The Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) now in session in New Delhi adopted the following resolution:
West Bengal Martyrs
The Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) salutes the 124 martyrs who have been killed in the pre and post poll violence unleashed by the anti-Left forces in various parts of West Bengal between March 3 and October 22, 2009. More than half of them were killed by Maoist gangs. 120 of them belonged to the CPI(M) while four belonged to other Left Front partners. Two of them were children from families of CPI(M) members.
The Central Committee salutes the memory of these comrades who have become victims of the depredations of extremist Maoist gangs and the Trinamul Congress party combine. These brave martyrs laid down their lives holding high the red banner of the Party and its cause.
The Central Committee is confident that the ultimate sacrifice of these comrades will not go in vain.
The Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) dips its red banner in salute to these martyrs.
