Statement of Santosh Rana for PCC CPI(ML) on the murder of

Babu Bose in Jangalmahal by Maoists

Dated 26-9-2011

Sri Babu Bose, the leader of
Jharkhand Janamukti Morcha and Jharkhand Andolan Samanway Mancha was murdered
by the Maoists on 25-9-2011. The PCC CPI(ML) severely condemns this gruesome
murder. Thoughout his political life, Sri Babu Bose fought for autonomy of
Jharkhand cultural region and for rights of Adivasis on
land,forest and water. He was active in the formation of Jharkhand Andolan
Samanway Mancha which was a united platform of CPI(ML) and four Jharkhandi
parties.During the Left Front rule in
West Bengal, the state government had lodged him in jail for years on the basis
of trumped up charges. After the Trinamul Congress government came to power,
the Samanway Mancha had submitted a memorandum
to the state government demanding autonomy for Jangalmahal.

In the Jangalmahal, the Maoist
have killed more than 300 activists and sympathizers of CPI(M), the Jharkhand
Party, Trinamul Congress and Congress over the last three years. Overwhelming
majority of them are poor Dalits and Adivasis. In the Jangalmahal, the Maoits
have no programme of mobilizing the masses on the issues of wage, job, land,
water and forest. They simply want to establish their hegemony in the area by
physically liquidating the activists of all other political parties. We, on
behalf of CPI(ML) have ,on many occasions talked to them and tried to persuade
them to rectify this disastrous line. But they have not seen reason.

We, the PCC CPI(ML) oppose their
line of liquidating activists of all other political parties. We call upon the
people to unite to defend the fundamental right of supporting or opposing any
political party. The Indian people have achieved this fundamental right through
many struggles .The agenda before the people is to expand this right, not to
throw it away. The CPI(ML) believes that the people of Jangalmahal will
defeatthe Maoist strategy of bringing this
area under their dictate.
