State terror at Nandigram!

It is mourning time now. Please wear black badge for the next 1 week, and hand out same to others.

Join rally on 14 November, 2007 from College Square, Kolkata at 1 PM. Please protest.

Do not fear to openly criticize the inhuman atocities being meted out in Nandigram for the last 10 months. Condemn the role of the state in allowing the mass killing & rape of unarmed villagers in Nandigram.

Condemn the role of the State in brutally beating up & arresting Poets, Singers, Actors and Artists who were unarmed & voicing their protest through songs in Kolkata on 11 November, 2007.

It is remarkable that there was NO ADMINISTRATION & THE POLICE WERE ABSENT OR MUTE SPECTATORS on 9 & 10 November when the CPI(M) cadres carried out mass killing in a preplanned, calculated move to take ‘occupation’ of Nandigram.

It is remarkable that on 11 November in Kolkata, POLICE & ADMINISTRATION WERE OVERACTIVE IN BEATING AND ARRESTING UNARMED PROTESTORS- 100 of them who did not even step inside ‘NANDAN’, and were singing to voice their disgust. THEY WERE EMINENT CREATIVE PERSONALITIES- like Aparna Sen, Gautam Ghosh, Shankha Ghosh, Shaoli Mitra, Rituparno Ghosh, Subhaprasanna, Joy Goswami, Anjan Dutta, Parambrata, Suman Mukhopadhyay, Pallab Kirtaniya and many others. Many of the stalwarts were manhandled by police. IF THIS IS THE SITUATION IN KOLKATA, ONE CAN UNDERSTAND THE LEVEL OF CRUELTY GOING ON IN NANDIGRAM.

In the recent past, Government of West Bengal has proved to be more prone to fascism putting even Gujrat to shame. EVEN REPORTERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER NANDIGRAM. This kind of arbitrary misrule is unheard of anywhere else in India.

Friends, this is a time to protest unitedly. Show your sympathy towards the hapless fellow human beings in Nandigram. SACRIFICE SOME TIME-- TAKE SOME PAIN NOW FOR A BETTER TOMORROW-- MAKE THE STRIKE A SUCCESS.

Be at College Square, Kolkata at 1 PM… on 14 November, 2007.

Do not fear or hesitate to fight for human dignity.

    5 yrs after her son died in the march 14, 2007 Nandigram incident, Firoza Biwi, Nandigram MLA asked industry minister the question on industrialization in Nandigram. It was Nandigram and Singur that put TMC to power. TMC had converted Nandigram into a samshan. The people are not against industry. But it is too late. In Nandigram, one police officer sadhucharan Chattopadhyaya was killed in the month of February 2007. In the month of March, 14 farmers died in police firing. So policeman was eliminated first, road was dug, panchayet leader sankar Samanta was eliminated, Maoists were very much present in Nandigram with weapons and providing training. Police firing was unfortunate, but it has occurred as an effect of many other unfortunate incidents occurred beforehand. Already sill commission told that dinhata police firing is ok. So, what is wrong with Nandigram firing? Can the present govt or any govt arrange rasagullas for road-diggers?

    Here is the Success Story of Panchayat Raj during LF days in Nandigram under the leadership of sankar Samanta. INDIA CAN FIND INSPIRATION FROM THIS local SUCEES Story. Successful models when replicated can accelerate improved sanitation across the whole area. The first block in the country to achieve 100 per cent sanitation was Nandigram-II in Bengal. By 2003, all the households in the block had been furnished with toilets, which improved both the community surroundings and health. Ram Krishna Mission, with LF government and UNICEF support, set up a local production and supply Infrastructure. This arrangement not only supplies inexpensive sanitary materials, it also props up local livelihoods. After following this example statewide, sanitation coverage in Bengal has increased to over eighty per cent.

    Nandigram Police firing: पूर्व मुख्यमंत्री बुद्धदेव को क्लीनचिट

    कोलकाता/ब्यूरो। नंदीग्राम में पुलिस फायरिंग की घटना में सीबीआई ने पश्चिम बंगाल के पूर्व मुख्यमंत्री और माकपा के वरिष्ठ नेता बुद्धदेव भट्टाचार्य को क्लीनचिट दे दी है। वर्ष 2007 में 14 मार्च की घटना में हाईकोर्ट ने 17 मार्च को सीबीआई जांच कराने का निर्देश दिया था। तब पुलिस की गोली से 14 जनों की मौत हो गई थी।
    मौजूदा ममता बनर्जी सरकार ने सीबीआई से प्रकरण में भट्टाचार्य की भूमिका की जांच की मांग की थी। सीबीआई ने राज्य सरकार को बताया कि घटना में भट्टाचार्य का हाथ होने का कोई साक्ष्य नहीं मिला है। सीबीआई ने रिपोर्ट राज्य सरकार को भेज दी है। सीबीआई ने बंगाल सरकार से घटना के दौरान तैनात 12 पुलिस व प्रशासनिक अधिकारियों के खिलाफ कार्रवाई की सिफारिश की थी।
    इनमें से तीन के खिलाफ सीबीआई ने राज्य सरकार से अकारण गोली चलाने के लिए चार्ज लगाने की अनुमति मांगी थी। अन्य नौ के खिलाफ कड़ी कार्रवाई की सिफारिश की गई थी। सीबीआई के संयुक्त निदेशक अरुण बोथरा द्वारा भेजी गई रिपोर्ट की राज्य का गृह विभाग जांच कर रहा है।
    माना जा रहा है कि राज्य सरकार यह रिपोर्ट कानूनी सलाह के लिए विधि विभाग को भेजेगी। सरकार फिलहाल किसी पुलिस अधिकारी के खिलाफ चार्जशीट पेश करने की इजाजत देने में जल्दबाजी के मूड में नहीं है।
