Friends,

Lalgarh_630_4The `left’-front government of West Bengal, under the direct supervision of the central government has launched a war against the exploited and oppressed people of Lalgarh. This war on the people has been named as `Operation Lalgarh’. Thousands of Jawans of the police and paramilitary, such as CRPF, Eastern Frontier Rifles, Rapid Action Force, Border Security Force, CoBRA and others, have been deployed in the intensive military campaign in Lalgarh and nearby areas.

It is known that the Santhali tribals and local people of Lalgarh-Jangalmahal have been fighting for their freedom, self-respect and dignity since the days of British colonialism. Their thirst for dignity and freedom have further motivated them to stand up against the exploitative and pro-imperialist policies of the present governments in West Bengal and the Centre, against the SEZ policy of the state, forceful land acquisition, displacement and police repression. The Santhal tribals of about 1100 villages have been organising protests and their resistance movement among several other democratic demands raised the important question of brutal police oppression which the people of the region have been subjected to continuously for the last 8-9 months. But, the state government, instead of finding out a just political solution, has started military campaign, in with the active support of the central government throwing to winds all norms of a democratic polity.

137 policemen killed by Naxals in Bihar since 2003 Jan

Posted by Admin on July 30, 2009


MaoistPatna , July 30 A total of 137 policemen have been killed and 197 rifles, besides 6,342 rounds of ammunition looted by Naxalites at different places in Bihar since January 1, 2003, state Energy Minister Vijendra Yadav said today.

Replying on behalf of the state government to a question of Ramdeo Verma (CPI-M) in the assembly, Yadav said according to the figures compiled by the state police headquarters here, altogether 137 policemen lost their lives in violence perpetrated by Maoists between January 1, 2003 and May 31, this year.

Asserting that the state government was firm in its resolve to contain the activities of the Naxalites, he said the vacancies in 210 posts for sub-inspectors, inspectors and deputy superintendents to be deployed in the Naxalite-hit areas would be filled soon.

Besides, the Special Auxilliary Police (SAP) personnel were also engaged in tackling the Naxals. Steps have also been taken for recruitment of over 6,500 SAP men on contract to engage them in the police operations against the ultras, he added.

The Wound from Within

RED SIGNAL: A woman naxalite waits before her performance at a protest rally in Kolkata

A top economist with a global investment firm asked me recently: “Why would anyone want to follow a mass murderer? Even China has let the chap go.”
He meant Mao Zedong, whose callousness and paranoia cost China several million lives and decades of opportunity. The “anyone” referred to India’s Maoist rebels in 14 states, numbering tens of thousands, from indoctrinated propagandists to armed cadres. When I suggested that it was easy to be blind-sided by India’s economic growth and astounding progress in some areas, he switched off.

Denial is a religion. It is why Left-wing extremism has resurfaced with greater ferocity — thrice since the 1960s — even as India has grown more prosperous. But it continues to be misunderstood. Lalgarh was ‘hot’ in June not because of underlying issues, but because it was only 200 km west of Kolkata, within easy reach of live TV. Last November, in nearby Salboni, where Jindal Steel plans a plant, Maoists attempted to kill Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee. (A Marxist, or a Leftwing ‘liberal,’ Bhattacharjee is, ironically, a class enemy for the extreme Left, seen as keen to aggressively remove those reluctant to sell their productive farmlands for the “people’s car” project.)

Lalgarh: Villagers recount tale of police atrocities

Posted by Admin on July 30, 2009


LALGARH 630_34LALGARH/BELPAHARI: “Why have you come here? How will you help me by taking my photographs?” demanded Jharna Mal of Pathardanga village, her anger
welling up from the bottom of her heart. “Come and see how I am surviving, how I am feeding my four children. What was his fault?”

Jharna, who is referring to her husband, fails to understand why he should be arrested while sleeping in his own house. “Where should he have slept if not in his own house? If my husband is such a bad man, then I too should be arrested.”

Recalling the incident, People’s Committee against Police Atrocities spokesman Chhatradhar Mahato said when police raided Pathardanga soon after entering Lalgarh town during the joint operations, all the men of the village had fled, except for Manoranjan Mal, who was sleeping in his house. They promptly dragged him away and slapped a few cases on him. Manoranjan has not returned since. Pathardanga, too, wears a deserted look. Read the rest of this entry »
