This piece of article cracked me up….

Funny side up

No one can accuse the Naxalites of lacking a sense of humour. This was evident from the rent contract some of them had signed in Bhopal with house-owners while they discreetly worked in an arms factory. One named Shivraj Patil, the Union home minister, as his father. When their cover was busted, the Maoist was asked why he had named Patil as his father. He referred to Patil’s recent statement in which he is supposed to have referred to Naxals as his “misguided sons”.

Shocking but true quotes from the establishment

January 12, 2007

“Yes. I want to become a Maoist if this is the model of development. But I can’t at this age.“-V.P Singh (Former Prime Minister of India)

“I have no hesitation in saying that many of them are highly motivated.They are convinced that they are fighting for a cause. They are far better than the criminals who have managed to infiltrate assemblies and Parliament and even become ministers. “-Prakash Singh (Former Director-General of BSF.)

“The Maoist movement is a symbol of the divide between rural and urban India. The movement cannot be solved by police action at all. There could be a time when they (Maoists) could overrun urban citadels,” – M K Dhar (Former Joint Director of Intelligence Bureau) predicting that Maoists are soon going to capture entire cities.

“Hang corrupt people in public” – Supreme Court gives thumbs up to Jan Adalats (Maoist Judicial System)

“Dalits must be armed” – R R Patil (Hypocrite Home minister of Maharashtra) admits arming the oppressed masses is the only way forward.

“Every five years, it is the masses who determine who will form the government. And in between those five years the classes determine what that government will do. “- Mani Shankar Iyer (Minister for Panchayati Raj ) exposing the UPA government.

This statement of Mani Shankar is nothing new… the maoists have been shouting themselves hoarse for the last 40 years that this independence is a sham.

CPM cadres raid Nandigram, butcher farmers resisting landgrab

January 8, 2007

NandigramA farmer from Nandigram keeps a look out for CPM lumpens and goons. Picture by Sanjoy Chattopadhyaya.

Here is a full report on what exactly happened
CPM cadres raid Nandigram
8 dead; TMC, Cong call for bandh today

Subhrangshu Gupta
Tribune News Service

Kolkata, January 7
A group of CPM cadres, armed with automatic rifles and other weapons and wearing police uniforms, raided Nandigram village last night and gunned down at least six farmers in accordance to the party’s suddenly adopted policy of applying force against the Krishi Bachaoo Committee, opposing the land transfer to Indonesia’s Salim group.

In the clashes that followed between the two groups, two CPM workers were also killed. Over 12 were severely injured either by gunshots or blasts and they had been admitted to different hospitals in Midnapore town and Kharagpur, where the condition of seven was stated to be critical.

The villagers killed included Biswajit Maiti, Bhudeb Mondal, Sk. Salim, Bharat Mondal, Sankar Samanta and Bishnu Maiti.

According to official reports, the CPM workers encircled Nandigram village around midnight and attacked the farmers assembled in the Garchakraberia, Sonachura and Tekhali bazaar areas. The attacks were retaliated and soon followed an armed clash between the two groups.

Oddly enough, there was no police force posted around the place at the time of the incident as it had been withdrawn earlier following the decision of the all-party meeting in the morning.

The Trinamool Congress (TMC), Congress, SUCI and several other parties have givev a call for Bangla bandh tomorrow demanding the resignation of Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and the imposition of President’s rule in the state.

Meanwhile, Mr Bhattacharjee, who was busy today negotiating with a Dubai-based industrialist, Sheikh Suleman, for an investment proposal at Kulpi in the Sunderbans where some 640 acres would be needed for the project,
regretted the incident at Nandigram but reiterated that the industrial expansion programme would continue.

The incident was an outcome of a provocation call to the party cadres by Mr Benoy Konar, senior central committee member, who is also a prominent leader of the party’s Kishan Front, for confronting the unwilling farmers and their supporters with force for ensuring an easy transferring of 10,000 acres there to Salim industries.

He said their policy would now be “gun for gun and lathis for lathis”, alleging that some Naxalites and the branded criminals had been behind the farmers’ agitations who needed to be firmly tackled. Mr Konar had asked the Left front partners like the CPI, RSP and the Forward Bloc either to support the government or quit.

Leaders of the three major front partners, namely the CPI, RSP and the FB demanded that the government should immediately stop “land grabbing policy” and hold all-party talks and adopt a decision on the future land acquiring for industries.

Ms Mamata Banerjee, who has been recuperating at a nursing home, and Mr Pradip Bhattacharyya, working WBPCC president, squarely blamed the chief minister for acting as an agent of the capitalists and held him responsible for the innocent killing in the Nandigram village.

Village cries revenge – More blood likely to flow in Nandigram

January 8, 2007

Capitalists will never understand what land is to a poor farmer.

He usually considers it to be his mother and treats it with the same
reverence and respect.
So selling land for a farmer is like selling his mother.. which no
self respecting farmer will do…

But will the land sharks who in collaboration with the Mafia Raj
and in the name of SEZ’s and development grabbed lakhs of acres
of Land all over the country understand this ?

Never !

For them land is a commodity that has to be bought low and sold high for
a profit and anyone who refuses to give his land deserves to be
slaughtered.

India is being sold one piece at a time to foreign corporations.
Our Sovereignty will soon be next big joke in the country, second
only to our political system.

Village cries revenge – More blood likely to flow in Nandigram

Village cries revenge
SIMI KAMBOJ

Nandigram, Jan. 7: Sonachura village wears the look of a battlefield where guns had fallen silent.

But the look is deceptive. An undercurrent of anger runs through the villages, many of whose residents had voted for the CPM for years.

“This is the first time blood has been spilled in this agitation. The deaths will only stoke the fire. Ashuk Lakshman Seth ba Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, punte rekhe debo (Let Lakshman Seth or Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee come here, we’ll bury them alive),” says a raging Sheikh Jahangir, whose 11-member family depends on his 13-bigha plot.

His neighbour Moin-ul Haque nods in agreement.

“If they think they can shoot us, we will retaliate with whatever we can lay our hands on. So what if we’ve voted for the CPM all these years? We don’t care for the party any more,” says Moin-ul.

Thousands from neighbouring Gangra, Kendiamari, Jadubarichak and South Khali villages gathered at Sonachura this afternoon in a silent show of solidarity.

Death greets a visitor to the village. In the bazaar, a dog gnaws at a charred body. From the nonchalance of the onlookers, it is plain that it is that of a local CPM loyalist.

A kilometre away, the house of CPM leader Debanshu Sashmal has been torched. The battle had definitely not been one-sided.

A crowd stands on the Talpatti bridge as some people reach out to a body floating in the canal.

Watching a procession with the body pass, Panchanan Bera, a small farmer, says: “Blood has started flowing… this agitation will go far. This government doesn’t understand what land means to us.”

CPM butchers farmers in Nandigram to appease Salim Group of Industries

CPM butchers farmers in Nandigram to appease Salim Group of Industries

Comrades please understand that this butchering of farmers in
Nandigram is no ad-hoc arrangement. If one goes through the
history of the Salim Group one will realize that they have built
their empire on the blood and bones of our Indonesian Comrades.

This butchering of farmers is merely a welcome ritual to appease
and announce the arrival of the Anti-Communist Mass Murdering Salim
Group of Industries to India.

In Calcutta it is common to find CPM leaders
and cadre in Kali Temples sacrificing goats and chickens to
appease their out of this world masters.This butchering of
farmers must be seen and understood in that context.

A goat being sacrificed to Goddess Kali in West Bengal

I am sure the Salim Group bosses are pleased by this sacrifice
of farmers.

Here is a news article I dug up.

West Bengal degenerates sign deal with firm whose account
books are still dripping with the blood of millions of
commmunists slaughtered in Indonesia.


By Ajay Prakash
25 August 2006

Last month, West Bengal’s Left Front government signed India’s biggest foreign direct investment (FDI) deal with the Salim Goup, an Indonesian conglomerate closely linked to the former Indonesian dictator General Suharto.

The founder of the Salim Group is Liem Sioe Liong. Reportedly the richest man in Indonesia, Liem owes much of his fortune to privileges granted him by Suharto, whom he befriended in the 1940s.

Suharto was responsible for the bloody purge of Indonesian Communist Party members and sympathisers between 1965 and 1966 that resulted in more than a million deaths. But this has not stopped Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI [M]) West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadev Bhattacharjee promoting the deal and brushing aside criticisms:

“Why should we rake up the past? They [the Salim Group] have invested in China, too. Our stand is clear. For the development of the state we need capital. We are not concerned about the character of the investor. To me capital has no colour.”

SEZs are set up by state governments, usually in collaboration with the private sector, as self-contained areas with their own water- and power-supply systems. Their great value to the bourgeoisie is that taxes, and labour standards and other regulations are waived.

According to India together, “To woo investors to the zones, the central government has been offering a number of fiscal incentives and concessions. For instance, the zones are deemed as foreign territories as far as trade operations, duties and tariffs are concerned. The units (100 percent export oriented) also have full flexibility in operations. They are exempt from all direct and indirect taxes. No export and import duties, no excise duty, no central or state sales tax and no service tax. The units do not require license for importing capital goods and raw material. 100 percent FDI is allowed in the zones. Repatriation of export profits is also allowed.”

The SEZs also offer investors cheap labour without any legal restrictions or interference from government bodies. Whether workers are blue collar or professional, they face similar working conditions, labouring for 10-12 hours a day for low wages, usually without paid overtime, holiday pay or retirement benefits. These are the sort of conditions that the CPI (M) is introducing into West Bengal as it woos foreign capital and Indian big business.

Comrade these degenerates preach that capital has no colour
the day is not far when even Dow Chemicals present owner of Union Carbide
will be invited by Buddhadeb Bhattacharya to setup a factory in West Bengal.

CPM unleashes TERROR in Nandigram – Four people have been killed and six injured

4 Villagers protesting land acquisition shot dead in West Bengal

Kolkata TV, a Bengali news channel, showed footage of a bullet-riddled Bharat Mandal, a member of the newly formed Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee (Committee to Resist Eviction from Land), lying dead.Along with him 3 other villagers were also killed.

Bharat was taken to a health centre in a rickshaw van but died on early Sunday.

“The CPI-M men raided us in police fatigues and killed him,” a villager alleged.

“Bharat has two daughters and a son. I don’t know what would happen to his family,” the brother of Bharat Mandal said.

Local journalists claimed the attack was organised by the CPI-M men who started throwing bombs from across the river at Khejuri towards Nandigram.

Opposition parties have called for a 24-hour shutdown on Tuesday.

The Rapid Action Force (RAF) was deployed in Nandigram after the violence even as Left Front leaders demanded an immediate meeting of the Front to discuss the situation.

At least 22 mass organisations on Saturday formed a body to prevent any attempt by the West Bengal government to acquire land for a chemical hub and a special economic zone (SEZ) in Nandigram that saw violent protests against the proposal this week.

The Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee (Committee to Resist Eviction from Land) was formed to prevent any move to acquire land for a proposed project by the Salim group of Indonesia and the state government even as CPI-M activists flexed their muscles and drew a battle line with the angry farmers and residents.

“We will not give any land for industrialisation here at any cost or price. We will teach the government a lesson if they use force,” said a representative of the new body.

Six killed in Nandigram violence

Sunday, January 7, 2007 (Nandigram):

Overnight clashes at Nandigram between CPM supporters and villagers backed by the Trinamool and other parties have left six people dead and several others seriously injured.

Raman Singh get’s big cake of cow dung on his face , surrender drama turns out to be flop show

Raman Singh get’s big cake of cow dung on his face , surrender drama turns out to be flop show

Honourable Chief Minister of Chhattishgarh Raman Singh, director of
The Great Maoist Surrender show which turned out to be a big flop.

The government of Chhattisgarh along with it’s pet
programme Salwa-Judum has lost all credibility.

Some people believe that this programme was initially
planned to raise the sagging morale of the Salwa-Judum
goons and state terror police but has now backfired
leading to further demoralisation among the supporters
of Salwa-Judum.

Fake Maoists at surrender show

Raipur: Chhattisgarh’s BJP government has come under fire for getting scores of tribal civilians to surrender as Maoists.

The Congress on Friday said that 79 rebels including seven women, who surrendered before Chief Minister Raman Singh and Home Minister Ramvichar Netam in Wednesday, were innocent tribal civilians who had been persuaded by the government to surrender as Maoists.

The claims of the Congress were boosted with police refusing to provide crime details of a majority of the surrendered Maoists.

“A few have a criminal background. All the surrendered Maoists were Dalam member’s a local affiliate of the banned outfit Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) but we do not have their criminal records,” a police official told IANS.

Raman Singh described the surrender function as a historic day and provided Rs 1,000 to all the rebels, who took oath of joining the mainstream.

Congress veteran and former chief minister Ajit Jogi questioned the surrender exercise and criticised the Raman government for “staging a ceremony of fake Maoists”.

Jogi said the government had forcibly brought “innocent tribals to Raipur from trouble-hit Bastar areas” to claim that they had been achieving success against the leftist militants.

He said that the BJP government should resign on moral grounds for staging a “ceremony of tribal civilians who were branded Maoists for political gains”.

Chhattisgarh is the worst of 13 Maoist affected states. About 50,000 tribals of 600 forested villages are being held in to government-run concentration camps in Bastar since June 2005 when Salwa Judum ( a state sponsered terror campaign) against the rebels was initiated.
