Left Front demands action by West Bengal govt
Kolkata: The CPI(M)-led Left Front today demanded immediate steps against attacks on its party offices and workers in West Bengal following the heckling of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and manhandling of state finance minister Amit Mitra in Delhi on April 9.
"Arson, loot, ransacking and physical assault of party leaders have been reported from many areas," the Front said in a letter to the state Home Secretary Basudeb Banerjee calling for immediate government steps against it.
"Trinamool Congress did not spare Presidency University, even though the administration remained indifferent to the issue," the letter said.
It also said that the Front had unequivocally condemned the `undesirable` incident before Yojna Bhavan in Delhi and made enquiries about the health of the finance minister.
The letter, signed by leaders of its 10 constituents, referred to its demand for a judicial probe into the death of SFI leader Sudipta Gupta on April 2.
The Front warned that it would organise a movement unless its demand for effective steps by the state government was not conceded.
