CPI had to face an embarassing question after 1962 Chinese aggression. The Indian Communist Party split partly under Nehru's pressure. The CPI denounced the war. The CPI made qualified submissions, which placed more blame on Nehru's "forward policy" than on China. The CPI escaped from more wrath. By a quirk of fate, the CPI allied to the Congress and the Soviet Union steadily lost its base. Its separation from the ruling party did not return its magic. On the other hand, the CPI which scorned the Congress kept its Marxist-Stalinist identity intact, and through fortuitous land reforms in West Bengal retained power there for decades. Three decades, and still going strong. Off and on, they have vied with the Congress to make governments in Kerala and Tripura. In the recent Kerala elections, they trounced the Congress, but it was courtesy a party leader unacceptable to the CPI general secretary, Prakash Karat.

The Chinese attack was over the McMahon line. The line was formed and the "Indo-China" border was drawn up between the British Raj in India and by the Imperial Chinese.

Shortly after WWII, the imperial Chinese fled to Taiwan and the British Raj left India, leaving the McMahon line as ??? territory. After that, it was just a battle of wills to see who was determined to hold the territory more.

No, they didnt. Haven't you heard about the famous sentence of EMS Namboodiripad,the thinktank of CPI{M} while referring to the chinese aggression? It ran thus..."The place which China claims to be theirs and we Indians claim to be ours..."

No they wanted India to be captured by Chinese so that they could've been nominated as Local Indian Rep of the Chinese after the aggression. HKL Surjit Jyoti Basu etc. were to be the chief.
