Trinamool won't hesitate to take Maoist support: Buddhadeb

KOLKATA, 5th August, 2010: The Trinamool Congress will go to any lengths and even enlist the support of Maoists to further its ends, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee said on Thursday.

“They will take the help of Maoists; will seek the help of anyone to unleash violence and lawlessness in the State,” he told a meeting here to commemorate the 122nd birth anniversary of Muzzafar Ahmed, one of the pioneers of the Communist movement in India.

“Now they [Trinamool and Maoists] will come together and hold a rally.” Mr. Bhattacharjee was referring to the August 9 rally in Lalgarh for which the Maoist-backed Police Santrash Birodhi Janasadharaner Committee has extended its support.

As of now Bankura, Purulia and Paschim Medinipur districts were under Maoist attack; between 150 and 200 people had been killed there so far. The influence of the extremists would be allowed to spread across West Bengal and there would be bloodshed through the State, the Chief Minister said. Listing the achievements of the Left Front Government, he asked: “Can the forces of lawlessness be an alternative to us?”

“The Trinamool and the Maoists have set up a joint army to counter the joint operations conducted by Central and State security forces,” said Biman Basu, State Secretary, CPI(M).
The Muzzafar Ahmed Memorial Prize for progressive and creative literary works was awarded to Dikshit Singha for his book, ‘Rabindranather Polli Punnargathan Prayas’.
