Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Bengal CPI(M) secretary Surya Kanta Mishra today accused the of "warmongering" in order to "cover up the failures" of the Modi government at the Centre over the last two years.

He said the Modi government, in order to cover up its failures in the last two years, chose to indulge in "war cries" against and "inciting communal passion".

"Once you manage to start a war, you manage to silence all the voices of dissent. The Modi government is trying to do so. He (Modi) had promised to give employment to two crore youths every year, but nothing of the sort has happened," Mishra said addressing a party programme here.

The CPI(M) had urged the Centre to continue with the "diplomatic and political" moves with to defuse tension and eliminate cross-border emanating from that country and hoped that there would be no further escalation of conflict between the two countries in the near future, he said.
