Hyderabad, Mar 21 : The Communist Party of India (CPI) has criticised US Speaker Nancy Pelosi's meeting with the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala and termed the Tibet issue an "internal affair" of China.
"The Government should see that their meeting does not turn into an anti-China meeting," said CPI General Secretary A B Bardhan.
"All countries have internal areas where the situation is sometimes disturbed. There should be no interference from anyone," said Bardhan.
Bardhan is in Hyderabad to check the arrangements for the CPI's 20th National Congress, which is scheduled to be held from March 23.
He accused the Congress-led UPA Government of taking India towards a "strategic partnership" with the US, which would harm the country.
"We can be friendly with America, but cannot become its military ally," Bardhan said.
