The Communist Party of India (CPI) has severly criticised US Speaker Nancy Pelosi's meeting with the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala and termed the Tibet issue an "internal affair" of China.
CPI General Secretary A B Bardhan said
"The Government should see that their meeting does not turn into an anti-China meeting," .
Perhaps he had Kashmir in Mind when he gave a indirect warning
"All countries have internal areas where the situation is sometimes disturbed. There should be no interference from anyone,"
However, it was earlier in the year CPI was going all out (CPI) supporting the decision of the Seven Party Alliance (SPA), which was spearheading the pro-democracy campaign in Nepal, to spurn the proposal of the monarchy to hand over power to the Alliance.
In fact, the same Mr. A.B. Bardhan took exception to India welcoming King Gyanendra's readiness to hand over power to the SPA.
CPI general secretary A.B. Bardhan said the Centre had reacted in a hasty manner.
