Naxalite faction vows to avenge Nandigram killings
SILIGURI: A faction of CPI (ML), led by Mahadev Mukherjee, on Saturday took a vow to avenge the death of 14 people in police firing in Nandigram on March 14.
Mukherjee, who is a staunch follower of party ideologue the late Charu Mazumdar, at a convention of the party here urged partymen to volunteer to avenge the Nandigram killings.
He said that major ruling Left Front partner CPI (M) and West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadev Bhattacharjee were ‘reactionary forces’ who were interested in remaining in power by any means.
Mukherjee also criticised Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee for allegedly trying to derive political mileage from the ‘mass killings’ of Nandigram peasants.
