The CPI-M today expressed shock at the death and destruction caused by the earthquake in Sikkim and other parts and asked the government to mount full-scale rescue and relief operations in the affected regions.

It also suggested that the government should extend assistance, if required, to Nepal which has also been hit by the massive quake.

In a statement, the party Politburo said while the maximum damage had been caused in Sikkim, there have been casualties in North Bengal and Bihar as well.

"All efforts should be made to mount rescue and relief operations and to restore communications in the affected areas. The disaster management teams and the army are being deployed for the rescue work," it noted and conveyed condolences to the families of all those killed in the calamity.
