“Hypocrites” CPI(M) leaders visit nandigram “Hypocrites”

A seven-member CPI(M) parliamentary delegation today visited the affected villages of Nandigram and heard the complaints of people against the CRPF posted there to maintain law and order.

The team led by CPI(M) leader in the Lok Sabha Basudev Acharya, visited Sonachura, Kunjapur, Sherkhanchawk and Satengabari this morning.

Residents complained that the central forces posted there conducted searches in their homes at night, CPI(M) sources said.

Sources said CPI(M) supporters mostly evicted from these villages during the height of the anti-land grab movement, met the team members and submitted their grievances.

At Sonachura, nearly 100 party supporters expressed strong reservation against the presence of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel in the villages.

CPI(M) Gram Pradhan of Sonachura Gram Panchayat Lakshman Mondal alleged that he could not enter his village in fear of the CRPF jawans. The paramilitary forces reportedly wanted to question him for his alleged involvement in the violence in the area.

At the CPI(M) party office at Kunjapur in Khejuri, supporters said CRPF personnel searched a nearby brick kiln to look for buried bodies and arms.

MP Tarit Topdar assured them that the state government would take up the issue of alleged CRPF atrocities with the Centre. ”You should go to the police station and file complaint,” he advised the villagers.

The MPs later met freedom fighter Braja Mohan Das at Sherkhanchawk whose house CRPF personnel allegedly searched for CPI(M) activists holed up there.
