Does history repeats itself? May or may not be. But the ?Direct Action? line-up of shoreward, Prime Minister of Bengal in 1946 is studiously followed by Buddhadev Bhattacharjee, the CPM Chief Minister of West Bengal in 2007. Suhrawardy posted committed Police officers at various police stations in Calcutta so that they remain inactive (and there help) during the pre-planned murder, rape, arson and loot by the rioteous league criminals. It was done in Calcutta on August 16, 1946.
Buddha Bhattacharjee followed the same infamous line-up in Nandigram from November 7 to 12, 2007 by keeping the entire police force, believe it or not, totally inactive and duty free in the Nandigram villages while the CPM cadres and recruited professional murderers armed with AK-47 rifles, pistols and other sharp weapons murdered men and women, raped women, burnt down houses of peasants to capture the entire area of Nandigram and to force people to become bluntly submissive to CPM. Suhrawardy wanted Partition of India on communal line, Buddha wanted to offer entire Nandigram area as a zone Estate to Salim group of Indonesia for their Chemical Hub for an incredible period of time under lease evicting, driving out thousands of peasants from their land and livelihood. It is no less than parting away with a fertile area of the state.
The villages brutally stormed by the CPM criminal cadres are Sonachura, Gokulnagar, Kalicharanpur, Garchakraberia, Maheshpur, Kendemari, Nandigram etc.
How many men and women are murdered? How many women are raped? How many houses are burnt and looted? How many children are made orphanes? No body yet can count. All leaders of recognised political parties, all press and media people, all Intellectuals, Social Workers-all people were debarred to enter into the vast area by the rioteous CPM cadres in presence of the silent spectator police.
None-be that Mamta Banerjee or Partha Chatterjee, leader of the opposition in West Bengal Assembly or Manas Bhuian, leader of Congress Legislature party in West Bengal Assembly or Medha Patekar or persons of literary-cultural world or press and media people or groups of medical practitioners willing to treat injured people in that area for the said assaults were permitted by the CPM criminals to enter into that zone or Nandigram so long their operation to cleanse the area was completed.
Suhrawardy'splan could not work more than three days in 1946, Buddha'splan have continued for full seven days in 2007.
Why? Because the CPM, ruling thirty years on West Bengal, has become immensely experienced by continuously practicing murderous political game under the shades of huge financial advantages. The blood chilling barbarity on Sainbari, Burdwan in day-light, 1969 followed by alive burning of 17 Ananda-Margi Sannyasis in day-light on Bijon Setu, Calcutta, 1970, burning of five RSP activists ( A Party in Left Front) in eightys, Chhota-Angaria massacre, Keshpur massacre, murder of Anita Down and rape on her associates on the populous market place in open afternoon and many such assault., murder, loot are the track records of CPM rule in West Bengal. In all such cases all the hardened criminals have gone scot free for what reasons everybody knows. The said track record was only added by 14 murders, innumerable rapes, murder of children in open day light by the CPM cadre-criminals on the very presence of state police on March14, 2007. However, M.K.Narayanan, National Security Advisor to Union Government has stated in Moscow on November 12, 2007 that 25 persons were murdered, not 14 only, at Nandigram on the said March 14, 2007. This has been stated in Daily Statesman by S.R.Sengupata, a very senior journalist, on November 13, 2007.
The 7 to 12 November, 2007 mass massacre is more gruesome, planned and well connived as is done by the fascists or the arch communalists.
Reports are there and people know many dead bodies were despoiled and robbed by CPM armed marauders and thrown into rivers to cover up the crimes committed.
CPM has gained such skill by long exercise being in governance for thirty years. And most of the present serving police employees are recruits during the CPM rule since 1977 and partisan selection for recruitment is a brand policy of the Marxists. Common sense says the present marauding cadres get support from the erstwhile cadres. That is also a liaison under CPM captaincy.
What is the record of murders in West Bengal during 30 years of CPM rule? In CPM's?Oasis or Peace? at lest about 55,000 people have been murdered by last thirty years. The said fact is revealed by yearwise data band in Daily statesman November 11, 2007.
The blood chilling? (as described properly by West Bengal Governor himself) murders at Nandigram are yet not known to the outside people as the full facts are yet to be revealed. All roads to Nandigram are blocked by CPM cadres and Press-Media people are threatened of dire consequence if they dare write the factual reports.
Are the people living in a constitutional democratic state? Should the people be spitefully thrushed under the heels of a party that has substituted the civil state machinery? How many lives, how many rapes are needed to keep CMP's Bill-Board of ?Oasis of Peace? hanged over the dead corpse of people? How long it will be permitted to continue as it is to day?
The Calcutta Great Killings of 1946 (the whole coined by the Statesman then), 1946 Noakhali Genocide (Where Gandhiji was ethically, politically dispirited) and 2007 Nandigram massacres (where constitutional democracy is erased by Buddha Bhattacharjee, CPM CM following Suhrawardy'smeans of criminal wrecking of governance in 1946) shall go down in the annals of Bengal as the blackest days of woeful tale and shame!
