TMC MP Reveals Nexus Between Saradha and Mamata’s Battalion

IN a 36-minute video recorded earlier and broadcast on a local Bengali channel on 26th November, the arrested TMC Rajya Sabha member Kunal Ghosh put his party in great discomfiture by directly linking chief minister Mamata Banerjee and Trinamool’s national general secretary Mukul Roy, another Rajya Sabha MP, with the Saradha chit fund scam, the biggest financial scam in the history of West Bengal.

Kunal Ghosh, himself a close associate of Sudipta Sen, the Saradha group CEO, including for its media business, spilled the beans after he was cornered in the investigations.

Unprecedented Terror in the Panchayat Elections in Burdwan

THE scope of analysing the recent Panchayat election results of Burdwan district in West Bengal is, in many ways, somewhat limited. It is very difficult to determine people’s true preferences amidst planned disruption of the electoral process by Trinamool Congress (TMC). It is rational to compare the present Panchayat election ‘results’ with that of the last 2011 assembly elections, where, even amidst the so-called ‘paribortan’ wave, the Left front still won 9 out of 25 seats in this district and secured 44.8 per cent votes.

In Rejinagar, a group of CPI(M) activists were attacked when they were returning after campaigning in panchayat elections. Comrade Debsharan Ghosh and Comrade Amar Ghosh were shot dead on the spot.

Mayhem in Panchayat Elections

AS this report goes to press, the fate of panchayat elections in West Bengal is hanging in absolute uncertainty. The continuing refusal of the state administration to clarify the security arrangements, incessant requests of state election commission in this regard, coupled with widespread terrorisation by the ruling party have created an unprecedented situation in the state. Panchayat elections have been held seven times during the period of Left Front government, but the state has not experienced such a catastrophe.

Terror Tactics in Howrah By-Poll

RULING Trinamul Congress has unleashed a spate of terror in Howrah ahead of parliamentary by-elections there. Elections will be held on June 2.

As the campaign picked up, TMC hooligan squads began to attack CPI(M) activists and sympathisers to obstruct political campaign. In many areas, TMC hoodlums are creating obstacles in the campaign of Left Front candidate Srideep Bhattacharya. TMC has unleashed hoodlums who are tearing banners, defacing wall writings. They are also moving house to house threatening Left Front workers and sympathizers, to create an atmosphere of fear.
