Release All Political Prisoners on Bail: CPI
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India has issued the following statement today (on July 13, 2020):
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India expresses serious concern over the deteriorating health conditions of several jailed political and human rights activists including Varavara Rao and Dr Saibaba. The unhealthy conditions in the jails and the reluctance of the authorities to provide highly needed medi-care facilities especially under the Covid-19 contagious conditions have worsened the situation. Many of those jailed are facing threat to their lives.
The Party therefore demands that all political prisoners be released on bail immediately and provided adequate medical care.
