New Delhi, Mar 09 (UNI) A number of political leaders and organisations, including, the two Left outfits Communist Party of India(CPI) and the All India Forward Bloc, today condemned this morning's attack on the CPI-M headquarters by the BJP and RSS workers here, and expressed full solidarity with the party in countering the ''fascist'' act.

As the news of the attack, which left four party Central Committee members injured and property destroyed, spread out, RJD member Lalu Prasad, Samajwadi Party chief and Chairman of UNPA Mulayam Singh Yadav, UNPA leader and Telugu Desam chief Chandra Babu Naidu called up CPI(M) lader Sitaram Yechuri and expressed their full support to the party in its fight against the attackers.

Congress leaders Ambika Soni and MP Narain Swamy visited the CPI(M) headquarters here to express their solidarity with the party.

Mr Lalu Prasad was likely to hold a press conference to express his views on the whole issue.

In a statement here, CPI said, ''The attack on CPI-M has once again made it clear that the Sangh Parivar uses fascist measures to meet the challenges of its opponents.'' In place of winning support on the basis of its ideology and politics, the RSS-BJP had been organising ''terrorist like'' attack on the Left cadres, and a number of Left cadres had been killed in such attacks, the CPI alleged.

The party demanded that the government take stringent action against those involved in vandalism.

The All India Forward Bloc said the ''fascist'' attack was a challenge to the democratic principles.

''It has once again exposed the ugly fascist face of the Sangh Parivar,'' General Secretary of the Bloc Debabrata Biswas said in a statement.

In a democratic set-up, attacking political partry leaders and destruction of party properties could not be justified at any cost.

Mr Biswas said the clash between CPI(M) and in Kerala was a local issue and the state Government was capable of handling it.

The attack was said to be a sequel to the bloody clashes between the workers of the two political outfits in Kerala over the week.
