Assault On The Federal Structure


The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement on November 30


THE decision of the central government to send a central team to West Bengal bypassing the state government is an assault on the federal structure mandated by the constitution. It is unfortunate and regrettable that the central government should succumb to the unreasonable and politically motivated demand of the Trinamool Congress for sending a team.


The politically motivated demand by the Trinamool Congress is against the spirit of the constitution and amounts to a gross interference in the affairs of the state government. It further contravenes several judgments of the Supreme Court on this question.


The Trinamool Congress in collaboration with Maoists is creating a law and order situation in West Bengal by murdering CPI(M) and Left cadres and blame the Left Front government to cover up its nefarious activities.


The Polit Bureau appeals to all the democratic forces and the people to oppose the move of the central government and the Trinamool Congress which violates the spirit of the Indian constitution.
