JDP focus on role of Maoists- Help sought for tribal welfare

Posted by Indian Vanguard on May 15, 2007

Jamshedpur, May 14: Apparently impressed by the role of Maoists in pulling down monarchy in Nepal, the Jharkhand Dishom Party (JDP) today appealed to the Communist Party of India (Maoist) to “restore” democracy in the state.

This is for the first time that any political outfit has sought the help of rebels to work for the interest of underprivileged section of the society in Jharkhand.

At a news conference here today, JDP state president Kaviraj Murmu and its central vice-president Sonaram Soren, district president Eshwar Soren with other senior members blamed the ruling government for not conducting Panchayat elections in Jharkhand despite directive from the Supreme Court.

Founder of JDP and former BJP MP Salkhan Murmu said the rebels have created a strong base in the state. “But, if the rebels want to survive in future, they need to work for the larger interest of common man,” he said.

“The Naxalites have successfully created base at the village. But unless the armed guerrillas take up a public issue, it is not possible for them to survive in future. The people have lost their trust in the democracy and so, the rebels can play an active role in the state.” Murmu said.

State president of the JDP said the government has failed to conduct Panchayat polls for nearly three decades.

“The panchayati election is aimed to empower villagers. The central government provides funds for the development of them. But the state has not received any fund for the last 30 years,” Murmu said.

Central vice president of JDP said his political outfit is against any violence. “But the people have lost faith on the politicians and bureaucrats. The politicians of the ruling and Opposition party are indulged in corruption. None of them is working for the common man and I believe, the Naxalites can change the fate of the people in Jharkhand.” Soren said.

Posted by Indian Vanguard on May 15, 2007

NAGPUR: Two hardcore naxalites—Murali alias Mahesh alias Ashok Satyam Reddy and Arun Ferriera alias Sanjay Choudhary—may under go narco analysis test at Mumbai’s forensic laboratory. The duo was arrested with another two naxals near Deekshabhoomi last Tuesday.

The Nagpur police had filed an application in this regard on Friday before judicial magistrate first class R S Aradhey who is in-charge of court No 2 on the district and sessions court premises in Nagpur.

The court then asked the naxalites’ counsels, including Surendra Gadling, Anil Kale, Deepak Kanojia, and Harshal Lingayat, to file their replies.However, the counsels told the court that they couldn’t file the reply immediately

since they hadn’t received copies of the first information report (FIR), narco-analysis application, documents detailing charges against Murali or information obtained from the pen drive recovered from the naxalites. The police provided the counsels with the required documents on Monday except the information obtained from the pen drive since it is ‘highly confidential.’

During the hearing before third judicial magistrate first class N S Momin on Monday, the counsels for the naxalites pleaded before the court that they would need some more time to file the reply and would submit their replies on March 16. Advocate P Sathianathan appeared for the state government.

The application filed by assistant police commissioner (Sitabuldi division) D D Gawande stated that the naxals who are booked under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) should be subjected to narco-analysis, brain mapping and lie-detector tests, as they were not revealing their original plans and their purpose of coming to the city.

Today only Dr. Sen returned from Kolkotta after a fortnight’s rest and treatment. At about 1 pm, a policeman went to the office of Adv Sudha Bhardwaj, Member, Executive Committee, Chhattisgarh PUCL, and informed that the City Superintendent of Police, Bilaspur would like to record a statement. At this point, both Dr. Sen and Adv Bhardwaj went to the Tar Bahar Police Station, Bilaspur. They were then told that a police party was coming from Raipur for formal arrest. A police party led by Mr. B B S Rajpur, SSP (City), Raipur came along with others, and formally arrested him, sent him for medical examination and then produced him in the court of the CJM, Bilaspur.

It is expected that police would move further applications in the matter, like issuance of search warrant of his residence/premises, etc.
