The CPI(M) on Monday attacked the government for ''collaborating'' with Israel and accused it of aiding Tel Aviv's military efforts by launching its spy satellite.
Reacting to Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launching an Israeli spy satellite from Sriharikota on Sunday, the party said the government was maintaining a ''shameful silence on the criminal blockade'' by Israel of Gaza strip and said instead, it was ''collaborating with Israel to enhance its military capability.''
The launch of Israeli satellite TECSAR ''shows how India is aiding the military efforts of Israel. The satellite has a capability to track activities in Iran and the region.''
I wonder why is CPM not criticising their Mentor China for their Military support to Pakistan. A recent news:
Pak's new port has strategic implications for India: Naval Chief
The Gwadar port being built by Pakistan with Chinese assistance in its Baluchistan coast has serious strategic implications for India, according to Naval Chief Admiral Suresh Mehta.
"Being only 180 nautical miles from the exit of the Straits of Hormuz, Gwadar, being built in Baluchistan coast, would enable Pakistan to take control over the world energy jugular," he said while delivering the T S Narayanaswamy Memorial lecture in Chennai on Monday night.
