When he reached Kalimpong, Phüntso Wangye began to make contact with representatives of the Indian Communist Party. It was not easy. The Communist Party was illegal, so it did not have an office with a signboard. When he arrived in Calcutta, Phüntso found a strong Communist Party presence there. He got a message from the Central Committee requesting that he meet them immediately. The Communist Party of India was poor, but the members were generally optimistic and upbeat, and not all the memories were bad. Phüntso sent a letter to Yuthok telling him that he had tried every means but received no help from the Council of Ministers, and said he hoped Yuthok could help them. And so, determined that it was time for them to take matters into his own hands, he returned to Kham.
