Artist's book on TMC flip-flops

KOLKATA: Jadavpur University alumnus Debalina Chakraborty, who was arrested as a Maoist leader last year, was a regular to meetings at the Trinamool party office in Tiljala. The shocking fact has been revealed by theatre artist Manik Mondal in his recent book 'NijerDhak'.....

Interestingly, the author himself was arrested as a Maoist in 2010 from a Jangalmahal village and has spent more than 40 days in jail. On page 165 of his book, Mondal states that he used to assist present Trinamool leader Dola Sen during meetings to maintain a register of the participants. "I saw several Maoist leaders in the meetings," he writes, adding that some of the Maoist leaders also attended meetings where CM Mamata Banerjee used to be present.

"I know that Maoists had helped Trinamool a lot till the assembly election," writes Mondal, going on to talk about the Nandigram movement....
