Kolkata, Nov 17 (UNI) West Bengal CPI(M) Secretary Biman Bose today urged the Left Front government to move the Supreme Court against yesterday's Calcutta High Court verdict terming the March 14 Nandigram firing as ''unconstitutional''.

Addressing a rally here, Mr Bose said the Maoists were strengthening their bases in Nandigram shattering peace in the area for the past one year and questioned whether the High Court would decide what the State Government would have to do to deal with the menace.

He categorically stated that the government had no intention to grab agricultural land for setting up industries and accused the Bhumi Uchchhed Pratirodh Committee (BUPC) members of creating terror in the area in connivance with other political parties and the Maoists.

Mr Bose appealed to all to return home sans any fear and asserted that when his party workers were rendered homeless in Nandigram, there was not a semblance of protest from any intellectual, but now they were raising their voices.

He stated that only the CPI(M) could separate the separatists and ruled out the possibility of any reprisal.

Mr Bose said that in all, 27 party workers had lost their lives in the past eleven months and asked for a list from the Opposition on how many of their workers had fallen prey.

Rallies, meetings and processions would be organised in all the blocks of the state to maintain peace, he added.
