Booklet titled ‘Jnaneswari Hatyakanda' released
‘A proper reply on Rajarhat issue given already'
KOLKATA: Even though the facts have emerged about the derailment of the Jnaneswari Express in Paschim Medinipur district on May 28, the Trinamool Congress continues to spread lies about the involvement of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) in the incident, Biman Bose, State CPI(M) Secretary, said here on Tuesday.
“As soon as the Jnaneswari Express incident occurred, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee stood there and declared that the CPI(M) was responsible,” Mr. Bose said, adding that the accusation was reminiscent of the 1970s when a Congress leader had immediately implicated the CPI(M) in the murder of All-India Forward Bloc leader Hemanta Basu.
Mr. Bose said that even though investigating agencies have made several revelations, a section of the Trinamool leadership continued to lie about the involvement of the CPI(M) in the sabotage.
Releasing a booklet titled ‘Jnaneswari Hatyakanda' (Jnaneswari Massacre), Mr. Bose said that the true facts about the incident had been collated from various newspapers and published to set the record straight.
“In the name of politics, she [Ms. Banerjee] has made a business of telling lies,” Mr. Bose said, speaking on the eve of a week-long programme by the Left Front in the State on various issues including the rise in prices of essential commodities and violence launched by the Trinamool in an attempt to create anarchy and obstruct development.
On the brewing controversy over allegations of forcible land acquisition at Rajarhat by Ms. Banerjee, Mr. Bose said he would not like to comment on the issue as State Housing Minister Gautam Deb, who is the head of the project, had already given a point-by-point reply to her.
“Since Ms. Banerjee does not have any answer to Mr. Deb's questions, she ducked the issue by claiming that he is not a minister of ‘her category,'” Mr. Bose added.
