MAOISTS AND THE INTELLECTUALS IN WEST BENGAL by Subhanil

More than 70 people, particularly belonging to the CPI(M), have been brutally murdered by the Maoists in West Bengal over the last few months. These murders have been the most inhuman and gruesome in the political history of West Bengal at least in the last three decades. Teachers have been killed in front of students, poor people have been shot dead following which even the cremation was not allowed, a young girl and her mother have been burnt alive, all because of a simple crime that these people were supporters and sympathisers of CPI(M). The criminal Maoist party has orchestrated this crime in the name of ‘revolution’ and the great Mao Tse Tung. Mao had said that ‘revolutionaries must move amongst people as fish swims in water’. The Maoists in our country on the other hand are guilty of being the hunter of the people. It is beyond one’s comprehension as to how killing poor people can bring any social transformation leave alone revolution in India. It is, however, not too difficult to grasp the real intention of the Maoists, which is to physically annihilate the CPI(M) in West Bengal. As always left wing adventurism has paved the way for complete degeneration into worst form of bourgeois ruling class politics. That is why the politburo member of the Maoist party has no qualms in openly declaring that Ms Mamata Banerjee should be the next Chief Minister of West Bengal. The Maoists today in West Bengal are nothing more than the mercenaries of the Trinamool Congress, whose only job is to terrorize people and kill CPI(M) supporters and activists.

A section of the intellectuals in West Bengal today have taken on the mantle of being the cheer leaders of the Trinamool-Maoists combine. In the name of ‘democracy’, ‘human rights’ and such noble concepts, these intellectuals have always been extraordinarily expedient in criticising or abusing the CPM and the Left Front in West Bengal. This poses no problem. Every individual has the right to criticise any party. But a modicum of consistency and honesty is expected from so called ‘neutral’ people, which they conspicuously lack. Till date, they have not even uttered a murmur of protest against the killing of more than 70 CPM cadres. There has not been even a symbolic protest against the gruesome killing of the election officials, doctors and nurses by the Maoists in the state. More recently, the sensitive intellectuals of Bengal have maintained criminal silence against beheading of the police inspector in Jharkhand. In other words, their protests are selective, inconsistent and politically motivated.

It can be argued that even this inconsistency or selectivity is politically justified. It must be acknowledged that the intellectuals have the right to support or oppose anyone that they want. Ultimately, that is the essence of politics. The problem arises when this politics is played under the veil of ‘neutrality’ and an implicit moral high ground on their part. If indeed you are supporting the Maoists, say that openly. Do not hide behind your self-created false image of being friends of all people, since ultimately your creative minds do not even have a drop of tear or grief for the activists of CPM, majority of whom are poor people. The real question is what explains this behaviour on the part of such ‘honourable’ people. According to me, the answer to this question is not only about the political choices that these people individually have made, aided by certain short comings of the CPM in West Bengal. I think that the deeper problem with these intellectuals is the fact that unlike intellectuals of yester-years, they are completely cut-off from the struggles of the people, at a broader level, both against the Indian establishment or imperialism. This wedge between the people’s struggle and the intellectuals on the other hand is a direct product of the policies of liberalization and upward mobility of the middle class and these very sections of the intelligentsia. It is therefore not surprising that these so called intellectuals never had anything to say on the Indo-US nuclear deal, farmers’ suicides in various parts of the country, sell out of public sector enterprises, attack on the working class etc. In all of these issues it was the Left and the CPM which were at the forefront of struggles to safeguard the interests of the people. In these struggles these intellectuals were never even fellow-travellers of the working class and toiling masses of the country. Hence, as a logical corollary, their political hyperactivity today is directed against the very forces who have posed the most serious challenge to imperialism and their cohorts in India. There was a time in West Bengal, when the finest literature and art was produced reflecting social issues and struggles of the people. Who can forget the haunting stories of Manik Bandyopadhyay on Bengal famine, the films of Satyajit Ray on urban unemployment, Mrinal Sen’s films on workers’ movements, Ghatak’s films on the refugee problem, poetry by Sukanto Bhattacharya, Subhas Mukherjee, plays of Utpal Dutta, songs of Salil Chowdhury etc etc. Each of these intellectuals through their works of art, not only reflected the lives and struggles of the people but inspired social movements and upheavals. This was because each one of them had a commitment to social cause and strived for changing the world for a better place, although their ideas on how to change or what will be the change were quite different. The current bunch of intellectuals (barring a few), are cut off from the day to day survivalstruggle of the masses. The post modern hegemonisation of the intelligentsia in Bengal has blinded them from imperialism and the need for organized left movement. However, the romanticism and petty-bourgeois radicalism are still in tact. Therefore it is fashionable to ‘protest’. Unable to intellectually comprehend the role that imperialism plays in our lives or the struggle of the Left against it, they have fallen back on blind opposition of left in West Bengal. This blindness and intellectual bankruptcy on their part have found them in the company of the Maoists, Mamata Banerjee et al.

From the point of view of the left however, such opposition on the part of intellectuals should notreally matter too much. What is important is to build up solid left resistance to imperialism and the neo-liberal anti-people policies in the country. Only by building up uncompromising struggles will the left emerge as the champion of the masses and will find support from sensible sections of the intelligentsia too. In other words, only through intensifying class struggle can the left emerge victorious isolating both the Trinamool-Maoists as well as their cheer leaders from the masses.

PERVERTED MAOIST INTELLECTUALS GANG UP WITH KILLER OF INNOCENT WOMEN AND CHILDREN OF NAXALBARI MOVEMENT

Maoist Mahasweta Devi, Medha Patkar and their team of mentally bankrupt ‘pseudo’ intellectuals in collusion with Mamata Banerjee, right reactionaries, imperialists and finance capital have been waging a total war against the Left Front Government led by the CPI (M) in West Bengal.

There is no denying the fact that Dipak Kumar Ghosh, former IAS Officer of West Bengal and now a TMC leader, is one of their most trusted and beloved lieutenants in this battle. The opportunistic gang up between Maoist Mahasweta Devi and Mamata Banerjee-Dipak Kumar Ghosh is not only an irony of fate but also a historical blunder as well as an utter ideological bankruptcy and lack of pragmatism on the part of Mahasweta Devi, Maoists and the perverted intellectuals.

This is the same Dipak Kumar Ghosh who was responsible for the butchery of 8-10 women and children on 25th May, 1967 at Prasadujote in Naxalbari, consequent upon which the present ongoing Naxalbari Movement started.

A letter of Shri Arun Kumar Mukherjee, former Director General of Police, West Bengal under the caption “Putting the record straight” has been published in the “Letters to the Editor” column of “The Statesman” of Kolkata edition on 19-09-2009 in response to an article written by Dipak Kumar Ghosh in the same daily on 27-08-2009.

If anyone goes through this letter, he will certainly come to know how the coward, impotent, sluggish and atrocious Dipak Kumar Ghosh had butchered innocent women and children in Naxalbari on that fateful day for no fault of theirs.

The full text of the letter is mentioned below.

Sir,

This is with reference to the article by Dipak Kumar Ghosh “A monster takes on its creator” (Perspective 27 August). I am writing this letter to correct some of his gross distortion of facts about the Naxalbari movement of 1967, in particular about the period during which I happened to be the Superintendent of Police of Darjeeling district of which the Naxalbari region is part.

Let me correct the first distortion of Mr. Ghosh’s article “…Police Inspector Sonam Wangdi (36) was killed by Naxalite arrows on 24 May 1967. The police operation started the very next day and within a few days, the movement was controlled….” No police operation started on 25 May nor the movement controlled within a few days. What really happened on that day (25 May, 1967) was the most distressing incident during the entire duration of the Naxalbari movement.

On coming across a crowd of agitated villagers consisting mostly of women, children and some men at Prasadujote, on the outskirts of Naxalbari, a panicky SDO (Mr. Ghosh, the writer of the article) ordered repeated police firings as the officer who was in charge of an armed police contingent ~ resulting in the totally avoidable death of nearly 8-10 persons mostly women and children.

On that morning, the divisional commissioner, (Ivan Surita) the deputy commissioner of Darjeeling district (Manamoy Bhattacharya) as also the additional deputy commissioner (land acquisition) and the SDO, Siliguri sub-division (Mr. Ghosh) accompanied me to Naxalbari police station to ease the tension among policemen as a result of the murder of Sonam Wangdi and serious injuries to the officer-in-charge of Naxalbari PS and several others the previous day.

When this party with the SDO returned to Naxalbari police station with details of the casualty, we were outraged and totally shattered because all our efforts during the previous months had been to avoid bloodshed.

On seeing the SDO, the divisional commissioner, Ivan Surita, was about to physically chastise him and so was the otherwise affable deputy commissioner Manamoy Bhattacharya; both of them had to be restrained by me, stating that it would serve no purpose except to add to the existing tension, and more so since we all were within the full view of our subordinate officers in and around the police station.

What followed thereafter has remained a matter of great mortification for me: as a consequence of repeated pleadings of Bhattacharya (DC, Darjeeling district) and Kalyan Biswas (additional DC, estate acquisition, Darjeeling district) I had to agree to send a wireless message to the IGP/DIG, Jalpaiguri Range, and others which deliberately conveyed less than the whole truth about the Prasadujote incident. And all this was done to save the SDO who was otherwise destined to be severely punished.

The second distortion is even more brazen. Mr. Ghosh writes: “At the early stage (of the Naxalbari movement?), the police operations at Naxalbari were directly planned in the control room in Siliguri by the deputy commissioner of Darjeeling and the divisional commissioner of Jalpaiguri in consultation with the SP, Darjeeling, and the DIG, Jalpaiguri Range”.

This is clearly a flight of fancy on the part of Mr. Ghosh because hardly did I see any of them (including the Siliguri SDO) in the control room, not to speak of planning the police operations there.

The third distortion is perhaps a great joke for all those who even had a cursory acquaintance with the unfolding events of May to August, 1967 when the movement was t its peak. Mr. Ghosh claims that after the planning part, the operations “were carried out in the hot and humid field by the SDO and the additional DC…”.

More than me, my esteemed and late friends Manamoy Bhattacharya and Kalyan Biswas would have been both amused and outraged at such bizarre claims of the SDO who was never seen by anybody top set foot outside the precincts of Siliguri town during those troubled days and nights.
Yours, etc.

MAMATA BANERJEE HIJACKS RAJDHANI EXPRESS FOR THE RELEASE OF MAOIST LEADER CHATRADHAR MAHATO

MAMATA BANERJEE WITH MAOIST LEADER CHATRADHAR MAHATO

The well calculated pre-planned mysterious drama of hijacking New Delhi bound Bhubaneswar-Rajdhani Express on 27th October, 2009 by the Maoists in connivance with the Railway Minister endangering more than 200 passengers including women and children for the release of Maoist leader Chattradhar Mahato by way of black-mailing and its subsequent developments have raised many a questions in the minds of the people of the country.

· When the news about the detention of the Bhubaneswar-New Delhi Rajdhani Express by the Maoists reached Mamata Banerjee during her press briefing at the same time of happening, why was she hell bent on proving that it was not the handiwork of the terrorist outfit?

· Why till today she has not once condemned the Maoists by name for the ghastly incident of detention of Rajdhani Express?

· Why is she still bent upon shielding the Maoists?

· Why there was no Railway Protection Force in spite of knowing fully that the train was to pass through Maoist infested forest area of Jangalmahal? Why did the RPF get down at Kharagpur Railway Station allowing the train to proceed without any escort? How did this news of the train proceeding without escort reach the Maoists in advance who captured it so easily without any resistance?

· 2443-UP Bhubaneswar-Rajdhani Express usually leaves on Monday and Friday from Bhubaneswar. But this train left on Tuesday. So, it was a special train. Despite this fact, the train was running without any escort from Kharagpur.

· When the train neared the Banstala Railway Station, why was its speed slowed down?

· The Central Home Secretary Shri G.K.Pillai very categorically said that the incident was the handiwork of the Maoists in the garb of PCPA. Despite this admission, why the frontal organization of the Maoists working under the name and style PCPA (People’s Committee against Police Atrocities), which was responsible for the incident, was not named in the FIR lodged by the Railway Authorities with the concerned Police Station?

· Despite being the mob led by TMC leaders Santosh Mahato of Kantapahari, Man Singh Kisku of Tiyakathi, Dileswar Mahato of Nalbona, Paru Mahato of Baghghada, Madan Mahato and Fantus Murmu of Bhulabheda, Badal Mahato and Bidyut Singh of Dharampur and Maoists, why the Railway Authorities did not mention their name in the FIR?

In this connection it would not be out of place to mention that all these TMC leaders were also present beside top Maoist leader Kishanji during the release of the abducted police officer Atindranath Dutta on 22-10-2009 in front of Bhulageda Primary School in the presence of media. The whole country witnessed this drama in different TV Channels.

· When the train restarted its journey, why the graffiti asking for release of Maoist leader Chatradhar Mahato and other political slogans written on the train compartments by Ragesh Mahato, a TMC leader of Kharagpur No. 2 Block, were not erased? Was it a plan to reach the message to the entire nation?

· When the train reached New Delhi Station, why the passengers were not allowed to meet media persons?

· The Central Minister Sisir Adhikari has categorically informed the media that he had prior information about the attack on the train. Being in a responsible position, why did not he inform the Intelligence agencies of both the Central Government and the State Government as well as the Indian Railways in the larger interest of the safety and security of the train and its passengers.

· The Maoists have blown up railway station, railway tracks and other infrastructures of the Indian Railways in different parts of the country. They have openly taken responsibility for the same. But till today why Mamata Banerjee being the Railway Minister has not yet once condemned the Maoists by name for the same?

Does not it prove that the whole episode was a joint operation engineered and carried out planfully by Mamata Banerjee and the Maoists for the release of the Maoist TMC leader Chatradhar Mahato?

Being at the helm of the Home Ministry, P. Chidambram must have report about the unholy alliance between the Maoists and Mamata Banerjee. Despite all these serious questions, facts and circumstances, both the Prime Minister and the Home Minister have been playing duplicity with the nation by defending the Railway Minister for petty political gains which is not only unbecoming on their part but also poses a serious threat to the internal security and safety of the entire country.

It is proved beyond doubt that all their tall talk about the Maoist menace is nothing but an eyewash and hypocrisy.

LALGARH: FEAR, POWER AND OBEDIENCE by Parveen Swami (Published in ‘The Hindu’ dated July 3, 2009)

CAN DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTIONS RESIST A CULT OF DEATH?
Four years ago, in a newspaper interview that went unnoticed even in West Bengal, ‘Comrade Dhruba’ described plans for a guerrilla campaign that would stretch from Medinipur to Malda. But the Communist Party of India (Maoist) central committee member had words of reassurance for his impeccably bourgeois, English-speaking audience. “We do not plan violence in Kolkata,” he said, “because when we establish our bases there, the people will be forced to obey us.”

Marketed as an authentic adivasi rebellion against misrule, backwardness and human rights abuses, the still-unfolding violence in Lalgarh in fact provides graphic insights into exactly how India’s Maoists command obedience. Lalgarh’s key leaders — a caste-Hindu from Andhra Pradesh with a Kalashnikov in hand, and an affluent public-works contractor backed by the Trinamool Congress — have demonstrated that there is an intimate relationship between fear and power.

Fittingly, perhaps, the Lalgarh crisis began with a murderous act of violence — albeit an abortive one. Minutes after West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee left the site of a new steel plant on November 2, 2008, a massive improvised explosive device went off under the road he had just passed over. If rats in the fields around Salboni hadn’t chewed through the kilometre-long wire connecting the IED to the hands which controlled the explosion, Mr. Bhattacharjee would have died.

For months before the bombing, there had been localised protests against the construction of the Rs. 350 billion JSW-Bengal Steel plant at Salboni. No large-scale displacement of local residents was involved. Of the 5,000 acres needed to build the plant, 4,500 acres were owned by the State government, while the remaining 500 were purchased by the JSW-Bengal Steel at relatively high prices. But Maoist-affiliated groups argued that the State had no right to the forest land it was making over to the plant: it belonged, they insisted, to the region’s adivasis.

The police responded to the November 2 bombing by detaining over a dozen Lalgarh area residents for questioning — a far from unusual practice after a major terrorist attack. Many of those detained, predictably, had no connection with terrorists. On November 3, for example, the police held retired schoolteacher Kshmananda Mahato and three teenage school students, Eben Muru, Goutam Patra and Buddhadev Patra. Even though all four were let off the next day, some local residents were incensed.

CLASH BETWEEN POLICE AND LOCALS

Matters came to a head on November 5. Early that morning, the police raided the village of Chhoto Pelia in search of Sasadhar Mahato — the fugitive CPI (Maoist) operative alleged to have commanded the attempted assassination of the Chief Minister. Fighting broke out between them and the local residents who the police claim were compelled by the Maoists present in the village to obstruct their way. Fourteen women were injured; one woman, Chhitmani Murmu, lost an eye.

From November 7, the anger transformed into street protests. Led by the Bharat Jakat Majhi Marwa (BJMM), a body of traditional adivasi community leaders, Salboni residents closed roads and blockaded the Lalgarh police station. On November 14, though, the BJMM leadership reached an agreement with the local authorities. But its workers were now attacked by members of the newly-formed Police Santrosh Birodhi Janasadharaner Committee (People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities: PSBJC), which accused the traditional adivasi leadership of selling out the people it represented.

Who constituted the PSBJC? Its principal leader, Chattradhar Mahato, was a long-standing Trinamool Congress supporter who had made a small fortune from public-works contracts — and fugitive Maoist Sasadhar Mahato’s brother. Trinamool leaders claim he was expelled two years ago, but have produced no evidence to back this claim. Notably, Trinamool Congress flags were regularly flown by the PSBJC cadre at their protests; at many places in Lalgarh, the party’s banners still share space with those of the CPI (Maoist).

From the outset, it was clear that the PSBJC had no intention of making peace. Its demands were designed to invite rejection: that West Medinipur’s Superintendent of Police do penance by performing “sit-ups holding his ears;” that all policemen in Lalgarh crawl on all fours from Dalilpur to Chhoto Pelia, rubbing their noses in the dirt; that all those arrested on terrorism-related charges since 1998 be released.

Even then, the State government attempted to stave off a confrontation. On November 27, the day of the deadline set by the PSBJC, the West Bengal police shut down 13 posts and camps in the Lalgarh area. Later, on December 1, two more police posts were abandoned. But West Bengal’s increasingly desperate efforts to make peace failed — and a murderous meltdown followed.

The PSBJC announced the suspension of its struggle — but on ground, formed a parallel administration. Its Maoist allies prevented the entry of the police and administration in the villages of Belpahari, Binpur, Lalgarh, Jamboni, Salboni and Goaltore. From here, the Maoist death squads launched a series of increasingly brutal attacks. BJMM’s Sudhir Mandal, who organised a massive anti-Maoist rally in December, was shot dead. In February 2009, Maoists fired on the funeral procession of the assassinated Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader, Nandalal Pal, killing three. Five more CPI(M) supporters were killed in April, as were four poll staff and police personnel. June brought a fresh wave of attacks.
“The Maoists did not capture Lalgarh,” counter-terrorism analyst Ajai Sahni observes, “the State deserted the people.”

Maoist groups had long been preparing the ground for just such a situation. In 2005, following the assassination of CPI(M) leaders Raghunath Murmu, Bablu Mudi and Mahendra Mahato, the prestigious South Asia Intelligence Review warned of the possibility of a “Naxalbari Redux” — a reference to the Darjeeling district hamlet from where, in March 1967, began a six-year Maoist insurgency that claimed hundreds of lives.

Documents seized from three CPI (Maoist) leaders, researcher Saji Cherian noted in the article, showed plans to attack or blow up police stations. There were also notebooks with details of how adivasis in Bankura, Purulia and West Medinipur were to be educated about their exploitation — and how they could be “freed.”

Starting with an October 14, 2004, attack which claimed the lives of six Eastern Frontier Rifles personnel in West Medinipur district, the CPI (Maoist) launched increasingly ferocious attacks.

POLITICAL ALLIES

It also made political allies. In February last year, the West Bengal police arrested Himadri Sen-Roy, the Bengal state secretary of the CPI (Maoist). From Roy’s interrogation, the police acquired a mass of details on how the Maoists were developing a symbiotic relationship with the Trinamool Congress and the welter of so-called civil society movements that had sprung up to oppose West Bengal’s industrialisation drive.

Top Maoist leaders, Sen-Roy is said to have told the police, visited Nandigram in 2006, soon after the Trinamool Congress and Islamist groups initiated what would turn into a bloody confrontation. They sensed opportunity. Sen-Roy claims to have persuaded a range of political figures that their interests and those of the CPI (Maoist) were similar: among them, Trinamool leader Subendhu Adhikari and eminent writer and activist Mahashweta Devi.

Early in 2007, Sen-Roy is alleged to have said, Maoist military commanders purchased Rs. 8 lakh worth of weapons — six .315-bore rifles and ammunition — to set up an armed unit in Nandigram. Dozens of locally-made weapons were also purchased to arm new cadre. The weapons were stored at Sonachura in East Medinipur, an area which saw some of the worst violence during the Nandigram agitation.

Meanwhile, top CPI (Maoist) commander Molajella Koteswar Rao set about constructing military infrastructure in the Lalgarh area. According to Sen-Roy’s testimony to the police — which, under the law, is not admissible in a court — Rao extorted between Rs. 8 lakh every month from roads, construction and forest-produce contracts operating in the districts of Paschim Medinipur, Bankura and Purulia. In addition, CPI (Maoist) units outside West Bengal pumped in a further Rs. 1.5 lakh a month to train recruits in Jharkhand and Orissa’s Mayurbhanj forests.

By 2008, the Intelligence Bureau was reporting Maoist activity in all but one of West Bengal’s 18 districts. Three districts — Bankura, West Medinipur and Purulia —were graded among the most affected in the country. Between January and October 2008, 21 fatalities were reported from the districts in 34 Maoist attacks.

Like the Lalgarh violence, these killings did nothing for the poor adivasis in whose name they were executed: but the CPI (Maoist) doesn’t seem to care.

In one recent interview, Koteswar Rao candidly admitted that his party was willing to endorse almost any form of violence: “We do not support the way they attacked the Victoria station [sic.]”, he said of the Lashkar-e-Taiba jihadists who executed November’s carnage in Mumbai, “where most of the victims were Muslims. At the same time, we feel that the Islamic upsurge should not be opposed as it is basically anti-U.S. and anti-imperialist in nature. We, therefore, want it to grow.”
West Bengal will be a test of whether democratic institutions prove capable of resisting this cult of death.

4 TIER ORGANISATION OF CPI (MAOIST)

There is no denying the fact that the Maoist terrorist outfit is a perversion of Marxism-Leninism. In fact, it is an organization of assassins, hired killers, extortionists, blackmailers, abductors and mercenaries. It reportedly owns a fund amounting to more than 1,500 crores. The operation of the Maoists not only remain concentrated to kidnapping and looting of passengers traveling in trains and buses but also felling and selling of costly trees in collusion with wood smugglers in Jharkhand, Lalgarh, Jangalmahal and other areas. They also blow up bridges and other structures made of low quality materials to destroy proofs and evidences in order to help the contractors in exchange of money. In the name of fighting SEZ they are actually creating their own SEZ (Special Exploitation Zone) wherein these activities can be carried out easily and uninterruptedly in the name of ‘so-called’ revolution and ‘Maoism’.

It is in close contact with NSCN (IM) and ULFA, ex-LTTE cadres, National Socialist Council of Nagaland (I-M), Pakistan supported terrorist outfits and other separatist movements of North-East. They are in possession of at least 6,500 regular weapons including AK 47 rifles and SLRs

The CPI (Maoist) is a four-tier organization. The first tier consists of Maoist ideologues, the 2nd the ‘so-called’ intellectuals and human rights organization, the 3rd being its frontal organizations and the 4th the armed cadres operating in different states

1st TIER

Maoist ideologues such as Kobad Gandhi, Kondapalli Seetharamaiah, Muppala Lakshman Rao alias Ganapathi and others

2ND TIER

‘So-called’ intellectuals and human rights activists such as Medha Patkar, Mahasweta Devi, Aparna Sen, Sujat Bhadra, Vinayak Sen, Kousik Sen, Bibhas Chakraborty, Pallab Kirtania, Pratul Mukhopadhyay, Shaoli Mitra and others. They always justify, glorify, legitimise and defend the destructive and murderous activities of the Maoists in both the electronic and print media.

3RD TIER

Frontal organizations such as Committee Against Police Atrocities (CAPA), Bandi Mukti Committee, APDR, Lalgarh Sanghati Mancha, PUCL and others.

4TH TIER


Armed cadres with sophisticated arms and ammunitions

WHY PSEUDO INTELLECTUALS SILENT ON MAOIST KILLING OF SECURITY FORCES

The Maoists believe in the “annihilation of class enemies” and in “extreme violence” as a means to armed seizure of state power through guerrilla warfare. With this perspective, participation in elections and engagement with the prevailing ‘democracy’ are rejected. Their actions and ideas are incompatible to a democratic set up.

The CPI (Maoist) is a four-tier organization. The first tier consists of Maoist ideologues, the 2nd the ‘so-called’ intellectuals and human rights organization, the 3rd being its frontal organizations and the 4th the armed cadres.

The Maoist terrorist outfit is actually a perversion of Marxism-Leninism. In fact, it is an organization of assassins, hired killers, extortionists, blackmailers and mercenaries. It reportedly owns a fund amounting to more than 1,500 crores. The operation of the Maoists not only remain concentrated to kidnapping and looting of passengers traveling in trains and buses but also felling and selling of costly trees in collusion with wood smugglers in Jharkhand, Lalgarh, Jangalmahal and other areas. They also blow up bridges and other structures made of low quality materials to destroy proofs and evidences in order to help the contractors in exchange of money. In the name of fighting SEZ they are actually creating their own SEZ (Special Exploitation Zone) wherein these activities can be carried out uninterruptedly in the name of ‘so-called’ revolution and ‘Maoism’.

In last one year (from September, 2008 to August, 2009) the Maoists have killed 253 police personnel in different parts of the country.

Maharashtra is the worst affected state. Here, so far the Maoists have killed 72 police personnel. Next comes Chhattisgarh where 68 policemen have become victim to the Maoist violence. Then comes Jharkhand where 51 police personnel have fallen prey to the Maoists.

So far they have killed a total of 845 security personnel including police in the country. The state wise figure is as hereunder.

Some ‘so-called’ intellectuals as well as ‘pseudo’ human rights activists representing the Maoists have been urging the Governments both at the centre and the states to lay down arms and shun ‘so-called’ state terror as a pre-condition for a dialogue with the Maoists. They are of course intentionally playing into the hands of the antinational terrorist outfit with some ulterior motive despite knowing fully their ultimate aim, objective and modus operandi.

These perverts never condemn one after another brutality perpetrated by the Maoists in different states for the last few years. Abduction, extortion of money at gun point, butchering, open trial & sentencing to death in public and other gruesome activities on the part of the Maoists seem to them a birthright of the perpetrators. On the other hand, whenever the Government arrests any of them or takes any action in the defence of the common people from he Maoist marauders they plunge into the arena making a hue and cry in the name of ‘so-called’ human rights and natural justice for them under the constitution, which the Maoists discard.

LALGARH: IS IT LIBERATED OR RULED BY FEAR? By Praveen Swami (The Hindu dated 26-06-2009)

Is the violence in West Medinipur district really an adivasi uprising?
Land reform has given adivasis a high level of freedom and security
Poll results in the area showed no resentment against CPI(M)
LALGARH: Early this month, as police marched into the forests around Lalgarh, the adivasi residents of Salboni were told, by Maoists, to start building barricades.

Insurgents armed with rifles and side-arms watched over the villagers as they felled trees and dug trenches. Not surprisingly, no one disputed their orders.

But on Monday, Bongaram Lohar summoned courage to speak up on behalf of the dozens of local residents who had been press-ganged into the building work. For his defiance, Mr. Lohar was brutally beaten up and forced to flee the village.

Most commentary has cast the violence in Lalgarh as an expression of primal adivasi rage: rage against being denied development and justice. One critic even claimed the Lalgarh region had, for the past three decades, been “untouched by development.”

But Mr. Lohar’s story — and a mass of empirical evidence — give reason to doubt this telling of the story.

NO DEVELOPMENT?

Back in 1977, after the first Left Front government took power in West Bengal, entire villages were freed from the control of jotdars, or landlords, by the Communist Party of India (Marxist) workers.

Data from West Bengal’s Department of Land and Land reforms shows that till 2002-03, land measuring 16,280 hectares was redistributed to peasants in the blocks of Jhargram, Binpur and Salboni — the areas now under Maoist assault. “In the Jhargram block village where I conduct research”, says Aparajita Bakshi, Senior Research Fellow at the Indian Statistical Institute in Kolkata, “75 per cent of all households are land reform beneficiaries. Of Scheduled Tribe households, no less than 70 per cent gained agricultural land and 90 per cent gained homestead land as a result of land reform.”

Income poverty and deprivation continue to exist throughout the region — but land reform has given adivasis a level of freedom and security their counterparts in the rest of India do not enjoy.

Marketed as the liberation of Lalgarh, Maoist rule, in fact, made the life of most adivasis worse. Income from forest produce, on which most local residents are dependent, dried up. Government programmes intended to mitigate hardship collapsed altogether.

“In November,” says Bhumidhansola resident Manek Singh, “the Maoists forbade us to enter the forests to cut wood. The Forest Department used to pay us Rs.70 a day for this work. Now, no one even enters this area to purchase the leaf-plates we make. We have been left with nothing.”

EXTORTION AND ATTACKS

Faced with extortion and attacks by Maoists, government staff also fled the area. Lalgarh residents told The Hindu that the Integrated Child Development Scheme workers were ordered to pay Rs.1,000 each month; school teachers and staff at the Block Development Office said they were compelled to part with twice as much to local Maoists.
Following the assassination of government doctor Honiran Murmu and staff nurse Bharati Majhi in October, the Lalgarh area has had almost no access to health care.

POLITICS AND POWER

Election data debunks the idea that there is a popular rebellion against the CPI(M) under way in Lalgarh.
In the 2006 elections to the West Bengal Legislative Assembly, the CPI(M) had won six of the seven Assembly seats which together make up the Jhargram Lok Sabha seat: Garhbeta East, Garhbeta West (SC), Salbani, Nayagram (ST), Gopiballavpur and Jhargram. The CPI(M) has held the Jhargram Lok Sabha seat, of which Lalgarh is a part, ever since 1977.

POLICE RAIDS

Last year, the West Bengal Police carried out raids across the Lalgarh area, following a November 2 attempt to assassinate Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee. Fighting between police and Maoist supporters broke out during the raids; several people were injured.

Backed by the Maoists, Trinamool Congress leader Chhatradar Mahato — the brother of the principal accused in the November 2 bombing — set up the Police Santras Birodhi Janaganer Committee (PSBJC), or People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities.

The PSBJC activists blocked roads, shut off police access to the area, and attacked CPI(M) workers.

Prior to this year’s Lok Sabha elections, the Maoists even initiated protests insisting that the police not enter the villages of Boro Pelia, Chhoto Pelia, Dalilpur Chowk and Khas Jungle — all areas where they had a substantial armed presence.

Had the PSBJC represented widespread resentment against the CPI(M), it ought to have showed up in this year’s Lok Sabha elections. But Jhargram constituency swam against the anti-CPI(M) tide. The CPI(M) candidate, Pulin Bihar Baske, polled 5,45,231 votes, giving him a respectable lead over the 2,52,886 claimed by the Congress’ Amrit Hansda. Mr. Baske even won in the Binpur Assembly segment, of which Lalgarh is a part.

RULE OF FEAR

How, then, have the Maoists gained so much influence in Lalgarh? Jharkhand Party candidate Chunibala Hansda had this simple answer for one journalist reporting on the Lok Sabha elections: “People are scared of them”.
Last year, even as the PSBJC was mobilising people against the West Bengal government, the Bharat Jakat Majhi Marwa — an organisation of traditional adivasi community leaders, which is opposed to the CPI(M) — organised a rally to protest Maoist violence. More than 10,000 adivasis gathered in Bhulabheda area of Belpahari on December 9.
Sudhir Mandal, the adivasi leader who organised the rally, was shot dead less than 48 hours later.

WHAT MAMATA BANERJEE AND MAOIST TOP LEADER SAY ABOUT EACH OTHER

The opinion expressed by top Maoist leader Kishanji and Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee in respect of each other in different media from time to time.

KISHANJI:

“Trinamool Congress is a party led by an individual. So, it is possible for it to work for the common people. Mamata Banerjee is the fittest person for the chair of the Chief Minister of West Bengal. So, we want to see her as the next CM.”

MAMATA BANERJEE:

“If Kishanji has really faith in us it is good. I request Kishanji for a dialogue and discussion with us.”

KISHANJI:


“We were with the TMC in Nandigram and Khejuri. Mamata Banerjee is to decide whether she would remain with us in Lalgarh or help the atrocities of the joint forces.”

MAMATA BANERJEE:

“There is no ‘Mao’ or ‘Meu’ in Lalgarh. Here, people are fighting against non-development. We support the ongoing agitation in Lalgarh.”

KISHANJI:

“Mamata Banerjee should take initiative to stop join operation in Lalgarh. She is in the Central Cabinet. She should demand stoppage of state terror.”

MAMATA BANERJEE:

“The joint force is committing atrocities on the people of Lalgarh. The Central Government has not done proper by sending CRPF at the request of the CPI (M). We demand immediate stoppage of joint operation.”

KISHANJI:

“Maoists have not killed anyone in Lalgarh for creating terror. The people have punished the CPI (M) and the police for their atrocities.”

MAMATA BANERJEE:

“Nobody is killing the CPI (M) supporters. The are being killed due to their own internal quarrel.”

KISHANJI:

“I congratulate the intellectuals of Kolkata for supporting the Lalgarh agitation.”

MAMATA BANERJEE:

“The intellectuals have done nothing wrong in going to Lalgarh to extend their support to the Lalgarh agitation led by Chatradhar Mahato. They can act as negotiators for discussion with the Maoists.”

KISHANJI:

“The joint operation has to be stopped. The police have to remain confined to camps. I cannot guarantee the life of the abducted Officer-in-Charge of the Sankrail Police Station.”

MAMATA BANERJEE:


“It is to be considered afresh, whether the joint operation is yielding any result or not. I am a Central Minister. So, I cannot say anything further. It is not possible.”

MAOIST MAMATA BANERJEE HOLDS INDIAN RAILWAYS TO RANSOM

The whole world witnessed with terror and panic how more than 300 Maoist hooligans in the garb of “Committee Against Police Atrocities” (CAPA) stopped the running Bhubaneswar-New Delhi Rajdhani Express at Banstala Railway Station at about 2-45 p.m. on 27-10-2009 and subjected its more than 200 passengers to inhuman torture and terror, both mental and physical, for more than 5 hours at a stretch at gunpoint. Besides looting their belongings, many compartments were damaged severely. The train drivers were also abducted and many passengers were assaulted for no fault. The mob belonging to nearby villages Manikpara, Joalbhanga, Tiyakathi, Kunduldihi, Nalbona and Banstala was not only led by 2 armed women cadres of Maoists but also by Man Singh Kisku of Tiyakathi, Dileswar Mahato of Nalbona and other leaders of Trinamool Congress. The place of the incident falls in the Bandhghara Gram Panchayat near Ward No. 11 of Jhargram Municipality. This Gram Panchayat is run by TMC-Jharkhandi Alliance.

The one and only demand of the gangsters was the release of Chatradhar Mahato, the most beloved Maoist ‘pseudo’ tribal leader of Medha Patkar, Mahasweta Devi and the ‘so-called’ human rights activists, who not only shamelessly and audaciously justify and glorify but also defend all the criminal activities of the Maoists. These ‘so-called’ intellectuals and human right activists have not yet spent a single word to condemn the cowardly act of keeping in captivity innocent passengers including women and children by their dearly loved Maoists for hours together.

It is also most shocking and unfortunate that while addressing a press conference at the same time in New Delhi, Mamata Banerjee did not utter even a single word against the Maoists. Even she avoided naming them, who are every now and then engaged in murdering innocent people and security forces as well as blowing up railway tracks, trains, railway stations, schools, mobile towers, bridge and government buildings in the country. On the other hand, she said that the incident was not the handiwork of the Maoists. She ridiculously and irresponsibly misspent time in trying to put the blame on the CPI (M) for the incident in order to earn petty and narrow political mileage instead of arranging timely measures for the rescue of the endangered passengers. When the Home Ministry of the Central Government very categorically refused any talks with the criminals for a swap, she even wanted to have a discussion with the Maoist gangsters surpassing her limits.

It is proved beyond all doubts that the Indian Railways and its passengers are no longer safe and secure in the hands of Mamata Banerjee who herself is a collaborator of the Maoists and allowing them to destroy national properties in a pre-planned manner.

Many many thanks and congratulations both to the Central Home Minister and the Chief Minister of West Bengal for taking a tough and bold stand in time. Their well-timed intervention enabled safe and sound rescue of the ill-fated passengers.

Last but not the least. The utter irresponsibility and perversion of the Central Minister Sisir Adhikari have surpassed all tolerable limits.

While the mayhem was still going on, he declared that the previous day (26-10-2009) at 7-30 p.m. he had received advance information from a secret source about the incident to take place next day. Now, the following questions arise very naturally and logically.

(1) If so, why did not he inform the matter to his Supremo Mamata Banerjee who is also the Railway Minister of the entire country and the Central Government in which he is a Minister?

(2) Why did not he even inform the matter to the Railway Ministry in the interest of the safety and security of the passengers?

(3) Being a central minister, why did not he inform the intelligence agencies of the country?

(4) Why did not the intelligence agencies of the country and the railway intelligence did not receive any such advance information from their own sources.

(5) When the train was stopped, why few hundred TMC supporters took out processions and rallies at Midnapur Town in support of the detention of the Rajdhani Express and its passengers by the Maoists?

Last but not the least. The mysterious movements of the Central Minister Sisir Adhikari in the evening of the previous day (26-10-2009) have raised many questions.

(1) Why did he go to Midnapur Medical College & Hospital at 7-00 p.m. to see Sahebram Murmu and other Maoists now under treatment for injury received while fighting with joint forces at Lalgarh?

(2) Why did he support the Maoists while addressing a rally in front of the office of the Subdivisional Officer, Midnapur the same day?

(3) Why did he attend a meeting with the Maoists at night of 25-10-2009 in the house of TMC leader Salil Saha at Shalboni? It may be noted that immediately after this meeting the Maoists gave a call for “3 Day Bandh” in the Jangalmahal areas.

The cabinet is a collective responsibility in a democracy. The Prime Minister is accountable to the entire nation for the activities of his ministers. He cannot deny or avoid his responsibility. There are only two options before him now.

(1) He should sack Mamata Banerjee and other ministers belonging to her party immediately and put all of them behind bar for trial for collaborating with anti-national terrorist outfits in waging war against the nation;

OR

(2) Take immediate necessary steps to desist them from taking recourse to such anti-national and anti-people activities.

PSEUDO INTELLECTUALS AND HUMAN RIGHTS BENT UPON SUBVERTING INDIAN CONSTITUTION

Some ‘so-called’ intellectuals as well as ‘pseudo’ human rights activists representing the Maoists have been urging the Governments both at the centre and the states to lay down arms and shun ‘so-called’ state terror as a pre-condition for a dialogue with the Maoists. They are of course intentionally playing into the hands of the antinational terrorist outfit with some ulterior motive despite knowing fully their ultimate aim, objective and modus operandi.

These perverts never condemn one after another brutality perpetrated by the Maoists in different states for the last few years. Abduction, extortion of money at gun point, butchering, open trial & sentencing to death in public and other gruesome activities on the part of the Maoists seem to them a birthright of the perpetrators. On the other hand, whenever the Government arrests any of them or takes any action in the defence of the common people from he Maoist marauders they plunge into the arena making a hue and cry in the name of ‘so-called’ human rights and natural justice for them under the constitution, which the Maoists discard.

The Maoists believe in the “annihilation of class enemies” and in “extreme violence” as a means to armed seizure of state power through guerrilla warfare. With this perspective, participation in elections and engagement with the prevailing ‘democracy’ are rejected. Their actions and ideas are incompatible to a democratic set up.

As part of its strategy, the cadres of both the CPI and the CPI (M) are declared as class enemies; whereas Mamata Banerjee, her party TMC and SUCI are considered class friends.

It supports all the ‘so-called’ nationalities’ struggles going in different parts of the country including ‘Gorkhaland’ and ‘Kamtapuri’ agitations for separate homelands, armed struggle in ‘Kashmir’ by Pakistani supported militants for independence and all secessionist movements of northeast.

Its armed force have 7000 armed cadres, 6000 fire arms including a large number of rifles of AK variety, light machine guns, self-loading rifles, carbines, 303s, grenades, revolvers, pistols and landmine technologies. It has also a technical squad which manufactures 12 bore guns and its ammunitions, repairs all kinds of weapons and assembles grenades.
This Maoist terrorist outfit is actually a perversion of Marxism-Leninism. It is an organization of assassins, hired killers, extortionists, blackmailers and mercenaries. It reportedly owns a fund amounting to more than 1,500 crores. The operation of the Maoists not only remain concentrated to kidnapping and looting of passengers traveling in trains and buses but also felling and selling of costly trees in collusion with wood smugglers in Jharkhand, Lalgarh, Jangalmahal and other areas. They also blow up bridges and other structures made of low quality materials to destroy proofs and evidences in order to help the contractors in exchange of money. In the name of fighting SEZ they are actually creating their own SEZ (Special Exploitation Zone) wherein these activities can be carried out uninterruptedly in the name of ‘so-called’ revolution and ‘Maoism’.

It must be underlined that contrary to the claims made by a section of pro-Maoist intellectuals that they are revolutionaries; these self-styled Maoists have nothing in common with the work and practice of the great revolutionary Mao-Ze Dong. During the lifetime and after the demise of Comrade Mao, the Chinese Communist Party (CPC) never used the term ‘Maoism,’ to denote a new theory. Rather, in the literature of the CPC and in the documents of their Party Congress's, the CPC has said that it follows Marxism-Leninism and Mao-ze Dong Thought.

It is evident through the interpretation of the CPC how Mao applied Marxism-Leninism to the specific conditions obtaining in China basing on its special characteristics. This is known as Mao-ze Dong thought. Those who are using the term ‘Maoism,’ are completely disregarding and dishonoring the vast revolutionary activities of Mao. These self-styled Maoists have degenerated into armed groups and have no qualms in killing poor people who dare oppose their extortionist terror
.

This terrorist outfit is active in 156 districts of 17 states that include Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Bihar, Orissa, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Karnataka, Tamilnadu, Uttaranchal and Kerala. It is responsible for 90% of the violence in the country. 721 people were killed in 1,591 Maoist attacks in 2008 and till August this year, 1,405 attacks claimed 580 lives spread over 11 states.

Maoist influence runs through a stretch of territory referred to as the "Red Corridor". This extends from the in Andhra Pradesh through and up to Bihar. Their objective of 'liberating' their proposed “Compact Revolutionary Zone” (CRZ) in other words “Red Corridor” extends from Nepal through Bihar Jharkhand in the North to Maharashtra
, Chhattisgarh, Dandakaranya region (forest areas of Central India) and Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh in the South. Areas in western Orissa and eastern Uttar Pradesh are also under Maoist influence. And they have some presence in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka as well. In most areas of the “Red Corridor” they operate as a hit-and-run force.

The intention is to have a continuous stretch of territory under their influence and control, with the ultimate goal of eventually "liberating" the entire zone. Large parts of this territory have already been brought under the extremist influence with only some link-ups now necessary in the remaining pockets to make the CRZ a reality. Once achieved, the CRZ will virtually drive a wedge through the vital areas of the country, and would help crystallize linkages with other Maoist groups operating in South Asia.

Districts that fall in the “Red Corridor” are rich in minerals like iron ore and bauxite. But the people living there, who are largely Adivasi or tribal are desperately poor. Exploited by forest officials, contractors, mining companies and middlemen and neglected by the state, villagers in the Red Corridor are among the worst off in the country. And it is to liberate them from their oppressors and the Indian state that the Maoists claim to be waging their armed struggle.

It is true the Maoists have improved life for the Adivasis by forcing local officials to dig wells or pay better wages to the villagers. But over time, the liberators have turned oppressors themselves. Villagers who don't obey the Maoists have been killed and Maoist violence stands in the way of development projects. The Maoists have worsened the daily lives of some of India's most exploited people.

As a matter of fact, the Maoists want to create a new independent domain within the country where the Indian Constitution shall not be applicable. This one and only one aim and objective will be achieved with the help of other anti-national outfits, ‘so-called’ intellectuals, ‘pseudo’ human rights activists, a section of media glorifying them and forces across the border.

MAMATA BANERJEE AND DRAMA OF HER PARTY LEADERS

On 15th of this month, Partha Chatterjee, Opposition Leader of West Bengal Legislative Assembly and 4 others MLAs belonging to TMC enacted a high-pitched drama most illegally before the chamber of Shri Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, Chief Minister, at Writers’ Buildings demanding his arrest on illogical and unreasonable grounds. They staged a ‘Dharna’ from 1-28 p.m. to 4-25 p.m. inviting the entire media for coverage and widespread publicity. The whole exercise was aimed at only one purpose of diverting the attention of the people from the exposed conspiracy hatched between Mamata Banerjee and Maoists at the residence of Subhaprasanna, who is now called the modern Rasputin of West Bengal, at night of 14th instant. The matter did not end here.

Their supremo Mamata Banerjee also incited her unruly and undisciplined supporters through “Star Anand” her own electronic media to take recourse to all sorts of destructive and obstructive methods.

The whole population of Kolkata and daily commuters were subjected to inhuman torture and sufferings in the name of blockade of roads and trains.
The normal life of the common people was brought to a standstill.

By winning some Parliamentary seats, these arrogant and bigheaded leaders think that they have obtained the license to do anything they desire or deem fit and proper. The public is at the mercy of their whims and caprices.

It is not known how long the common people will go on tolerating this kind of hooliganism and atrocities on the part of handful rowdies without any protest.

MAMATA BANERJEE AND HER ABUSIVE LANGUAGE

It is an open secret that Mamata Banerjee has always been habituated in using offensive and filthy language against Jyoti Basu, Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and other leaders of the Left Front and the CPI (M). She came to limelight by defacing a police officer in the eighties. Very recently she used objectionable words in respect of the existing Chief Secretary, Government of West Bengal and the Commissioner of Police, Kolkata.

There are Sonia Gandhi, Sushma Swaraj, Jay Lalitha, Mayawati, Deepa Das Munshi, Ambika Soni, Shiela Dikshit and many women leaders in the country. But they never talk in the language and style of Mamata Banerjee. All of them maintain as much soberness, decorum, etiquette and protocol as are possible in public life.

Her disciples and party leaders are also not less than her in any respect. A few glaring examples of the same are enough to substantiate the same.

Just on the eve of Parliamentary Elections, 2009 Shri Kalyan Banerjee, the then TMC Candidate, while addressing an election meeting at Serampore, Hooghly used most abusive and filthy language against Shri Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, Chief Minister of West Bengal. The Election Commission of India was forced to reprimand him for the same.

Similarly, Tapas Paul, M.P., used dirty language against Congress Party while addressing a rally at Krishnanagar, Nadia. He termed Congress as “a dog licking the feet of CPI (M)”.

At about 1-30 a.m. on 14-10-2009 Soma Das and two other reporters of the Bengali TV News Channel “24 Ghanta” were brutally heckled and manhandled physically by the Central Ministers Mamata Banerjee and Mukul Roy, Purnendu Bose and Dola Sen, the last two being Naxalite leaders in front of the residence of modern Rasputin Subhaprasanna. During this on going, Mukul Roy called Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee by names of his father.

Again, Shri Sisir Adhikari, Minister of State, Government of India, took recourse to abusive and offensive language while addressing mass meeting on 21-10-2009.

There is no denying the fact that this use of language is prevalent in the underworld only. It is certainly not in keeping with the vocabulary and cultural heritage of Bengal.

As a matter of fact, Mamata Banerjee and her colleagues have introduced the language of the underworld in the politics of West Bengal without considering its dire consequences on the society and the future generation.

Their success in the recently held Parliamentary Elections has emboldened them further.

It is increasingly being felt that if they are not taught a lesson immediately, the society has to pay high prices for the same in the future.

UNLAWFUL ACTIVITIES PREVENTION ACT, 2009 AGAINST MAMATA BANERJEE?

In recent times, the brutalities and atrocities of the Maoists in different states have surpassed all limitations of tolerance. Thousands of innocent people, government officials and policed personnel have not only been butchered by them but they have also blown up schools, railway stations, railway tracks, mobile towers, police stations, government offices, post offices and so on.

Both Dr. Manmohan Singh and P. Chidambaram have been repeatedly saying unequivocally that the Maoists are the single largest threat to the internal security of the nation. But Mamata Banerjee has been keeping close touch with the Maoists to get some petty and narrow political mileage. Her party along with Maoists is engaged in one after another murder and destructive activities in West Bengal. Being an important Minister on the cabinet of Dr. Manmohan Singh, she is not only openly criticizing the joint operation carried out by the Central Government and the State Government against the Maoists in Lalgarh but also demanding immediate stoppage of the same.

This action on her part has been casting serious aspersion on the goodwill and reputation of Dr. Manmohan Singh and his ministry. Moreover, the common people are utterly confused and worried over moving of Dr. Singh and Mamata Banerjee in two irreconcilably different ways.

It is not understood why does he still tolerate her? Even if she and her 18 members withdraw from his ministry, it will not be affected in any manner, whatsoever, because he enjoys the support of more than 300 members in the Parliament.

He should, therefore, sack her immediately from his cabinet in national interest rising above party politics and use “Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, 2009” against her immediately for patronizing antinational terrorist outfits.

She is certainly not above the law of the land.

INDIAN RAILWAYS IN UTTER MESS

The Indian Railways was a symbol of pride, punctuality and comfort till recently. Since the day Mamata Banerjee has taken the charge of the Railway Ministry, it has in fact landed in a state of utter mess and anarchy. Instead of serving the whole nation as a Central Minister, she is more interested in remaining in West Bengal most of the time inciting her supporters to create law and order problems with an eye to the next assembly elections to be held in 2011.Besides, she is engaged in the drama of inaugurating one after another old trains in new names spending extravagantly from public exchequer. Moreover, she has been imposing her whimsical and fanciful decisions on the railways for petty political gains. Following are the adverse affects created as a result of her drama, inefficiency, total apathy and whimsical decisions.

· Frequent Railway accidents have become a common phenomenon.

· Dacoities and loot of railway passengers throughout the country has increased manifold.

· The safety and security of the railway passengers are at stake.

· Developmental works in the Indian Railways have practically come to a standstill.

· The Indian Railways have been incurring heavy losses due to accommodation of some ‘so-called’ intellectuals of her liking on different newly created committees at huge costs.

· The blowing up of railway stations, railway tracks and other valuable properties of the Indian Railways by her trusted ally the Maoists has increased manifold.

· Most of the train donot maintain time.

A POEM ADDRESSED TO MAHASWETA DEVI AND HER TEAM OF 'PSEUDO' INTELLECTUALS

Mahasweta Devi is proud for receiving “Magsaysay Award” which was introduced in the name of President Ramon del Fierro Magsaysay who was responsible for the butchering of thousands of Communists and innocent people in Phillippines. If she were a genuine Leftist or if she had possessed minimum conscience or morality or ethics or democratic point of view, she would not have cerrtainly accepted the award introduced in the name of a butcher.

Below is a poem addressed to the ‘pseudo’ apolitical intellectual Mahasweta Devi and her team of Neo Fascists who have sold out their heart, soul and conscience to serve big business & media houses and imperialism for passing life in air-conditioned rooms and travelling in flights, air-condtioned trains & cars.

APOLITICAL INTELLECTUALS"
Guatemalan guerrilla fighter and poet Otto René Castillo
(translated by Margaret Randall)

One day the apolitical
intellectuals
of my country
will be interrogated
by the simplest
of our people.

They will be asked
what they did
when their nation died out
slowly,
like a sweet fire
small and alone.

No one will ask them
about their dress,
their long siestas
after lunch,
no one will want to know
about their sterile combats
with "the idea
of the nothing"
no one will care about
their higher financial learning.

They won't be questioned
on Greek mythology,
or regarding their self-disgust
when someone within them
begins to diethe coward's death.

They'll be asked nothing
about their absurdjustifications,
born in the shadow
of the total lie.

On that day
the simple men will come.

Those who had no place
in the books and poems
of the apolitical intellectuals,
but daily delivered
their bread and milk,
their tortillas and eggs,
those who drove their cars,
who cared for their dogs and gardens
and worked for them,
and they'll ask:

"What did you do when the poor
suffered, when tenderness
and lifeburned out of them?"
Apolitical intellectuals
of my sweet country,
you will not be able to answer.

A vulture of silence
will eat your gut.

Your own misery
will pick at your soul.

And you will be mute in your shame.

WHY MAHASWETA DEVI AND HER TEAM SILENT ON GRUESOME MURDERS BY MAOISTS

Mahasweta Devi and modern Rasputin Subhaprasanna and their team of ‘pseudo’ intellectuals remained silent when:

· Maoists in Lalgarh and Jangalmahal areas butchered 33 police personnel.

· The ambulance carrying Dr. Dhaniram Mandi, Nurse Bharati Majhi and Driver Pranay Mishir was blown up by Maoists killing all of them.

· Three Election Commission (EC) personnel, Prasad Banerjee, Sougata Karmakar and Sanjay Das (driver), were killed when Maoists triggered a landmine blast targeting their convoy after polling in Jamboni on 30th April, 2009.

· The Maoist-TMC-Congress-SUCI Alliance did not allow the relatives to dispose of the dead bodies of Salku Soren and 3 other poor tribals butchered by Maoists for 5 days.

· The Maoists and TMC workers danced and sang around the bodies of Salku Soren and 3 others for 5 days in the same manner as is practiced by cannibals.

· 2 policemen Sabbir Molla and Kanchan Gorai were abducted by Maoists on 30-07-2009. Still their whereabouts are not known.

· Kartick Mahato, a teacher, was butchered by Maoists within the classroom of a primary school in front of his students.

· The Maoists killed two police officers Dibakar Bhattacharjee and Swapan Roy within Sankrail Police Station in West Midnapur district abducted the Officer-in-Charge Atindra Narayan Dutta, looted 6 rifles, 1 revolver, 4 pistols and Rs. 9,27,000/- from the adjacent State Bank of India on 20-10-2009.

These hypocrites and perverts are not seen organizing processions, demonstrations, meetings, seminars and so on against the killing of innocent people by their darling Maoists, who are nothing but modern form of Fascists with red flag. On the other hand, they are shamelessly advocating for the “human rights” of the butchers.

It is useless to expect anything positive from these perverts because their “Friend, Philosopher and Guide” Mahasweta Devi did not hesitate to accept the “Magsaysay Award”, which was introduced in the name of President Ramon del Fierro Magsaysay who was responsible for the butchering of thousands of Communists and innocent people in Phillippines. If she were a genuine Leftist or if she had possessed mimimum conscience or morality or ethics or democratic point of view, she would not have cerrtainly accepted the award introduced in the name of a butcher.

INTELLECTUAL BANKRUPTCY AND LACK OF PRAGMATISM OF MAHASWETA DEVI AND HER TEAM

The bankruptcy and lack of pragmatism of ‘pseudo’ intellectual Mahaseta Devi and her team of neo-Nazist intellectuals stand exposed. So long, they tried to pretend that they are apolitical. They are not affiliated to any one political party. They are committed to the democratic environment and freedom of speech. Anyone without a political banner can join their movement provided her/his concern about the alleged ongoing left-terror in the state is genuine. But during last Parliamentary Elections, 2009 they not only nakedly sang, danced and performed feats and tricks of jugglary i.e. “Madari Ka Khel” to the tune of Mamata Banerjee but also worked wholeheartedly in favour of her rainbow alliance.

But the question arises who led and funded these hypocrites.

There is no deying the fact that the ‘Swajan’ activists are being mentored by the print media “Ananada Bazaar Patrika” and the electronic media “Star Anand” known for their notorious anti-Communist stand. This is the same newspaper which, during Indo-China conflict in 1962, played an important role in spreading jingoism in the name of freedom of speech. It published a regular column named ‘Freedom of the Artist’ where almost all the prestigious authors and artists wrote about their disillusionment with the Communist system. Satyajit Ray did not take part in that procession of slanders, and an angry ABP wrote the editorial ‘Why is Ray silent in such a crisis of the country?’

This is the same newspaper that called for banning the leftist playwright Utpal Datta’s drama ‘Kallol’ which was based on the Royal Indian Navy Mutiny. The Congress goons attacked a show and stopped it. In response, ABP called for a public boycott of all those artists who acted in the play.

So, there is small doubt about the meaning of this seeming apolitics when it is known that ABP has been backing the efforts of these intellectuals for the last two years. Firstly it was named ‘Sushil Samaj’, then ‘Nagarik Samaj’ (literally more close to civil society), then ‘Biddwajan” (intellectuals), and lastly, ‘Swajan’. There seems to be a hard attempt to sell the newly invented product in the market. It is proved beyond doubt that the ‘pseudo’ intelligentsia have been playing a puppet in the hands of big media and international finance capital.

Interestingly, the voice of these intellectuals can’t be differentiated from that of the proponents of the neo-liberal economy who say that politics is dirty and development should be freed from political colour. Our ‘so-called’ intellectuals also say that politics is dirty and struggle against development should be freed from political colour.

Is this so that big media houses encash this apolitics to create a market of anti-communism, a market where freedom of speech and right to vote will walk hand in hand with the idea of anti-Stalinism (anti CPI (M) in our case). There definitely lies a nexus between the big media houses and international finance capital. Their pro-investment, neo liberal strategies have a mask of apolitics to attract the rising middle class of India. But in reality, it only strengthens the hand of US imperialism and neo-Nazism. For example, the same ABP who mentored the ‘Swajan’ activists in their so called anti neo- liberal struggle, is wholeheartedly supported the Indo-US nuclear deal, US War on Iraq & Afghanistan, and launched attack on the leftists, especially the CPI (M), for blocking the agreement.

The CPI (M), on the other hand, has a communist ideology, a concrete agenda and specific political directives. Among the cult of the erosion of politics, the CPI (M) is the rarest of the rare examples. Therefore its presence is dangerous.

Hence, it is not surprising that these intellectuals don’t utter a single word against the rise of finance capital, neo-liberal aggression and its Indian collaborators, the BJP and the Congress, or their sister concern in West Bengal, the TMC). They never raised their voice against the Hyde act or US naval activities, or against the New Economic Policy of the Centre. The only target is the CPI (M) as the epitome of suppression of voice, corruption, rape of democracy and injustice to the poor.

MAHASWETA DEVI PLAYS INTO THE HANDS OF IMPERIALISM

‘Pseudo’ Intellectual Mahasweta Devi and her team of hypocrites declare that they are apolitical. They are not affiliated to any one political party. They are committed to the democratic environment and freedom of speech. Anyone without a political banner can join their movement provided her/his concern about the alleged ongoing left-terror in the state is genuine.

Interesting parallels from an article written under the caption ‘The CIA and the Cultural Cold War Revisited’ by James Petras published in November 1999 in the Monthly Review can be drawn.

The article details how the CIA penetrated and influenced a vast array of cultural organizations during the cold war. Some parts of the article detailing the attitudes of intellectuals funded or promoted by such organizations are furnished below.

“What was particularly bizarre about this collection of CIA-funded intellectuals was …… their pretense that they were disinterested seekers of truth, iconoclastic humanists, freespirited intellectuals, or artists for art’s sake, who counterposed themselves to the corrupted "committed" house "hacks" of the Stalinist apparatus.” (p 2)

( Observe the parrotted allegation of ‘pseudo’ intellectuals taught by “Ananda Bazaar Patrika” that anti-CPI (M) playwrights can’t stage their plays)

“The CIA was especially keen on publishing disillusioned ex-communists like Silone, Koestler, and Gide…… None of these prestigious intellectuals dared to raise any doubts or questions regarding U.S. support of the mass killing in colonial Indochina and Algeria, the witch hunt of U.S. intellectuals or the paramilitary (Ku Klux Klan) lynchings in the southern United States. Such banal concerns would only "play into the hands of the Communists," “(p 3)

(Thespian Bibhash Chakrabarty or Kaushik Sen were once seen sticking to Shri Budhadeb Bhattacharjee like leeches for favours. Afer achieving all what they wanted, they have changed side now. They have certainly added some glamour to the ‘Swajan’ rallies. They did not raise a single voice against Trinamool Congress (TMC)-led Bhumi Uchchhed Pratirodh Committee (BUPC) atrocities in Nandigram or one after another Maoist killing of CPI (M) activists in West Medinipur, Purulia and Bankura or thousands of poor people being driven out of their homes into refugee camps for the crime of being CPI (M) supporters. More interestingly, many Naxalite leaders like Purnendu Basu or Dola Sen who are close to Swajan said that such activities should not be condemned too much because that will strengthen the hand of CPI (M).)

“Many prestigious writers, poets, artists, and musicians proclaimed their independence from politics and declared their belief in art for art’s sake. The dogma of the free artist or intellectual, as someone disconnected from political engagement, gained ascendancy and is pervasive to this day.”(p 4)

(Almost all of our ‘Swajan’ intellectuals are saying that they are apolitical because all the political parties are dirty. They are only humanists, and against all form of violence. Democratic movements, according to them, would emerge spontaneously from the masses and without any political hue)

“CIA realized that, in order to undermine the anti-NATO trade unionists and intellectuals, it needed to find (or invent) a Democratic Left to engage in ideological warfare…... The Democratic Left was essentially used to combat the radical left and to provide an ideological gloss on U.S. hegemony in Europe…. Their job was not to question or demand, but to serve the empire in the name of "Western democratic values." (p 5)

(Our ultra-left politicians, along with the Maoists, are undoubtedly doing a good job in denouncing the CPI (M), the former in political and intellectual fields, the latter through the line of annihilation. And all of this is being done for the sake of democracy in this state. Even the Maoists in their pamphlets are exhorting that there is no democratic environment in West Bengal)

This Democratic Left’s anti-CPI (M) rhetorical ejaculations, humanist speeches and proclamations of faith in democratic values and freedom, were a useful ideological cover for the heinous crimes of the Maoist-TMC murderers and their lies and slanders about thousands of cases of rape and infanticide in Nandigram (whereas not a single case was found) and non-development in Lalgarh. If anti-Stalinism was the opium of the Democratic Left during the Cold War, human rights interventionism has the same narcotizing effect today, and deludes contemporary Democratic Leftists.

PSEUDO INTELLECTUAL MAHASWETA DEVI AND HER NEO FASCIST GANG

Taking full advantage of their esteemed profession and high position in the society, the ‘so-called’ intellectuals represented by few film actors, actresses, poets, singers, painters, stage and screen personalities adorned with lipstick, powder, facial make-ups, red ribbon tied around the forehead and other ornamental materials often visit Lalgarh in order to not only extend moral, technical and logistic support to the murderer Chatradhar Mahato and other Maoists working in the garb of “Police Santrash Birodhi Janasadharner Committee” (PSBJC) but also supply them arms, ammunition and money as well as help them in creating total lawlessness.

The ‘pseudo’ intellectuals habituated to live in air-conditioned palatial buildings and travel in air-conditioned flights and cars have started talking much about ‘poverty’ and “under development” amongst tribals. Did these clowns born with silver spoons ever experience what poverty is? These hypocrites have never been found getting involved in any sort of social work either in their localities or anywhere else. They have also never visited Lalgarh with food, clothings, books, pens, pencils, medicines and other basic needs for the poor tribals and their children. Throughout their life they remained engaged in amassing wealth and property. Now these ‘so-called’ intellectuals sold out by way of being on the pay roll of big business houses and imperialists are entrusted with the job of destabilizing the Left Front Government in West Bengal at any cost and anyhow.

The ‘so-called’ poverty of tribals in Lalgarh is nothing but an unacceptable excuse on the part of these ‘pseudo’ intellectuals who think themselves to be above the law of the land.

The Maoists observed “TWO DAYS VIOLENT AND DESTRUCTIVE BANDH” in the entire country demanding openly the release of their three top leaders Kobad Gandhi, Chatradhar Mahato and Chandrabhusan Yadav. But these perverted intellectuals playing into the hands of anti-national forces are still hell bent on proving that Chatradhar Mahato is a tribal leader but not a Maoist.

The Maoist movement in Lalgarh started with an attempt to murder the Chief Minister on 3rd November, 2008. In their subsequent demands, the Maoists never put forward any economic demand. All their demands were political relating to surrender by the Government, physically kneeling down of the Government Officials and winding up all police stations from Jangalmahal areas consisting of three districts including Lalgarh so as to create a free zone of Maoists. In order to achieve their goal they have started butchering CPI (M) leaders and cadres. The Maoists have already paralyzed the normal life in the entire Jangalmahal area.

The frauds have not uttered even a single word against the attempt of murder on the Chief Minister or other brutalities and atrocities perpetrated by the Maoists.

It is useless to expect anything positive from these self-centered hypocrites who have been suffering from intellectual bankruptcy and lack of pragmatism. Their “Friend, Philosopher and Guide” Mahasweta Devi is also not an exception to this. She talks so much about principle and democracy. But she did not hesitate to accept the “Magsaysay Award”, which was introduced in the name of President Ramon del Fierro Magsaysay who was responsible for the butchering of thousands of Communists and innocent people in Phillippines. If she were a genuine Leftist or if she had possessed mimimum conscience or morality or ethics or democratic point of view, she would not have cerrtainly accepted the award introduced in the name of a butcher.

KISHANJI, TOPMOST MOAIST LEADER, ON MAMATA BANERJEE

18TH JUNE 2009

Maoist leader Kishanji: “People will block the roads, the armed forces that come will be taught a lesson, the central govt., the Buddhadeb govt. will be taught a lesson…We are asking Mamata too, she was with us in Nandigram…now we want to know what stand she will take. She is now in the cabinet, the sole member from her party… The tribals here are sitting in protest against the Paramilitary forces, ready to fight them. Which side will Mamata support is what we want to know.” (NDTV)

20TH JUNE 2009

Kishanji: “She is playing a political game. Even though she is a member of the Central Cabinet, she has not said a single word against sending Central forces to Lalgarh. Now, to gain sympathy in West Bengal, she is saying that the police and the CPI (M) unleashed a reign of terror in Jangalmahal. This is clearly a case of double standards on her part. The mask has fallen from her face…After the Lalgarh movement started, Mamata Banerjee visited Lalgarh. The locals allowed her to visit this place. But now she will not be able to come to Lalgarh or any part of Jangalmahal. We have also decided that we will prevent her from entering Nandigram and Singur, where we were part of the movement.” (Asian Age)

22ND JUNE 2009

Kishanji: “Mamata’s real interest is to grab power in West Bengal. Had she been sincere, she would have stepped down from the Union Cabinet because the Centre has joined hands with the state government to unleash a reign of terror in Lalgarh” (India Today)

3RD OCTOBER, 2009

“Mamata Banerjee is the fittest person to become the next Chief Minister of Bengal… We want to see her reaching the position…. We shall work in enabling her to gain this goal… She should snap immediately her ties with the Congress. We support all the decisions and activities of TMC…. Mamata Banerjee and her party alone is strong enough to gain majority in the next assembly elections to be held in 2011…She should ………” (Ananda Bazaar Patrika, Mamata Banerjee’s own mouthpiece)

WHY "STAR ANAND" AND "ANANDA BAZAAR PATRIKA" ARE SILENT ON ASSAULT OF JOURNALISTS BY MAMATA BANERJEE AND HER COLLEAGUES

At about 1-30 a.m. on 14-10-2009 Soma Das and two other reporters of the Bengali TV News Channel “24 Ghanta” were brutally heckled and manhandled physically by the Central Ministers Mamata Banerjee and Mukul Roy, Naxalite leaders Purnendu Bose and Dola Sen, so-called human rights activist Sujat Bhadra and others for covering news in front of the house of painter Subhaprasanna, painter, who is at present known as the modern Rasputin of West Bengal. Most abusive and filthy language was used against them. Mukul Roy even called the Chief Minister by father. Dola Sen threatened Soma Das with rape. Not only that. Mamata Banerjee has implicated all the three in a false case of “Attempt to murder”. Their cameras were broken to pieces and Press Identity Cards were snatched. All of them were forced to remain confined within the concerned police station for more four hours. The hoodlums of Mamata Banerjee and Maoists physically tortured them within the police station.

What is the fact behind the incident?

A get together in the name of “Bijoya Sammilini” was arranged at the residence of Subhaprasanna at Salt Lake City on 13-10-2009 from 6-00 p.m. Representatives of all the anti-CPI (M) forces including pseudo intellectuals were invited. Two top journalists - one from “Star Anand” and the other from the “Ananda Bazaar Patrika” were also invitees for their pro-Maoist and pro-Mamata role. Three Maoist linkmen were also present. The meeting was actually called for discussing how to free Chatradhar Mahato, the dreaded Maoist of Lalgarh now in jail, and how to organize the intellectuals in favour of the Maoists and their atrocities as was done during the Nandigram episode. The so-called function continued till 1-00 a.m. next day. A second meeting was reportedly scheduled to be held at CD Block between the top Maoist ideologue Kishanji and Mamata Banerjee in the presence of selected Maoist leaders, so-called intellectuals and a particular human rights activist.

As this conspiratorial game plan was exposed, Mamata Banerjee and her associates got furious and took recourse to assault and humiliation of the reporters of “24 Ghanta” out of frustration.

Both the reporters of “Star Anand” and the “Ananda Bazaar Patrika” which talk so much about the freedom of journalists not only maintained studied silence during the entire incident but also allowed the humiliation of the three reporters to take place without any protest.
Both the Calcutta Press Club and the Calcutta Jouranlists Association have condemned the incident.

It is high time the people of the state should stand united against these conspirators who are bent upon pushing the state and its people into fire.

"STAR ANAND" A BENGALI NEWS CHANNEL BECOMES THE UNOFFICIAL CHANNEL OF MAMATA BANERJEE AND HER ALLIANCE

The fundamental objective of journalism is to serve the people with news, views, comments and information on matters of public interest, in a fair, accurate, unbiased, sober and decent manner.

Throwing all code of ethics and media guidelines to the winds, the Bengali TV News Channel “Star Anand” has become the mouthpiece of Mamata Banerjee. Its one and only aim is to instal Miss Banerjee as the next Chief Minister of West Bengal anyway and at any cost.

If any watches this news channel minutely he will find that it believes in the theory of “One Nation, One Party and One Leader” as done by Hitler. During his period the entire media was misused nakedly to project him and his thoughts. Similarly, the “Star Anand” has been projecting Mamata Banerjee as ‘Goddess” and forcing its viewers to digest her irresponsible and ridiculous thoughts and clownings day in and day out. Discussions by panels consisting of blind anti-CPI (M) intellectuals are organized in this channel. It does not stop here. The serious law and order problems created throughout the state by the rainbow Maoist-TMC-SUCI-Congress alliance and the brutal murders of CPI (M) leaders and cadres by it are not only justified but also glorified on this or that pretext.

Each and every single reporting aired by “Star Anand” pertaining to CPI (M) and the Left Front is based on distortions of fact, slanderous campaign, untruthfulness, defamatory or derogatory imputations, inaccuracy, partiality, unfairness and indecency. If Hitler and/or his Propaganda Minister Dr. Joseph Goebbels were alive, they would have hung their heads in shame to see that their appropriate successor in the “Star Anand” has surpassed them in every matter of fraudulency, deception, dishonesty, distortion of fact, manufacture and concoction of false & fake news, slanderous campaign, unfairness and what not.

It has become as clear as crystal that the “Star Anand” is nothing but the official news channel of Mamata Banerjee and her rainbow alliance.

"ANANDA BAZAAR PATRIKA" BECOMES THE NEW MOUTHPIECE AND PROJECTOR OF MAMATA BANERJEE

The Constitution of India gives editors and journalists the fundamental right to publish and print news or any kind of information and to comment and criticize on public affairs. It includes the right not to publish or comment as well. However, the freedom of the press is not absolute; neither is the freedom of expression.

The fundamental objective of journalism is to serve the people with news, views, comments and information on matters of public interest, in a fair, accurate, unbiased, sober and decent manner.

Throwing all code of ethics and media guidelines to the winds, the “Ananda Bazaar Patrika” is hell bent on disgracing, defaming, tarnishing and discrediting CPI (M) and its allies on this or that pretext.

As a matter of fact, “Ananda Bazaar Patrika” has always been not only biased but also prejudiced towards the C.P.I. (M), the Left Front and the Left Front Government. It never follows minimum journalistic ethics and fairness while publishing news in respect of CPI (M) and the Left Front Government. Now-a-days, its sole and only political aim is to instal Mamata Banerjee as the next Chief Minister of West Bengal by any how and at any cost. So, all their reporting is guided by this game plan in mind. So it has been glorifying the Maoist butchers as heroes and justifying the murders of CPI (M) leaders and cadres by them. It has been turning day into night and night into day. Every single news and reporting in respect of CPI (M) and the Left Front are based on distortions of fact, slanderous campaign, untruthfulness, defamatory or derogatory imputations, inaccuracy, partiality, unfairness and indecency. If Hitler and/or his Propaganda Minister Dr. Joseph Goebbels were alive, they would have hung their heads in shame to see that their appropriate successors in the “Ananda Bazaar Patrika” and others such as ‘Bartaman’, ‘Pratidin’ ‘Sangbad’ “The Statesman” following it have surpassed them in every matter of fraudulency, deception, dishonesty, distortion of fact, manufacture and concoction of false & fake news, slanderous campaign, unfairness and what not.

Old people will not forget the role of “Ananda Bazaar Patrika” during 1967-1972. During this period, it had glorified the Naxalites as heroes and their action of individual killings. The Naxalites had killed hundreds of CPI (M) people in connivance with Congress, police, RAW and hardened criminals. Thousands of people were made refugees by evicting them from their shelter and means of livelihood. At that time the “Ananda Bazaar Patrika” acted as the ambassador of Congress-Naxalite Alliance.

The “Ananda Bazaar Patrika” is so much obsessed with anti-CPI (M) politics that even a slight rumour or gossip involving CPI (M) occupies its headings of the front page.

MAHASWETA DEVI – MOST TRUSTED ANTI-COMMUNIST INTELLECTUAL OF IMPERIALISM

Today Mahasweta Devi, the Bengali novelist and so-called champion of tribal communities, is the “Friend, Philosopher and Guide” of the Maoists in West Bengal.
Instead of big capitalists, moneylenders, wood smugglers and big landlords, the Maoists have made CPI (M) and the mainstream Leftist Movement their prime target. Their aim and objective is to bring Fascist oriented Mamata Banerjee to power in West Bengal any how and at any cost. All the blind anti-Communist forces have stood behind the Maoists to dislodge the Left Front Government. Mahasweta Devi is the symbol of the cultural –cum-intellectual front of this rainbow alliance. The imperialists and big business houses have entrusted her to organise the intellectuals against the CPI (M) and the mainstrem leftists. The Maoists and all other forces politically opposed to the CPI (M) hold regular meetings with her at her residence to chalk out plan and programme for dislodging the Left Front Government. The brutal murders of the innocent people by the Maoist-TMC butchers taking place one after another in Lalgarh is the part and parcel of this ill-designed game plan financed, guided and supported by the imperialists and big business houses. Today the entire tribal population of Lalgarh and Jangalmahal areas of West Bengal has been landed in a dangerious situation by the rainbow alliance and Mahasweta Devi. Their life, shelter and means of livelihood are at stake.

In order to prove Mahasweta’s genius and versatility and justify her anti-social and anti-people misdeeds it is often argued boastfully that she is a receipant of Magsaysay Award which is considered the Asian equivalent of the Nobel prize. Mahasweta Devi is the 36th woman and 35th Indian to receive the Award, which carries with it a cash prize of $ 50,000. She was very much proud on receiving the award.

Now, the question arises in whose name this award has been introduced, who was he and who are considered most suitable for the Award.

Ramon del Fierro Magsaysay (August 31, 1907 - March 17, 1957) was the third President of the Third Republic of the Phillipines from December 30, 1953 until his death in a plane crash on 17th March, 1957.

On April 23, 1946, Magsaysay was elected as an Independent to the Phillippine House of Representatives. In 1949 he was re-elected to a second term in the House of Representatives. During both terms he was Chairman of the House National Defense Committee.

In early August 1950 he offered President Quirino a plan to fight the Communist guerillas, using his own experiences in guerrilla warfare during World War II. He was an advocate of cruel government action against the Communist-led Hukbalahap (Huk) guerrillas. After some hesitation, Quirino appointed Magsaysay Secretary of National Defence on August 31, 1950. He intensified the campaign against the Communist guerrillas. Thousands of Communists were not only butchered brutally by Magsaysay but also their entire justified struggle was crushed ruthlessly by him. This success was due in part to the unconventional methods he employed and developed alongside an American adviser, General Edward Lansdale. The United States of America had assisted him financially for the purpose.

In June 1952 Magsaysay made a goodwill tour to the United States and Mexico.

He was convinced that the only way to continue his fight against Communism was to be elected President ousting the existing administration that, in his opinion, had caused the rise of the Communist guerrillas. He resigned his post as Defense Secretary on February 28, 1953, and became the Presidential Candidate of the Nacionalista Party , disputing the nomination with senator Camilo Osias at the Nacionalista national convention. In the Election of 1953, Magsaysay was decisively elected president over the incumbent Elpidio Quirino.

As President, he was a close friend and supporter of the United States and a vocal spokesman against Communism during the Cold War. He laid the foundation of the South East Asdia Treaty Organisation also known as the Manila Pact of 1954, that aimed to defeat Communist-Marxist movements in South East Asia, South Asia and the Southwestern Pacific.

On March 17, 1957 President Ramon del Fierro Magsaysay, a butcher responsible for the slaughtering of thousands of Communists in Phillipines, died in a plane crash while flying back to Manila from Cebu.

The award under the name and style “Magsaysay Award” has been introduced after his name to felicitate and acknowledge only blind anti-Communist intellectuals working in Asia in order to encourage and promote them in their activities. So, as a part of this anti-Communist objective and campaign, Mahasweta Devi has been awarded Magsaysay Award for her role of blind hostility towards Communism in India but not for tribal welfare activities as is being propagated by her sychophants. If she were a genuine Leftist or if she had possessed minimum conscience, she would not have cerrtainly accepted the award introduced in the name of a butcher of Communists.
