Talk fast with Maoists: Mamata to interlocutors
Kolkata: In a stern message to the
government-appointed team of interlocutors, West Bengal Chief
Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday asked it to act in view of
continuing violence in tribal `junglemahal` area despite halt
in joint force operations against Maoists.
Secretariat sources said she expressed her anguish and
asked the interlocutors, led by Sujato Bhadra, why killings
were taking place in `junglemahal` even after cessation of
operations by the combined forces.
"The government will not succumb to any terror tactics,"
she told the interlocutors and asked what they were doing
after meeting the Maoists in that area.
"Talk to them (the Maoists) fast and inform the
government what they want... Otherwise the government will not
tolerate," she said.
Earlier in the day, Bhadra met Banerjee and told newsmen
after it that the dialogue process with the Maoists in
`junglemahal` would continue though Banerjee had four days ago
given a seven-day deadline to the Maoists to lay down arms.
