Chhatradhar Mahato’s Arrest: Maoists call Nationwide bandh on Oct 3

Posted by Admin on September 26, 2009


Chhatradhar Mahato1Kolkata, Sep 26 (PTI) The CPI (Maoist) tonight gave a call for a 24-hour country-wide bandh on October three in protest against the arrest of tribal leader Chhatradhar Mahato, who was spearheading agitations in Lalgarh area.

Terming the manner of the arrest as “unethical”, top Maoist leader Kishenji told PTI over phone, “The police disguised as journalists have arrested Chhatradhar and that is not only unethical but it also puts a question mark on the intergrity and honesty of the mediaperson in general.”

Kishenji, speaking from an undisclosed location, said, “The incident happened as we have always maintained a very good relation with the media and the police have taken the advantage of our faith.”

Earlier Mahato, the leader of People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities (PCAPA), was arrested from Pirka near Lalgarh when he was preparing to give an interview to a journalist, who was trailed by the police.

Let Us Raise Our Voice for Unconditional Release of Chaatradhar Mahato

Posted by Admin on September 26, 2009


14laluToday police has arrested Chaatradhar Mahato, the popular leader of People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities (PCAPA) of Lalgarh. Police conducted an operation in disguise of journalists of Singapore TV. Shortly after engaging Mr. Mahato in a so called ‘phone in’ at Singapore TV, they arrested Mr. Mahato.

Chhatradhar Mahato has been leading the popular movement against state repression in Lalgarh since November last year. Their democratic demands attracted many people of different strata of the society and enjoyed mass-support. Actually it is the movement which has drawn in the mainstream media the issue of severe inhuman condition where people of Junglemahal including Lalgarh have to live. Condition of the people of Lalgarh after three decades of ‘leftist rule’ in West Bengal has opened the eye of the people. Arrest of Mr. Mahato can not make the end of the movement led by PCAPA.

Leading a democratic movement is not a crime in a civilized society. Rather ignoring the democratic and justified demands of the people of Lalgarh and PCAPA, the government has proved its anti-people and undemocratic character. Today, arresting Mr. Mahato, a leader of mass-movement it has once again showed its fascist face. His arrest shows that not a single progressive-democratic movement will be spared.

Let us raise our voice demanding unconditional release of Mr. Mahato.

Mahato, the leader of People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities (PCAPA), was arrested from Pirka near Lalgarh when he was preparing to give an interview to a journalist, who was trailed by the police, a top police official said.

The tribal leader, who had been giving regular interviews to local television news channels when the anti-Maoist operations by central para-military forces and the state police at Lalgarh began on June 19, had gone underground shortly afterwards.

The tribals under him had “liberated” Lalgarh and had free run for nine months with the police withdrawing from camps before the central forces and the local police recaptured the areas from the grip of Maoists, who were assisting the tribal agitation. Read the rest of this entry »

West Bengal: Allies warn CPM on ‘Salwa Judum’ plans

Posted by Admin on September 26, 2009


Salwa Judum With the CPM reportedly planning to pit volunteers against the Maoists in their bastion of West Midnapore district, the constituents of Left Front today voiced their fears saying an armed resistance would lead to “anarchy” and that the CPM should desist from any such move.

LF allies like the Forward Bloc and the CPI said these volunteer groups would create additional problems in West Midnapore, especially Lalgarh and the surrounding areas. “It is a fact that CPM supporters are being killed by the Maoists every day, but armed revenge cannot be an option for a political party or a front,” state’s Minor Irrigation Minister and CPI leader Nandagopal Bhattacharya said.

CPI sources said the state secretariat of the party has already decided to take up the issue with the CPM and would demand a discussion at the next Left Front meeting.

“I do not know whether the issue will figure at LF meet, but officially we will ask CPM to discuss… a bi-lateral meeting can also be held to discuss the issue,” said Bhattacharya. Read the rest of this entry »

Maoists: We control 5,000 villages in West Bengal

Posted by Admin on September 26, 2009

Sept. 25: The Maoists on Friday claimed they have been able to establish control in nearly 5,000 villages in and around West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia in the ongoing battle with the security forces in West Bengal.

Speaking exclusively to this newspaper, one of the Maoist leaders wanted most by the security forces, CPI (Maoist) politburo member Kishenji, claimed that the “Maoists have established people control in areas like Lalgarh, Goaltor, Shalboni, Belpahari, Balrampore, Sorega among others”.

He said they now plan to “levy taxes” on any big companies operating or coming up in these areas. “Generally we levy between eight to 10 per cent taxes on the big companies operating in areas controlled by the Maoist government,” Kishenji revealed on the phone. While rejecting the state government’s terms to come to the negotiating table and giving up their arms, Kishenji said, “Before any talks we also want the release of all Maoist prisoners from jail.” The Maoists also want those arrested in the Lalgarh operation freed without delay.

Kishenji claimed that in its protracted war against the state, the Maoists have established themselves strongly in at least 50 per cent of the districts in Orissa, 60 per cent of the districts in Chhattisgarh, 25 per cent in Bihar, 10 per cent in Maharashtra and 25 per cent in Andhra Pradesh. He claimed the Maoists still have a considerable presence in north Andhra. Read the rest of this entry »

“The Centre and the West Bengal government willing, our movement in Lalgarh on people’s behalf will continue for another three years or maybe even 30 years. The onus is on the government to choose what it wants,” said the top Maoist leader Koteswar Molajella Rao, alias Kishanji.

He was responding to the State government’s decision to seek additional Central forces to flush out Maoists from the Lalgarh region.

Speaking to The Hindu over telephone from an undisclosed spot in the Lalgarh area on Friday, Kishanji, who is a member of the Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Maoist), said: “Let the State government send as many contingents of Central forces as they want to to Lalgarh, I can assure them that none in the force will go back home.” Read the rest of this entry »

Bengal CPM welcome army deployment in Maoist zone

CPMBengal CPM for army role in Maoist zone OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT

Calcutta, Sept. 25: The CPM finds “little scope for debate” on the Centre’s plan to deploy the army to tackle Maoists, but the party is not sure if the Left Front partners would be as welcoming.

“Let the Centre decide and put the proposal before the state. But there is little scope for debate on this issue among us. The Maoists are operating as a regular army and they can be dealt with effectively by an army response,” said CPM state secretariat member Benoy Konar.

Party sources said Bengal chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee today told his comrades at the weekly party state secretariat meeting that the matter of army deployment in Maoist areas was likely to come up in his meeting with Union home minister P. Chidambaram next month. Bhattacharjee is scheduled to visit Delhi on October 10 to attend a CPM politburo meeting the next day. Read the rest of this entry »
