On February 27, the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of Pakistan (CPP) strongly condemned the ongoing bellicose environ and declared that the escalated frenzy of jingoism is undoubtedly "in the best interest of the religious fanatics and the military establishment, but it has nothing to do with the peoples' well-being of both the countries." Pointing out the socio-economic problems related to the system of savage capitalism, the CPP asserted that this uncalled war madness is a pretext for the military to grab mammoth increase in its budget supplies. The statement continued, "The present so-called elected democratic governments in both the countries are two sides of the same coin. Both playing to the gallery of their dirty political ambition and in larger canvas serving the interests of the imperialist masters and arm dealers." The Party called upon Communist Parties, Progressive and Peace Democracy loving forces on both sides to "unanimously resolve to press upon the rulers and the military establishment in their respective countries to shun away the pursuits of war in lieu of peace, jobs and peoples harmony, diverting all the resources towards the welfare of the people instead of dumping it in fire fodder."

wfdy 148The World Federation of Democratic Youth observes with concern the latest developments between India and Pakistan who due to the military operations and activities of armed groups, are facing the danger of a new escalation of the tension.

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on February 28, 2019:

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India demands that the Home Ministry should withdraw the order that empowered the Assam rifles to arrest anybody without warrant and to search any place in Myanmar border districts of Manipur, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Mizoram. This is naturally objected by the Northeastern states, including BJP ruled states. This will be almost expanding the Armed Forces Special Powers Act, which is vehemently opposed by the people. Normalcy should be restored by withdrawing it, instead of keeping in abeyance.

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on February 23, 2019:

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India expresses serious concern at the possibility of evicting 11 lakh families who are living in forest, because of the judgment of Supreme Court. They could not prove their claims for pattas. Poor, marginalized people are unable to prove their hereditary rights. The eviction of about 55 to 60 lakh people will create a huge problem to the nation. Forests should be saved, but most of the forests are getting destroyed by unscrupulous contractors for profits. July 27 date is given by Supreme Court for eviction. Union government should call an all party meeting to discuss and find out an amicable solution.

The party urges upon the authorities to look at the intelligence and security lapses self-critically. Considering the deterioration in the situation of Jammu and Kashmir, the Party reiterates its demand that the Union government should realize that the Jammu and Kashmir problem is a political problem which needs a political solution for which there should be a political process to reach out to all stakeholders through a meaningful dialogue.

While wishing the injured jawans for speedy recovery, the Party expresses its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families of the jawans.
