Left Front Chairman Biman Bose was at Durgapur yesterday (February 01) to attend a public meeting at Pandit Raghunath Murmu ground In Palashdiha. The CPM’s Durgapur rally was a part of the Left Front’s preparation for the upcoming rally at Brigade Parade Ground, Kolkata on 9th February.
Speaking at the Durgapur rally, the CPM Bengal chief Biman Bose said, “The Trinamool Congress is desperately trying to protect the skin of its own people those were in league with the ‘so called’ Maoists in Nandigram by declaring withdrawal of cases against the organised mass that unleashed terror there.”
Mr. Bose further said: “The CBI has filed charge-sheet against the offenders those were responsible behind killing of 34 Marxist supporters and cadres between 2007 & 2009. Five of our cadres are still remaining untraced. We are surprised that the present government is bidding to withdraw the case.”
Left Front has given a call for mobilization of one million people at Brigade Parade Ground on February 9. Preparation for the Brigade rally is in full swing across the state and Left leaders are leaving no stone unturned to make this a historic one.
The rally is widely seen as Left’s launch pad for the upcoming Lok Sabha Poll this year.
There have been reports of CPM flags and banners being torn by Trinamool supporters at Durgapur’s Muchipara. The banners and flag were tied as a part of yesterday’s rally of Biman Bose.
Durgapur CPM leader Pankaj Roy Sarkar lodged a complaint with the police. The police acted upon the complaint and ensured that the flags and banners could be tied again before CPM’s Durgapur rally of Bose begins.
