CPI-M demands explanation over Kishenji’s killing

Kolkata (IANS) The CPI-M on Sunday said the truth behind the death of Maoist leader Kishenji needs to come out and demanded an explanation from the Mamata Banerjee government.

“(Trinamool Congress MP) Abhishek Banerjee had recently said that Kishenji had been killed by their government in 2011. It has revealed that the Mamata Banerjee government had organised a fake ‘encounter’ to eliminate the Maoist leader after her objective was achieved,” said party politburo member Mohammed Salim.

He alleged the Maoists had played an active role in bringing the Trinamool to power, but after assuming office, party supremo Mamata Banerjee had split with the ultra-Leftists.

“Abhishek (Banerjee) has exposed the truth,” he said.

“People have every right to know the exact facts,” he said.

Abhishek Banerjee, nephew of the chief minister had said: “The Mamata Banerjee government, by killing him, has proved that in days to come, people will have the final word.”

Communist Party of India-Maoist leader Koteswar Rao alias Kishenji was killed on November 24, 2011 in a gun battle in West Midnapore district near the Bengal-Jharkhand border.

The Left Front had previously also alleged a nexus between the Maoists and the Trinamool Congress.

The CPI-M leader said the Left Front will organise a procession on Monday in Kolkata to protest against the chit fund scam in West Bengal, the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh and the alleged involvement of Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje in the Lalit Modi scandal.
