From the Archives (May 13, 1969): Swatantra urges ban on Communist Parties

The Swatantra Party leaders to-day [May 12, New Delhi] urged the Union Government to impose a ban on all the three Communist parties in the country. Mr. Y B. Chavan, Home Minister, to-day [May 12] held talks – the first in the series – with the Swatantra Party leaders on the question of taking action against unsocial elements, parties and individuals who were creating a security problem. Mr. N. G. Ranga, leader of the Swatantra Party in the Lok Sabha, Mr. Dahyabhai Patel and Mr. M. R. Masani told Mr. Chavan that the first thing the Government must do was to ban all the three Communist parties, namely the C.P.I., C.P.I. (M.) and the Naxalites who had formed a new Communist party based on the theory of armed insurrection.
