Condemning the Maoist violence against the Left cadre, CPI(M) on Saturday said these attacks were part of a “wider gameplan by powerful vested interests” to destroy the party in its bastion of West Bengal.
“There is no doubt that this attack against the CPI(M) and its workers and sympathisers is part of the wider game gameplan by powerful vested interests to weaken and destroy the party in its main base of Bengal,” the party Central Committee said in a statement in New Delhi.
The party was of the view that these “fascistic type” of attacks on the CPI(M) were also an attack on the minimum norms of democracy and must be a matter of concern to all democratic minded citizens.
“In Lalgarh, the Maoist gang with direct and indirect backing of the Trinamool Congress has created a zone of terror against CPI(M) members and supporters.
“It is noted that the Maoist leaders in the area have openly spoken about their contacts and help to the Trinamool- led alliance in all the developments in Nandigram,” the party alleged.
The Central Committee said it supports the efforts made by West Bengal government to use both political and administrative measures to free the area from Maoist gangs while taking all steps to reestablish links with the poor tribals living in the area.
