The stand of the Communist parties comes under the spotlight whenever a conflict between India and China arises. Now, given the heightened tensions between the two countries, what is the position of the CPI? Party general secretary D Raja explains.
The three Cs that were actually done away with by the BJP dispensation were: Consensus, Cooperation and Compromise, says Shashi Tharoor.
Jammu and Kashmir has been under a security clampdown since the abrogation of Article 370 on August 5, that accorded the state a special status.
Three people have been arrested here on charges of putting up posters against the party leadership. They are members of the All-India Youth Federation, the youth wing of the CPI.
D. Raja is the tallest leader of the Communist Party of India, and Annie is the feisty leader of its women’s wing.
Raja, the first Dalit to be appointed the CPI chief, says it is a very challenging time and the responsibility on him is enormous.
