Maoists against development: CPI(M)

Written by: Staff

Kolkata, Nov 23(UNI) The CPI(M) today alleged that the ''underground Maoists'' were disrupting development programmes in the backward West Bengal regions and called for mobilising the people against such forces.

''The recent incidents have proved that the Maoists extremists do not want development activities. These forces are not even shy of disrupting programmes for providing drinking water to the people,'' party's State Committee Secretary Biman Basu said in a statement.

He alleged that the Jharkand party and the Congress were backing up the underground Maoists, and a combined effort of the people and administration was necessary to isolate them from society.

He said a gang of ''miscreants'' had set ablaze several cars, a pay loader and a road roller belonging to a contractor firm, engaged in construction of a road under the Prime Minister's Gram Sadak Yojna progamme, at Chhurimara in West Midnapore district yesterday.

The ''miscreants'' had triggered mine blasts and fired gun shots.

In another incident the previous day, a mine was set off in the Hatidoba forest in the district injuring a police man. Police suspected that the ''so called'' Maosits were involved in both incidents, Mr Basu said.
