Heinous Conspiracy in the
Name of Arms Seizures
is witness to the planned incident of
‘Reichstag’ in Nazi Germany to defame the Communists and carry out
attacks on them. Looking back to the history has become even more
the context of today’s
In many parts of the state, the TMC workers are celebrating their victory by attacking CPI(M) and Left Front workers. In the first ten days since the new regime took over, ten CPI(M) leaders and supporters have been brutally murdered, women have been raped and molested and hundreds have been forced to flee from their residences. Above all, the newly elected government is using the administration to conspire against CPI(M) in the name of ‘seizure of illegal arms’. This is being carried out to give legitimacy to the ongoing heinous attacks.
has taken recourse to a campaign of ‘arms
search’ in CPI(M) offices. A section of the media is also playing a
role in orchestrating this hate campaign. TMC gangs are attacking or
Party offices and houses of Party leaders by raising false allegations
‘storing of arms’. In most cases, they themselves are taking
such a ‘search’. In some cases, when the police reached the place,
had already been completed. In Haldia, IOC union office was attacked
same pretext. However, police reached there and nothing has been found.
interrogating, police confronted Sheikh Ali, a TMC activist of Haldia,
admitted that he tried to keep a pistol near the union office as
the TMC leaders. In Kotulpur, in Bankura district, villagers confronted
when TMC activists ‘found’ a firearm in a pond and kept it in CPI(M)
most cases, no arms were found in any such search. In
All this is a part of a nefarious game to malign the CPI(M).The weapons which were being ‘recovered’ allegedly from the houses of CPI(M) leaders and Party offices in rural Bengal, particularly in areas under jangal mahal of Midnapore and Bankura district and which were being publicized by a section of media houses actually belong to Trinamool activists. It was also evident that the same ‘cache of arms’ are being exhibited in many places. In many such instances, photographers of media were seen present sbefore such a ‘search’.
The nature of ‘recovery’ itself clearly indicates that the weapons are being dumped in ponds and paddy fields by TMC activists in the vicinity of houses of CPI(M) leaders and Party offices in the night and they themselves call the police and identify those spots. In Bankura, attacks on CPI(M) offices in the name of ‘search’ were led by hardened criminals, some of who are even accused of murders. They are moving with police who are reeling under tremendous political pressure. Asked about the allegation regarding recovery of arms from places close to Party leaders and Party offices, CPI(M) state secretary Biman Basu accused TMC activists of planting weapons near the Party offices and homes of local leaders of Left parties which is the reason for the haul of arms that have been recovered over the past few days.
climax of the lot is perhaps the recent
attempt to link up CPI(M) with the incident of Silda EFR camp attack.
incident occurred in February 2010 and 24 EFR jawans were killed in
attack. The top ‘Maoist’ leaders admitted that the action squad of
attacked the Silda EFR camp, killed 24 jawans and looted a large
arms and ammunition. The CID enquiry
clearly revealed the ‘Maoists’ involvement in the Silda incident and
were framed against ‘Maoist’ leaders Kishenji and Sasadhar Mahato. Many
‘Maoist’ leaders, including their state secretary Sudip Chongdar alias
, Telegu Deepak, have been arrested. Suddenly in recent ‘search’ led by
gang, some arms were recovered in Enayetpur in
Union home minister P Chidambaram , in his suo moto press briefing on the issue, tried the same trick to link CPI(M) with arms seizures. But, he did not have the courage to state that arms were recovered from CPI(M) offices. Instead, he said that most of the arms were recovered from ‘unclaimed’ places. In the case of Enayetpur, union home minister admitted that arms were seized from a place ‘not known as a CPI(M) area’.
concerted effort to bulldoze CPI(M), not
merely through an electoral defeat, has been unleashed in
