CPI-ML targets Buddha

CPI-ML targets Buddha

Statesman News Service
NEW DELHI, March 20: Under attack on Nandigram for almost a week, West Bengal's ruling CPI-M was today targeted by the CPI (Marxist-Leninist) Liberation for the 14 March killings. The CPI (ML) leader, Mr Dipankar Bhattacharya, told a Press conference that if the chief minister, Mr Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, accepted moral responsibility for the killings, he should resign and tender an apology.

He described the CPI (M) general secretary, Mr Prakash Karat's defence of the state government a blot on the party rule. Comparing Nandigram with Naxalbari, Mr Bhattacharjee told reporters that when Naxalbari took place, the CPI-M told the peasants to forget about revolution, and mind their farms. At Nandigram, the CPM was not allowing the peasants to keep their farms.

Bandh peaceful

A day-long bandh called by the Eastern Regional Bureau (ERB), an ancillary organ of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) across the five states of Bihar, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal and Orissa protesting against the killings in Nandigram, passed off peacefully in Jharkhand. Normal life was largely disrupted in the rural areas of the state. Eighteen out of twenty-two districts of Jharkhand were affected.

Areas considered to be Maoist strongholds saw a complete shutdown. However, the urban pockets of the state remained by and large normal adds SNS from Ranchi The Statesman
