Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister
Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee today ruled out withdrawal of joint
forces from the Maoist-affected `junglemahal` region.
"Every day Trinamool Congress is clamouring for
halting anti-Maoist operations. They want Maoists to kill us
and clear ground for them. We will not allow it. The people of
West Midnapore district will counter the Trinamool and the
Maoists," he said.
Maoists are even killing schools teachers in West
Midnapore district, Bhattacharjee told a women`s rally here.
On Wednesday, Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee demanded
for withdrawal of joint forces, whom she alleged were
assisting CPI-M`s armed cadre in committing `mass murder` in
villages in West Midnapore and also demanded a CBI inquiry.
On Banerjee`s visit to Darjeeling last week where she
was given a warm welcome by Gorkha Janmukti Morcha, he
thundered, "Why did she go to the hills? They (GJM) want to
break the unity between the plains and hills."
Describing Trinamool as a `one-woman` party, he said,
"Whatever she says is the policy of the party. All others sit
at her feet and can`t say anything.
"What kind of force (TC) is this? They don`t obey the
law and Constitution and suppress people by force. Shall we
accept this? Time has come to make it clear that we will not
allow them to do whatever they like.
"We have to strengthen ourselves. If everybody
stands up and says that they will not tolerate this unruly
party, then they can be alienated. Some people have realised
this, but not all."
