Kolkata: Trinamool Congress chief Mamata
Banerjee Sunday accused the CPI-M of killing her party workers
and then putting up posters blaming the Maoists for the crime.
Stating that she did not support killings by Maoists and
was against the politics of blood, Mamata alleged that the
CPI-M put the blame on Maoists after killing her party workers
like what it did at Sankrail in West Midnapore district Saturday
"It would be proved if an investigation was conducted,"
she told reporters here.
The police said Hemanto Mahato, a Trinamool worker, was
forcibly taken away from his house in the Sankrail area last
night by the Maoists and shot dead. His bullet-ridden body
was found this morning.
In posters kept near Mahato`s body, the ultras claimed
that he was a police informer and was involved in extorting
money from locals.
Mamata, who said she would hold a meeting at Lalgarh
in West Midnapore district on August 9, wondered why most
places in the district were under prohibitory orders for a
"I will hold a meeting at Lalgarh on August 9. Why
should prohibitory orders under Section 144 CrPC be in force
in 70 per cent areas in West Midnapore? Why only CPI-M should
hold meeting there," she asked.
She said she would leave for Delhi tomorrow and embark on
a mass-contact programme from Nanoor on August 5.
