Kishanji seeks apology from PM

Posted by Admin on November 9, 2009

LalgarhKOLKATA: In the middle of a killing spree, some advice’ on development.

Warning that Operation Greenhunt could spell trouble for the government, Maoist leader Kishanji has “advised” Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on tribal development in a statement. He has also demanded an apology from the PM for the alleged atrocities on tribals.

“The Prime Minister has accepted that there was no development in tribal areas. If that is so, why is no development work being carried out? Centre should withdraw forces immediately or be prepared for a people’s war,” Kishanji said in the statement.

Refuting charges that Maoists were indulging in killings, Kishanji said they have been working on development programmes for 30 years. “Despite our limited scope, we have put into action a development programme from Lalgarh to Dandakaranya. Irrigation, drinking water, healthcare centres and schools have been provided by Maoists. Whether we have a development programme or not, we can have a debate with the Prime Minister in front of civil society, human rights activists and media. We have an alternate model for development based on human resources,” Kishanji said.

Kishanji said that development of tribals was possible only by combining human and natural resources. “Only this model can improve the plight of tribals. They are hardworking, intelligent and creative. Educated, unemployed youths can be roped in to teach tribals. Only after these developments can modernization and industrialisation take place. But industry has to be people-oriented and eco-friendly,” he said.

Kishanji said that the pursuit of such policies had endeared Maoists to the masses. He also questioned the development course charted by the Centre. “Why are cotton farmers in Punjab committing suicide? Why are workers in Haryana on the warpath?” he asked. TOI
