Arjun Singh advocates talks with Naxalites

Posted by Indian Vanguard on April 18, 2007

RANCHI: Advocating dialogue with Naxalites, Union HRD minister Arjun Singh on Tuesday said such discussions will help bring about solution to problems. 

"One should try to make them (Naxalites) understand through talks that violence brings nothing," Singh said.

"Its not force, but discussions which will bring about solution to problems," Singh said after launching the second phase of 'School Challe Hum' programme.

The union minister made the comments after being informed that the state intended to accelerate educational programmes in different parts of Jharkhand despite 18 districts of the state being Naxalite-infested.

State HRD minister Bandhu Tirkey also pointed out that it was a challenge for his government to take up educational schemes in the rural areas in the face of extremism.

"We will reach our goals, and strive to raise the literacy graph of Jharkhand," Deputy Chief Minister Sudhir Mahto said.

After a series of lies on Santoshpur killing by armed forces in Bijapur district of bastar on the night of 31st march where now reports are saying more than 12 innocent tribals were killed by a group of 500 armed forces and SPOs and their house burnt so that villagers of Santoshpur can be forced to leave their villages and live in Salwa Judum camps above is some reality written by “Dainik Bhaskar” saying that Maoist are more Hi-Tech than Intelligence Agencies when it comes to using IT…

During his visit to villege santhoshpur, eminent journalist subranshu chaudhary found out that it was not 7 people but nearly 12 tribals killed by armed forces and SPOs as apart of KPS Gills strategy to force the villagers leave home and live in “Salwa judam” camps on the night of 31st March 2007…

I am sure there are good people also in the Armed forces,then why this genocide?Aren’t they scared that somebody is keeping a track of their inhuman acts?Why are they also becoming a player in the exploitation of Bastar?

Recently a CRPF truck was caught by the forest officials in Narainpur district loaded with Teak Wood to be smuggled to different places by armed forces?Is this a part of their training or the resources of bastar to tempting for them to break all the rules whether its Human Rights or Environmental??

Centre sounds Maoist alert in Nandigram

KOLKATA, April 17: The seizure of a large consignment of explosives bound for West Bengal in Jharkhand four days ago coupled with recent Intelligence reports suggest that Maoists are relocating a portion of their cadre to the state in the wake of the Nandigram issue, the Union home ministry has said.

In a warning to the state government, the ministry has disclosed intelligence reports of Maoists importing men to West Bengal from among its cadre base active in the neighbouring states of Bihar and Jharkhand for the last two months. The group is using the Katihar (Bihar)-Sahibganj (Jharkhand) corridor to sneak militants into the state.
Local intelligence inputs from these states suggested that a few hundred extremists might have managed to reach West Bengal already. The CPI-M, incidentally, had been alleging that the violence in Nandigram was “aided and abetted by the Maoists.”

In the so-called red corridor spread across Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Jharkhand, Bihar and West Bengal, the state remains the weakest link. “Maoists become active in three stages. First, they identify an issue and then they create a tempo against the local government and finally usher in a parallel administration. Nandigram SEZ would, no doubt, tempt Maoists,” a senior state home department official said.

Intelligence inputs were further corroborated on 14 April when Dumka police in neighbouring Jharkhand nabbed a suspected Maoist and recovered 3,000 detonators and 400 bags of explosives from his possession. Police raided a Rampurhat-bound private bus near Pusaro Bridge and arrested a teenager, Swapan Ravi Das, of Rajgram village in Suri subdivision of Birbhum district of West Bengal.

On the basis of information provided by Swapan, Dumka police rushed to Rampurhat to arrest those to whom the explosives were to be allegedly supplied. The boy had told the police that two persons would be there to receive these explosives near Rampurhat bus stand, but when police along with their West Bengal counterparts reached there, they found no one.

Police raided several places in Shikaripara block in this connection and detained four persons including Muhammad Riyauddin, Harun Sheikh, Idul Sheikh and Muhammad Jalal, all hailing from West Bengal. They have been interrogated on the destination and intended use of the explosives.

The explosives recovered had the seal of Gomia based Indian Explosive Ltd, a Central government unit in Jharkhand. Swapan admitted that it was his second such trip within a week. One Musharraf Sheikh had engaged him to procure these explosives from Durgapur village in Kundo police station of Deoghar district.
“Police in the districts bordering Bihar and Jharkhand have been asked to step up vigil following the Intelligence report,” the official added.

Bengal Govt’s new gameplan

KOLKATA, April 17: Forgo violence and put up an economic blockade seems to be the new tactic of the CPI-M to teach Nandigram farmers a lesson. Faced with much criticism from all quarters of the society including the intellectual classes over the Nandigram massacre, the party has put up many makeshift camps in and around Nandigram allegedly to “restrict farmers” from accessing Haldia, Contai, Tamluk and other business hubs to sell their produce.

Supporters of Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee supporters alleged that CPI-M cadres have put up many camps in roads connecting Nandigram with Haldia and other business towns to restrict them from accessing suburban markets. “Most people of trouble-torn villages in Nandigram collect livelihood by selling pulses, betel leaf and fish. Those who have participated in the anti land-grab movement are now facing an economic terror as CPI-M has started building up forces in several places to prevent farmers from accessing market,” BUPC leader Mr Subhendu Adhikari said.

According to him, CPI-M cadres have put up camps at Battala, Bidyapith, Sherkhanchowk and Haldia ferryghat to deny farmers access to Haldia and other business hub markets. With the ferry services ~ the most convenient and economical mode of transport between Nandigram and Haldia ~ remaining suspended for many days, farmers of five trouble-torn villages, Kalicharanpur, Adhikaripara, Garchakraberia, Sonachura, Satnambar and Jalpai, are unable to access nearby markets, Mr Adhikary told The Statesman. The CPI-M has built up forces at Chowk Kendamari area near Tekhali, said Mr Adhikari. He alleged that betel leaf farmers are unable to access Mecheda Market because the CPI-M has put up camps near Khejuri.

Members from various social organisations and human rights groups, who visited Nandigram after 14 March massacre, have also observed that CPI-M has resorted to “economic terror” in Nandigram. They observed that farmers of affected villages have virtually been confined to their respective villages.

Agriculture and fishery are the two main economic activities of more than 60,000 people of the affected villages in Nandigram. A large number of people are engaged in trade of betel leaf. “Farmers told us that they were unable to take their produce to markets because CPI-M cadres are resisting them at Chandipure, a small town which connects Nandigram to Haldia,” Mr Amitdyuti Kumar, state committee member of the Association for Protection of Democratic Rights, said. The CPI-M has also put up camps at Bhangabera for allegedly restricting Nandigram farmers from accessing markets.

When contacted Mr Ashok Guria, a CPI-M district secretariat member from Midnapore (East), said that he was “unaware” of any “economic blockade” in Nandigram. “We didn’t dig up roads to restrict administration from accessing Nandigram. Those who had resorted to violence and kept Nandigram beyond the reach of administration for months are responsible for the consequences,” said Mr Guria.
