CPI(M) accuses NDA of ‘pro-Israeli’ line

Accusing the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government of double standards and going back on India’s long-standing position on Palestine by adopting a ‘pro-Israeli stance,’ the Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Thursday demanded that the Centre take a “categorical stand opposing the continuing Israeli aggression which has killed innocent civilians.”

The CPI(M) Polit Bureau statement came even as proceedings in the Rajya Sabha were disrupted for the second day in a row as the Opposition demanded a discussion on “the unprecedented spurt in violence in Gaza and West Bank area of Palestine causing the death of scores of civilians.”

Describing this as “completely untenable logic” in the editorial of its latest issue of the party organ People’s Democracy, the CPI(M) said friendly/diplomatic relations had never stopped the Bharatiya Janata Party or Prime Minister Narendra Modi from repeatedly referring to the issue of illegal immigrants from Bangladesh.
