Even as the standoff with China continues along the Line of Actual Control, the CPM has shockingly advocated that India' interest lies in directly negotiating with China rather than teaming up with the United States and its allies in any anti-China grouping.
The CPM has once again been vocal in resolving the ongoing dispute with China over the Ladakh issue. The West Bengal CPM said in a message on social media that the issue with China should be resolved through direct conversation. The current disputes on the border should be settled without ganging up with opponent countries
The social media message said, “The national interest of India lies in directly negotiating with China to settle its current disputes on the border without ganging up with the United States and its allies in any anti-China grouping.”

After the Sino-Indian war in 1962, the CPM in the country split into two. But the fact that the party is still leaning towards China is evident in the CPM’s social media post. The central government has been advised to be in a direct conversation with China.
In the Ladakh issue, India teamed up with the United States from the very beginning. Indian forces have also been seen beside the US Navy in exercises in the South China Sea. But if the situation in Ladakh worsens, the question remains as to how much support India will get from the United States.
After the COVID-19 pandemic, the plan of an alliance with the anti-China countries has started all over the world. India is playing an important role under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. India has already started opening its doors to investors who are losing interest in investing in China. In this situation, the CPM has once again requested the government to break free from the alliance and hold direct talks with China.
Recently, Madhav Kumar, the head of the Communist Party of Nepal, arranged a meeting with the communist parties of Nepal and South Asia through video conferencing. The top leadership of the CPR Forward Bloc, was invited to attend the meeting. But the Left-wing party did not agree to participate in that discussion.
According to sources, the decision to avoid the Chinese Communist Party was due to the Chinese aggression in Ladakh. The conference was avoided on the grounds that China was influencing the Communist Party of Nepal. Even after the Galwan conflict, the Left-wing party of the country turned down the offer of discussion offered by the Chinese Communist Party.
