Hyderabad: CPI(M) on Sunday held the Maoists, Trinamool Congress and Congress as responsible for the killing of over 280 Left supporters in West Bengal in last one year.

"After the general elections last year more than 280 comrades of Left parties and particularly CPI (M) have been killed in the attacks conducted by Maoists, TMC and Congress.
Terror unleashed by TMC and Maoists is aided by the Congress through out the state," CPI (M) West Bengal state secretariat member Sridip Bhattacharyya alleged here. Addressing a solidarity meeting "Against Brutal Attacks of Trinamool Congress and Maoists on Left front Government in West Bengal" organised by CPI(M)`s state Committee here, Bhattacharyya accused the TMC and Maoists of working together with an aim to oust the Left front government in West Bengal.

In the last one year attacks against the supporters of Left parties particularly CPI (M) has intensified and become tremendous, Bhattacharyya said adding, "even after knowing
everything, the Centre is keeping mum and even supporting the TMC."
The Maoists and TMC "goons" are brutally killing women, labourers, teachers, youths and even students mainly in the three south-west districts of Paschim Medinipur, Bankura
and Purulia, he said.

Left party has undertaken concrete programmes to win over those sections of people who have been kept at a distance Bhattacharyya said, adding, "Better functioning of the Left
front government and administration has also been given priority." The CPI (M) leaders expressed hope saying "We will be able to overcome the conspiracies and ensure the victory of CPI (M) and Left in the next elections."
