A three-year-old girl was among a number of people injured in separate incidents of post-poll violence in various parts of West Bengal since Sunday afternoon, with the CPI-M blaming the ruling Trinamool Congress.
The Communist Party of India (CPI) is a national political party in India. In the Indian communist movement, there are different views on exactly when the Indian communist party was founded. The date maintained as the foundation day by CPI is 26 December 1925. But the Communist Party of India (Marxist), which split-off from the CPI, claims that the party was founded in 1920.
