.
“The CRPF soldiers asked for aircraft but the government refused; Pulwama attack happened only due to the incompetence of the government,” he said in the interview.
He also stated the Prime Minister had ordered him to stay silent on the lapses of the government.
The release also added that the governor’s allegations regarding the abrogation of Article 370 and 35 A from the Indian Constitution and the dissolving of Jammu and Kashmir into Union Territories also called for serious investigation
It stated that the Modi government’s silence on these issues had grave implications for the national security and integrity of India. The state CPI committee also demanded the Modi government to respond to the allegations in the interest of national security and Constitutional sanctity.
