Resume Talks, Demands:CPI
Ludhiana: 13 October 2014: (Punjab Screen Bureau):
Nobel peace prize to Kailash Satyarthi and Malala, the citizens of India and Pakistan is an opportunity we should avail of and both the countries should move forward for a meaningful dialogue for lasting peace in the region.  This was the crux of rally and march taken out by the Communist Party of India today from Railway station to clock tower Ludhiana to congratulate the Nobel laureates and to appeal the government of India and Pakistan to shun war rhetoric against each other. 

Speaking on the occasion Com Amarjeet Kaur- national secretary of the CPI said that it is unfortunate that the tension between the two countries is being used for petty electoral gains in both the countries.  We have nothing to gain by teaching a lesson to each other. She was critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s irresponsible statement that we have taught Pakistan a lesson and a similar statement by Pak PM Nawaz Sharif that India should not take Pakistan lightly. Such rhetoric has already caused damage to peace in the region. Only alternative for the two countries to develop is to live in peace she said.
Addressing the gathering district secretary of the Ludhiana unit of the CPI Com Kartar Singh Bowani said that both countries have a common history, culture and values. All issues between the two countries should be sorted out through peace initiatives and mutual dialogue.
Dr Arun Mitra – Asstt. Secretrary expressed serious concern at the ongoing firing on the Indo-Pak order by both sides leading to several casualties. There is a danger that this could escalate into a larger conflict and threaten peace and development in the region. It must be remembered that both the countries posses nuclear weapons.  We are poor nations and peace is the only alternative for both the countries for prosper. This is even more important particularly in the wake of flood on both sides in Jammu and Kashmir which have caused large scale devastation and requires lot of empathy and finances to meet with this loss.

Com D P Maur- Asstt . Secretary of the district unit of the CPI said that during peace times trade between the two countries has increased to the benefit of both. People in the countries want to live in peace. This has been proved from the experience of the people while visiting each other country.
