Kolkata, (IBNS Sept 11) Trinamool Congress (TMC), the main opposition in the West Bengal Assembly, has a ‘rainbow alliance’ with Maoists since 2007, said Biman Basu, state secretary of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI-M).
“The TMC, since 2007 in particular, started a nefarious game plan forming a rainbow alliance combining right wing forces with the left sectarian so-called ‘Maoists’ to beat back CPI (M) and the Left as well as the Left Front government. These ugly forces concentrated their attacks in the democratic rights of the people and democracy to create anarchy, lawlessness, and terror-stricken situation,” Bose said here.
“TMC the main opposition in the Bengal Assembly have started a nefarious game plan attacking democratic initiatives of the CPI (M) and the Left front parties. Since the Lok Sabha elections, these anti-democratic forces killed 279 CPI (M) and Left leader and workers. These martyrs are mostly poor agricultural workers, daily wage earners, and many of them are from the tribal community,” he said.
Alleging that Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee’s TMC has the patronage of the corporate media barons, Bose said the party is continuing its ugly campaign based on ‘sheer lies’ and ‘slander’ in the state as well as in the rest of the country.
“Serious violent activities are perpetrated by the right reactionaries and ‘left’ sectarian so-called ‘Maoists,’ along with TMC in different parts of Bengal. In certain areas, these undemocratic activities are unleashed by the Indian national Congress (INC). Now it seems that the TMC and the INC want to move jointly together,” Bose said.
Saying the Left Front government of West Bengal stands for democracy & development, Bose stated ‘democratic’ people of Bengal, under the leadership of the CPI (M) and the Left Front, are continuing a serious campaign-movement against the anti-democratic violent activities of TMC and CPI (Maoist) joint forces, and Congress.
“With the assistance of UPA-2 government, TMC as a part of the central government, takes the advantage of all anti-democratic forces and continues their slanderous campaign against the achievements of the Bengal Left Front government.”
“Since the people of Bengal are fighting against the exploitative system, campaigning against the treaties with the US, which may jeopardise the sovereignty of India, and fighting for the workers’-peasants’ interests and for the interest of the democratic people, the reactionary forces of all hues are bent upon attacking the Communists and Left forces for their own class interests,” Bose added.
