The Communist Party of India (CPI) on Monday urged the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government to open a dialogue with the Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) as also secessionist groups like the United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA).
CPI general secretary AB Bardhan told media persons here that the Maoists have been pushed into a corner in areas like West Bengal’s West Midnapore district. “I agree with this,” he replied when asked whether there was need for initiating a dialogue process with the Left wing extremists.
“Let there be a dialogue with the ULFA also. Else how can you end insurgency?” he asked.
