New Delhi, Sep 28 (UNI) The Communist Party of India (Marxist) today extended support to the people of Myanmar who have been struggling for restoration of democracy.
The mass protests in past ten days were an expression of deep desire of the people for a democratic system and a better life, said a statement issued by the CPI(M) Polit Bureau.
''The CPI(M) condemns the repression unleashed by the military government on peaceful protest marches. It appeals to all democratic forces in India to stand by the people of Myanmar in their heroic struggle.'' The Central government should utilise all political and diplomatic channels to impress upon the military government to cease repression and to initiate talks for a democratic transition,'' said the CPI(M) after a Polit Bureau meeting in Kolkata.
