    Above persons are actually responsible for massacre in lalgarh.If we call them communist then who are criminal. Is the demand (immediate arrest of these criminal) illegal, if not then supports SRAI.

    This deliberate attack by CPIM goons stems from an arrogance of invincibility & stockpiles of explosives, harmads they have gathered. However these things count only if population is fearfull. CPIM has enjoyed too much hospitality of the docile people. It is time to give them a reply in a language they understand i.e. “Total Revolution”!

    I think through this massacre CPM has again proved in which condition they are finally..The leaders as well as criminals must not be freed, must be arrested immediately..

  16. Dr Neha 9 January 2011 at 6:36 PM #

    I strictly condemn such a henious act and demand immediate arrest of the culprits!! I think police and ng their OWN brain and arrrest the killers rather than saviours like Dr Vinayak Sen!!!
    Shame on such a government! Shame on such a judiciary!!

  17. sumitra 9 January 2011 at 7:03 PM #

    I agree with the stand of srai– ministers of the ruling party by not taking immediate steps nor even by strongly reacting have become party to the misdeed. The Governor has rightly said — ‘it was a day of sorrow and shame … no state should tolerate such mindless discord….’ So lawful punishment to the perpetrators of the planned crime is the only answer. We are waiting Mr. Manmohan Singh

  18. debashis 10 January 2011 at 12:02 AM #

    i strongly demand the same.
    we are against terrorism… irrespective of the face.. let it be bin laden , bush, narendra modi or buddha- biman.

    After this massacre, can any one show me one good reason why such “political” hoodlums like CPI (M)should not be banned?

    great person like binayak sen is now present in jail but who will give punishment to such type of criminal politician?

    Netai is within Lalgarh area. During the violent days, Maoists were going for the kill in Bengal. In 2009, they launched an audacious raid on Jhargram town and killed three CPM men. Bengal govt looked to Centre for help, only to be told by Union home minister P Chidambaram that it should use its own police rather than depend on paramilitary forces to tackle the ‘law and-order problem’. The then CM Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee ordered a crackdown after a cabinet meet, but left it to police to decide the date. The then, Home secretary Ardhendu Sen said the state police would lead the assault, with central forces providing a ‘crucial back-up’. But is the union govt in a mood to co-operate? A pitched battle was on the cards in Maoist terrain. The guerrillas shrugged off the crackdown threat. “We’ll use women in the forefront. Can government stomach it if even 3-4 women get killed in the crossfire?” asked a Maoist leader. With CPM cadres fleeing and police pulling out, the government will indeed find it tough to lead the counter-attack. Netai incident is unfortunate. But is it an isolated incident? Is it not a part of civil war?? The civil war was declared by Maoists; patronized by Trinamool; participated by cpim. Today , participants of civil war have accepted the fault; declarers and patrons are in no mood to admit anything except showing one holier than thou face.

    If dinhata police firing is ok, as per sil commission report, what is wrong with 1993 writers’ building firing? Here is the story how was provocation in 21 July, 1993; day of Y-Cong Abhijan. Demand was: voters’ ID card is to be made only document for voting. YC supporters gathered at 5 different points of Kolkata. They marched along Brabourne Road. Police stopped them near Tea Board office —near Writers’. As crowd tried to break police cordon, a lathicharge ensued. Stones were thrown, tear gas shells burst. Crowd retreated, but not dispersed; took shelter in lanes between Tea Board and Canning Street. Lathi-wielding police entered lanes to chase them away. Suddenly a policeman emerged from one of the lanes, bleeding from head. He had been hit by a stone in head. Seeing him in that condition, the cops went berserk. By that time, YC president Mamata and others reached Tea Board crossing. She had climbed onto a traffic post in road. Police surrounded the traffic post and started a lathicharge. YC leaders threw a protective ring around Mamata. Some of them — including Saugata Roy — were badly beaten up. It was planned that supporters would move towards Writers’ from different directions and laid a siege on the state secretariat. Mamata had, in the meantime, demonstrated her crowd-pulling ability by holding a successful rally at Brigade. But the-then CM JB announced that he would not allow the state secretariat to be taken over by YC. As planned by YC, rallies were heading towards Writers’ from different directions — from Brabourne Road, BB Gangly Street, Mission Row. One procession was approaching from Mayo Road, where gatherings are prohibited under Section 144. It was stopped by police at crossing of Mayo Road and Red Road. A scuffle ensued. Few people started throwing stones. Police resorted to lathicharge. Crowd started running across Curzon Park and battle spread. Afraid that they would be outnumbered, policemen opened fire. 13 people were shot dead. Mamata herself was beaten up. She collapsed on road. Whether it was real collapse or drama, who knows? More than 200 youths injured. So, this drama was a movement to demand PIC in election. This was an election commission issue and not state-govt matter at all. At present whole country got PIC system in election. Credit goes to EC. Why it was required to make a movement against state govt at all? Bogus leaders’ bogus movement; bogus martyrs;

    In the investigation of the Nandigram police firing, CBI found involvement of TMC. No evidence has been found that CPI (M) had infiltrated police & fired at innocents. Neither have they found any evidence of trawler filled dead bodies smuggled out of Nandigram. CBI failed to find any remains of slaughtered children. The story that emerges out of the two charge-sheets filed by the CBI in the Haldia Court on the events of 18th March, 2007 is completely different from what the Congress, Trinamul party, a section of the intellectuals & the press had campaigned. It was this vicious campaign that galvanized the public opinion against the 34 year LF govt. There were two incidents of shooting that day, Bhangabera Bridge & Gokulnagar. CBI has submitted two separate charge-sheets. What emerges is that there were armed miscreants hiding behind the assembled people, mainly women & children. They had fired on the police. The incident at the Bhangabera Bridge has 129 accused, four of them deceased. The first name on the list is one Ashok Mondol, a resident of Sonachura & Trinamul worker. His elder brother, Ajay Mondol was a Trinamul candidate in the Panchayat elections & has become a Panchayat Samiti member. There is Subodh Patra, TMC candidate for the 2003 Panchayat polls from Sonachura. Accused no. 116 is Sonachura resident Rabin Mondol, a local TMC leader. He had played a big role in the year long terror & anarchy in that region. The key protagonist of this campaign, Krishnapada Mondol, is a TMC worker & relative of TMC leader, Nishikanta Mondol. Other accused, Rashbehari Khara, Prasenjit Karon, Gobinda Paik, Shankar Dalapati, Raghunath Dolui, Satyaranjan Manna, Lakhikanta Gayen, Robi Das are all known Trinamul workers & leaders. The list in the other charge-sheet on the Gokulnagar shooting too has TMC workers & leaders, a total of 37. Salil Das Adhikari & Sushil Das Adhikari are known TMC workers & related to TMC Panchayat Samiti member, Swadesh Das Adhikari. The other accused, Moni Rana, Prankrishna Das, Joydev Mondol, Srimanta Mondol are known local workers of the TMC. It is now clear that statements made by Left Front were correct. CBI came to two conclusions fairly early in its investigation, 1) State government had not sent the police to Nandigram secretly. There were numerous forewarnings after that area was cut off & the administration stopped from entering the area. It was clearly declared that the police will go in to restore the rule of law in the area & to carry out repairs to the roads infrastructure destroyed in the area; 2) there was an illegal assembly by the BUCP to stop the police from carrying out its job. Is it sheer coincidence that TMC Govt did not provide the permission to the CBI for interrogating the top police officials?

    Who fabricated rape story of Nandigram? WHAT HAPPENED TO RAPE CASE OF NANDIGRAM? On Jan 14, 2014, Nandigram got a 130-foot-tall column, or Minar. Built on the initiative of Trinamool MP, it is a memorial to the 14 villagers killed in police firing as well as to women raped during that movement. And one rape victim inaugurated it. Tears welled up in the eyes of the 52-year-old woman, who had allegedly been gangraped twice. On March 14, 2007, she was attacked twice by CPM goons. Her house was burnt. BUT SHE HAS NOT GOT JUSTICE EVEN AFTER Trinamool got POWER. This rape victim symbolized the fight against land grabbing as per Suvendu Adhikari, MP. He told this to Media. It is only second to Kolkata Shahid Minar (168 ft). Nandigram Minar is built at Rs 2.25 crore. Adhikari says what inspired him is the Minar at Jalianwala Bagh and the Bhasha Shaeed Minar in Dhaka. He contributed Rs 30 lakh from MP allowances. TOWER MAKING IS FINE. BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE RAPE CASE? CAN RAPE VICTIM BECOME A VIP? IS RAPIST A VIP? TMC IS IN POWER. Who is preventing to investigate and punish the rapists? IS THIS ANOTHER CHAMPALA SARDAR CASE? No RAPE CASE by police? Only celebration ? RAPE IS NOT FOR CELEBRATION. Where is the CASE?

    Charge sheet by CBI against police firing at Nandigram clearly states that there was NO SECRET OPERATION framed at Nandigram. Police was compelled to shoot after receiving continuous one sided attack. The operation was executed after repeated declaration. On 14th March 2007, Police reached Nandigram to repair road that was distorted by Land Eviction Committee on the month of January. The police was supposed to enter the place through broken fences. A huge crowd of 5000 people accumulated at other side of the bridge. Right after this, police was attacked after which they were compelled to counter attack. At first police was provided with sticks and shield bearer for defense followed by 47 rounds of tear gas. But after following all procedures as per regulations, police was at last compelled to shoot blank around ten times. Everything was done after numerous announcements by police. Yet, with the situation getting out of control the police was instruct for target firing. Initially it was said that the incident took lives of innocent people but the charge sheet reports say that police was compelled to counter attack after repeated pounces.
