35-year-old, Ashish Yechury, died on Thursday morning at a hospital in Gurgaon after a two-week battle with coronavirus.
Sitaram Yechury, the General Secretary of CPI (M)'s 35-year-old son, Ashish, died on Thursday morning at a hospital in Gurgaon after a two-week battle with coronavirus.
Ashish, 35, was recovering well at Gurgaon’s Medanta Hospital, people close to the family added, describing his sudden death at 5.30 am after a two-week battle with the disease as a shock.
Yechury's remarks come in the backdrop of PM Modi's statement assuring farmers that the government is ready to hold talks with them

Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had accused the Opposition parties of having 'double standards' regarding the new agri laws

Raising doubts about the impartiality of the probe, the CPI said the investigation by the Delhi Police is a 'conspiracy' aimed at criminalising those who speak against human rights violations and injustice, rather than catching the real perpetrators of the violence.
In a recent supplementary chargesheet, the Delhi Police, citing statements of those arrested, had named CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury along with other activists in the case.
Yogendra Yadav also termed the reports 'factually incorrect', saying Delhi Police's supplementary chargesheet does not mention him as co-conspirator, or even as accused in Delhi Riots.
They have been accused of asking anti-CAA protesters to go to 'any extreme', spreading discontent in the community by calling CAA/NRC anti-Muslim, and organise demonstrations to 'malign the image of the Government of India'.
Though the CPI (M) General Secretary did not name the 'private trust fund' he was referring to, he has often attacked the government over PM-CARES Fund terming it a 'private trust'.
CPI-M leader Sitaram Yechury alleged that the Modi government has 'unilaterally' imposed a new education policy after 'bypassing' all the objections and opposition recorded by various State governments.
Sonia Gandhi, the Congress interim President, also managed a coup of sorts by ensuring not just the participation of the Trinamool Congress but also of Mamata Banerjee herself, despite the presence of Left leaders Sitaram Yechury and D. Raja in the discussion, writes Puneet Nicholas Yadav.
Opposition parties have strongly criticised the budget for not addressing unemployment issues and lacking a concrete roadmap to reverse the economic slowdown.
