Lalgarh: We’ll continue to fight for justice: Maoists

Maoist Kishan reacting on the crackdown of the police on the armed tribals said that thousands of villagers are with them in their fight agianst injustice and that at least 2000 villages are involved in the movement. He also said that it was unlike anyother gathering and that they were fighting against the atrocities of the government and the police.

The maoist also said that they were firmly entrenched in Nadigram and would continue to be so. He said police have committed unimaginable atrocities on the tribals there. The maoist further said that since Independence, the nation has not witnessed such a movement.

The central forces have begun their operations to flush out the Maoists from the villages in Lalgarh. Paramilitary forces whose advances were blocked by naxals by installing various roadblocks have now started engaging the naxals in a gunbattle.

Security forces were able to negotiate varius roadblocks like felled trees and dug up roads to enter Lalgarh. The West Bengal government which was under pressure has asked the state police forces to lead the operations against the naxalites. The government fearing an indiscriminate use of force by the paramilitaries has asked the police to play a more pro-active role.

Fresh violence rocks Lalgarh

DEMOLITION MEN: Activists of the People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities destroy the house of Chani Karan, a CPI(M) zonal committee member, at Lalgarh in West Medinipur district on Wednesday.

LALGARH/KOLKATA: A local leader and two activists of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) were gunned down by suspected Maoists in the Jhargram area of West Bengal’s Paschim Medinipur district, about 20 km from the strife-torn Lalgarh area that was rocked by a fresh wave of violence on Wednesday.

The State government said it was “ready” for operations against the trouble-makers following support from the ruling Left Front constituents for tough measures.

Three houses belonging to CPI(M) leaders were ransacked and set ablaze in areas adjoining Lalgarh, parts of which have been rendered inaccessible with roads dug up by activists of the Maoist-backed Police Santrosh Birodhi Janashadharaner Committee (People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities) to prevent the entry of Central paramilitary forces being deployed in the region.

“The ground situation at Lalgarh was reviewed and we are ready to put an end to the violence there,” Home Secretary Ardhendu Sen said here on his return from Lalgarh. “An operation will be launched. It will be led by the State police and with the Central forces as a back-up,” he added without going into details.

Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram had said in New Delhi that his impression was that while one section of the State government “was willing to take action” in Lalgarh, the other was “worried about the consequences.” This is a “judgment” that the Chief Minister must make, he had added.

However, Chief Secretary Ashok Mohan Chakraborty, said: “There is no question of any division in the State government; all are agreed on the matter.”

Cautioning the Maoists against “using innocent women and children as human shields” Mr. Chakraborty urged them “to put an immediate end to such inhuman tactics.”

Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee informed a meeting of Left leaders of the initiatives being taken to tackle the situation in Lalgarh. Mr. Bhattacharjee reportedly spoke of armed gangs of Maoist activists, trained in Jharkhand, being active in the Lalgarh area.

    Our aim is to break CPM shackles: Maoist leader

    He is leading the Lalgarh offensive in West Midnapore district of West Bengal. Around 24 years old, he is a veteran in Maoist ranks, serving as

    zonal committee secretary of Communist Party of India (Maoist) for West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia districts. Sukumar Mahato speaks to firebrand Maoist Bikash about his party’s plans:

    What are your immediate plans?

    Our aim is to break the shackles that the ruling CPM has put on the people of this area. For nearly two decades, the people have not reaped the so-called benefits of parliamentary democracy. Gradually, everything began to be controlled by CPM. Its leaders even had a say in marriages and other social and personal matters.

    There are many leaders against whom FIRs are pending. The police have taken no action against them. We will punish them. Those who have spent money or used political connections to avoid justice will be tried by people’s courts.

    The government is preparing to strike in a major way. How will you counter this?

    We have seen media reports in which government officials have spoken about bringing in Central forces, COBRA or Greyhound personnel. We are prepared for any strike. PCPA is with us. In Purulia, Bankura and West Midnapore districts, we have set up gram committees in over 250 villages. We shall ultimately liberate Keshpur and Garbeta. The state cannot stop us by using force.

    Why have you resorted to violence?

    We were forced into taking up arms by the administration. When we had guns pointing at us, one can’t expect us to respond with flower petals. Violence was started by CPM. We took up arms to counter this. Many of them are educated unemployed youths. Family members of CPM leaders have got jobs that were meant for them.

    Why do you target the police? Many of the constables belong to poor families.

    We have appealed to the police a number of times, not to blindly follow the diktats of CPM. We have asked the police not to torture poor villagers. There are some who heeded our appeal. Those who we targeted worked at the behest of CPM and paid a price.

    What is your ultimate goal?

    We want public funds to be used by the people’s committee. They will be accountable for all development work done. We have already done a lot of development work in the villages. CPM talks a lot about land reforms. Anuj Pandey and his two brothers owned 40 bighas of land. We shall distribute such land among the poor.
