Kolkata: Top Maoist leader Kishenji today alleged that the Centre and CPI-M had colluded in setting up armed camps in West Midnapore district.

Though Chidambaram had admitted the existence of armed CPI(M) camps in Lalgrah, it was he who had been responsible for the armed camps, Kishenji said over phone from an undisclosed location.

"For the last one year the joint-forces have helped the CPI(M) enter the area and set up 90 camps creating an atmosphere of violence and anarchy in the region," he said.

The Maoist leader named West Bengal minister Sushanta Ghosh and CPI-M leaders like Anuj Pandey, Dalim Pandey, Dipak Sarkar, Dahareshwar Sen and Prasanta Das as responsible for the "anarchy" in the region and warned "they will not be spared".

He also cautioned that though CPI-M workers had reached upto Dharampur and "captured" some villages with the help of joint-forces, that did not mean that they had won the battle.

"They have progressed that far with arms supplied by the state government and under the protection of the joint- forces," Kishenji claimed.

Alleging that the Centre had launched anti-Maoist operation in the state only to give advantage to the CPI(M), he said "nothing can be more ridiculous than Chidambaram telling the state government to remove the camps".

The CPI (Maoist) has called a 48-hour bandh in eight states in West Bengal, Bihar, Orissa, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattishgarh from September 13, Kishenji said.

The bandh was also applicable in Gadchiroli, Bhandara and Chadrapur districts of Maharashtra and Balaghat district of Madhya Pradesh, he said.

"We demand the resignation of Union Home Minister P Chidambaram, Union Home Secretary G K Pillai, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah and Director General of Police Girish Kumar as we hold them responsible for Azad's murder," he said.
