Extend assistance to Palestanian: CPI(M) to UPA

Written by: Staff

Srinagar, May 9: The Communist Party of India (M) has expressed resentment over Isreal, United States and European Union's decision to stop all funds to the Palestinian Authority.

It urged upon the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government to immediately come out against the financial blockade of the Palestinian people and extend concrete assistance to them.

The state secretary of the CPI(M) Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami in a statement issued here said today, this decision had been taken after Hamas won the elections and formed the government in Palestian.

Israel has halted the monthly transfer to the Palestinian Authority of around 50 million dollars which it collects on behalf of the Palestinians.

These funds were going for payment of salaries of the government employees and funding other essential services.

Mr Tarigami said the policy of blocking the funds and starving entire people into submission was immoral and illegal.

He said Palestinian people could not be punished for exercising their democratic right to elect a government of their choice.

Mr Tarigami said such anti-people moves, if not opposed tooth and nail, were likely to be experienced elsewhere including Jammu and Kashmir with the changing political scenario.
