Central team's Bengal visit politically motivated: CPM


Describing the visit as ‘politically motivated’, the ruling Left Front demanded that the delegation should either drop their plans or revise their visit schedule and include areas where the Left cadres are victims of an alleged nexus between the Trinamool Congress and Maoists.

“The Left Front protests against the visit of the Union home ministry team. Law and order is a state subject and the state government is doing more than its bit to maintain the situation. There is no need for the Central team to visit the districts. This is politically motivated,” LF chairman Biman Bose told newspersons here. The team members should have limited itself to collecting information from the state government officers.

“But if they insist on visiting the districts, then they have to tour all violence-hit districts of the state. They should go to violence-prone zones of East Midnapore, West Midnapore and Burdwan districts where the Maoists and the Trinamool Congress have an unholy nexus, killing innocent CPM supporters and workers,” he alleged.

The Front, Bose said, will organise a rally at the Brigade Parade ground in the heart of the city February next year to mobilise public opinion on price rise and ‘atrocities’ being committed by the opposition parties on Left workers.The Left leaders will also organise protest rallies in Delhi on the issue.
