Clash between Trinamool, BUPC

Posted by Admin on July 5, 2009


NANDIGRAM: Trouble broke out at Nandigram’s Sonachura on Saturday when Trinamool Congress supporters allegedly damaged a vehicle belonging to the

member of a rebel faction of the Bhumi Uchchhed Protirodh Committee (BUPC).

The incident happened near a place where wives of two arrested BUPC supporters are on a hunger strike since Saturday morning to demand their husbands’ release.

The rebel faction, which allegedly has Maoist links, accused the BUPC leadership and the Trinamool Congress of failing to take legal steps to secure the release of Gourhari Mondal and Radheshyam Giri, the two BUPC men picked up from South 24-Parganas on November 12 last year.

Police claimed that both of them were Maoists as they had been spotted with CPI (Maoist) activist Prakash Muniyan who, too, was arrested. All three are in custody at Alipore Central Correctional Home.

Sabita Mondal and Shefali Giri, their wives, alleged that the BUPC had taken no legal steps to get their husbands released though it had helped 60 to 65 other supporters picked up during the Nandigram agitation to secure bail.

A rebel BUPC leader described Sabita and Shefali’s demand as “just”. “Gour and Radheshyam had participated in the Nandigram agitation which helped the Trinamool reap rich electoral dividend, not just in Nandigram but across the state. So, the BUPC should take immediate legal steps to secure their release,” he said.

Leaflets in BUPC’s name were distributed by villagers from the platform where the two women are on hunger strike. However, BUPC central committee leader Pijush Kanti Bhuniya asserted that the organisation was not involved in the agitation. “It is being organised by the two women and their neighbours. Though the BUPC, too, wants their release, we can’t do much as the matter is sub judice,” he said.

Local panchayat functionary and BUPC leader Abu Taher said they would be meeting the two agitating women on Sunday and decide on providing legal help to get their husbands released. Sabita and Shefali, however, said they would continue with their hunger strike till their husbands are released.

Forces could stay in Lalgarh till month end

Posted by Admin on July 5, 2009


Lalgarh (PTI): The central para-military forces, conducting operation to flush out Maoists from Lalgarh along with police, will stay till this month end if the Centre wants, West Bengal government said on Sunday.

“We want the central force to be here till July end. If the central government agrees to it, they will stay,” Home Secretary Ardhendu Sen told reporters during a visit here where the operation entered the 17th day on Sunday.

“The joint operations will continue till normalcy is restored,” he said.

On whether the state would be requiring more forces, he said, “We are not seeking more forces. This is sufficient.”

“No, no NSG (National Security Guard) help was sought,” Mr. Sen said to another query.

Altogether 16 companies of forces including BSF, CRPF, specialised anti-Maoist force COBRA, state armed police, IRB and EFR are engaged in the operation here.

Asked whether Maoists are still there in Lalgarh, he said, “They fired on our forces even yesterday.”

Mr. Sen said the People’s Committee against Police Atrocities (PCPA) chief Chhatradhar Mahto would be arrested whenever he would be sighted. “Mahto is very much here in Lalgarh but he could not be tracked down as yet.”

Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee had said last week that Mahto would be arrested for helping the Maoists in Lalgarh though he was not organisationally with them.

The chief secretary said various schemes were being taken for the tribal belt of Midnapore, Purulia and Bankura districts for their socio economic development.

“We have to identify the problems and deal with them on a priority basis,” he said, adding six senior officers would be coming to the area shortly to initiate the projects.

The State government has recently revived a task force for development of the western region with secretaries of various departments concerned as members. Officials of those departments have reached Lalgarh a few days ago.

The administration would also have to fill up vacancies of different departments unless it would be difficult to implement the schemes, Mr. Sen said.
