None of the speakers raised the murder of PCPA president Lalmohan Tudu
Top Maoist leader Kishenji has expressed disappointment with the August 9 rally at Lalgarh addressed by Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, which he and the People's Committee against Police Atrocities (PCPA) supported.
Kishenji said the rally was held for “petty political gain” by the Trinamool Congress.
“Despite utterances by leaders against terrorisation by the CPI(M) at the rally, Mamata and her party hijacked it for petty political gain to pave the way for her and her party to wean the people away from Maoists and the PCPA; it was much less a peace initiative,” Kishenji said in an open letter dated August 28.
Kishenji said none of the speakers at the rally raised the “diabolical murder” by the security forces of PCPA president Lalmohan Tudu.
He was killed on February 22 at Kantapahari in West Midnapore district.
Swami Agnivesh criticised
The letter also accused social activist Swami Agnivesh of “toeing Union Home Minister P. Chidamabaram's line.”
Asking Swami Agnivesh, who took part in the rally, to inquire into the “murders in the name of encounter” of central committee members, Patel Sudhakar Reddy and Shakamunri Appa Rao, besides Azad, the letter, a copy of which is available with PTI, said he should work for the establishment of an independent committee for investigation.
The committee should also investigate the “atrocities” allegedly committed by the joint forces and the CPI(M) workers.
