Start high-level talks with China: Left parties to GoI

New Delhi, Jun 19: Left leaders Sitaram Yechury and D Raja on Friday struck a different note among the Opposition parties at the all-party meet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, here on Friday evening.

Speaking at the meet, held through video-conferencing, Communist Party of India (Marxist)’s Yechury reiterated that the Government of India should initiate high-level talks with China, so that steps were taken, including clear demarcation of the Line of Actual Control (LAC), to maintain peace and tranquility on the border.

”As the Government of India has adopted this stand, the CPI(M) extends its support to this approach,” he said.

The CPI(M) leader also expressed its deep condolences at the death of Indian Army soldiers in the recent clash that took place along the Line of Actual Control at the Galwan Valley in Ladakh.

D Raja of CPI, who was among the leaders of 20 political parties who took part in the meeting, asked India ”to resist the US efforts to drag us into their alliance”.
