US deploying forces in Indian Ocean to take on China: Yechury

Saturday September 01, 2012 08:11:35 PM, IANS

Agartala: The US government has decided to deploy over half of its naval fleet in the Indian Ocean and South China Sea to take on China, Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) politburo member Sitaram Yechury said here Saturday.

"The US became frightened following the growth and hence decided to deploy 60 percent of its naval fleet and additional strength in Indian Ocean and South China Sea to deal with China," Yechury told a gathering here.

"Realising its future economic fate, the US has also been trying to grab oil and natural gas resources of this region besides West Asia, Arab countries and others," he said, addressing a function to mark the birth centenary of Leftist leader and first CPI-M chief Putchalapalli Sundarayya.

On the coal block allocation issue, which had paralysed parliament for several days, Yechury alleged that both the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress have done "match-fixing" on the issue and thus both the parties does not want to discuss it in parliament.

He said that there are lots of irregularities have taken place in the coal block allocation.

"The UPA (United Progressive Alliance) and BJP led governments arbitrarily had allocated coal blocks without proper auctions."

Demanding cancellation of the licences and coal block allocation, the CPI-M leader asked the government to disclose every detail on the urgent national issue to the people of the country.

"Some people saying that Left parties have been removed from power in West Bengal and Kerala, how it would survive in Tripura. The Left parties would not only keep its government in the next year's assembly polls in Tripura, but would also come back power in the other two states too," the CPI-M politburo member said.

CPI-M leader Gautam Das also spoke in the gathering held at the Agartala town hall.

The 20th Congress of the CPI-M, held in Kozhikode in Kerala, had decided to hold a year-long observance of the birth centenary of Sundarayya from May 1.

Sundarayya was the general secretary of the CPI-M from its inception in 1964 and played a major role in establishing the party as a leading force in the Left movement in the country.
