At a time when the world is facing a deadly global pandemic, thanks to the Chinese Communist Party, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury penned a flowery tribute to the Chinese Communist Party on June 29.
The CCP celebrated its centenary on July 1.
Yechury wrote “The exemplary manner in which the PRC tackled and contained the Covid pandemic reopened its society and economy with the requisite precautions and put back the economy on a growth trajectory is a lesson for the world establishing the superiority of socialism as a system over capitalism.”
Now, it has been established that Chinese authorities lied about the origin and spread of the Covid-19. Only in December 2019, they accepted the existence of the Covid-19 virus but investigation revealed that they were aware of Covid at least six-eight weeks before.
Still, CCP is opposing any WHO-led investigation into the origin of the virus.
Many scientists and intelligence agencies believe the virus originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.
Yechury praises Chinese foregign policy writing “Progressive people look forward to the PRC under CPC’s leadership pursuing a peaceful foreign policy, consolidating good neighbourly relations, contributing to peace and stability in South Asia and in the world.”
All the neighbouring countries of China have complained about its dogmatic and imperialist position on boundary disputes.
Twenty Indian soldiers were martyred in June last year in a confrontation with the Chinese army in Ladakh when the Chinese troops showed aggression without any provocation.
Many African countries have complained how the CCP has caught them in a massive debt trap.
Through its state sponsored espionage, CCP is posing a threat to countries across the globe. The result: countries fear the Chinese tech companies. As a result, many countries, including India, have banned Chinese tech giants.
Recently, China forcefully closed the Hong Kong based pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily. All its top leadership was arrested and put behind the bars.
In the 1962 Indo-China war, communists had supported China and refused to stand with India in a time of crisis.
Even in the recent Galwan clashes last year, the communists did not condemn the Chinese aggression at the border.
