New Delhi: The CPI on Thursday called on the country's "progressive forces" to protest against US President Donald Trump's visit to India on February 24 and 25.

In a statement, party general secretary D Raja called on all party units, civil society groups and other political parties to "vehemently" unite and protest against Trump's two-day visit to India on February 24.

The US President will arrive in Ahmedabad, Gujarat on February 24 and be in Delhi the next day.

"It is a serious problem that, instead of pursuing an independent foreign policy, the Indian government is under pressure from the imperialist powers of the United States, while the United States continues to impose its hegemonic policies and brazen hostilities against Cuba on the world: Palestine, Iran and others ,

"In this context, we called for a protest in Delhi on the same day and asked all left and secular parties to join the protest and to give an appropriate rejection. The national secretariat of the CPI also asked all party units to organize protests across the country." said Raja.
