Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation salutes the delegates to the 22nd Congress of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), its members, allies and all those who support its struggle for interests of common people and their right to live in dignity.
The Party Congress will have to evaluate party’s activity in all areas as well as to assess its leadership, strategy and tactics. The correctness of such an assessment is really vital as your Party Congress takes place in uneasy atmosphere of the hardest international economic and political crisis which inevitably provokes bourgeois assault on common people, their rights and freedoms. But despite of such a complicated situation, the CPI(M) keeps on fighting for our common ideals, for socialism.
The Communist Party of India (Marxist), being an important national political power actively opposes right-wing religious reactionary parties protecting the interests of the working class as well as long lasting friendship between Russians and Indians.
At the same time your Party undertakes all kinds of collaboration with national and international left forces to make positive contribution to the development of the country and international communist movement as well.
The CPI(M) actively and consistently stands for the true democracy in India, for the rights of common people despite of growing pressure from reactionary forces.
The CPRF expresses its solidarity with your struggle for our common goal.
We wish the 22nd Congress successful work. We are confident that Congress decisions will further strengthen the Party ranks and improve the Party’s prestige in the society.
With fraternal greetings,
Central Committee of the Communist Party
of the Russian Federation
