Kolkata: Left Front on Monday sought West Bengal
Governor MK Narayanan`s intervention in ending what it termed
as a "reign of terror" unleashed by Trinamool Congress against
Left activists and organisations after the Assembly polls.

"Today representatives of nine Left Front constituents
and Workers` Party met the Governor and sought his
intervention in ending the reign of terror unleashed by the
Trinamool Congress on Left activists and organisations,"
CPI(M) central committee member Mohammad Salim told newsmen
after meeting Narayanan.

Salim claimed that three CPI(M) activists were killed,
five injured and four women raped by Trinamool`s goons since
the results of the Assembly polls were announced, but no FIR
had been lodged or any arrests made.

He alleged that armed goons backed by TC were raiding the
Left party offices and dropping the arms there to justify the
attack. They are also dictating the police to book the Left
workers under the arms case, he said.

Elected Left representatives in various panchayats and
civic bodies are being ordered at gun-point to resign, he
claimed, adding that thousands of Left workers and supporters
along with women and children were forcibly evicted from their
homes.

"We have given the Governor a CD of the atrocities being
committed by Trinamool Congress. We have requested him to take
action within 48 hours. He has assured us that he will do it,"
Salim said.

Before meeting the Left Front delegation, the governor
also held a meeting with state DGP Naparajit Mukherjee and
city Police Commissioner RK Pachnanda.
