New Delhi, Aug 18 (UNI) The Communist Party of India (CPI) has welcomed political developments in Pakistan that led to resignation of President Pervez Mushrraf today.
The party, in a statement issued here, said it is a welcome development for the people of Pakistan who have been fighting for restoration of democratic and civilian rule in the country.
''If there is any apprehension with some sections in the high echelons of power in New Delhi about a political vacuum in Pakistan, it is unwarranted and incorrect. It shows lack of faith in the political process in Pakistan while a sober and objective assessment is necessary,'' it said.
The party hoped that the democratic process will continue in Pakistan and its relations with India will continue to improve unhampered.
