Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) issued the following
statement on May 22, 2006.
Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the attack on a Youth Congress
rally in Srinagar on May 21 which killed seven persons and injured 20 others.
This terrorist attack by the extremist groups has been timed on the eve of the
roundtable meeting on Jammu & Kashmir to be attended by the Prime Minister
at Srinagar. These groups are against any political settlement through peaceful
negotiations. It is meant to also warn the separatist political organisations
not to participate in a dialogue with the government.
Polit Bureau appeals to the people and all political forces of Jammu &
Kashmir not to be deterred by such attacks. The state administration has to take
all necessary steps to prevent an escalation of such attacks in the coming days.
