CPI(M) seeks Governor's intervention

KOLKATA: Claiming that there were nearly 1500 incidents of attack on Marxists following the heckling of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Delhi, the CPI(M) today sought the intervention of Governor M K Narayanan.

"We have written to the governor seeking his intervention into the incidents of armed attacks, arson, loot and implication of CPI(M) workers in false cases," CPI(M) politburo member Suryakanta Mishra said.

"A number of our party offices have been ransacked, burnt down and several of our workers injured," Mishra, the Leader of the Opposition, said.

Mishra said that the letter also drew attention to the 'undemocratic and inhuman face' of the state government explicit in the arrest of former ministers without reason and chaining of an arrested SFI member Santosh Sahani to his hospital bed in Siliguri.

To a question, the CPI(M) leader asked why the chief minister did not follow the Delhi police instructions while entering Yojna Bhavan on April nine.

"There are many questions about this. We are not going into this. But its true that we can't shirk our responsibility. We have already condemned the incident which was undesirable," he said.
