Trinamool has links with GJM, says Biman Bose

Staff Reporter

“It must be receiving encouragement from many quarters”

KOLKATA: With tensions brewing in the Darjeeling hills and the Dooars in the plains of north Bengal, West Bengal Left Front chairman Biman Bose alleged here on Friday that the Trinamool Congress maintains links with those responsible for violence in the hills.

“The GJM [Gorkha Janmukti Morcha] is playing with fire. Such a force must be receiving encouragement from both national and international quarters, otherwise it would not have been so bold,” Mr. Bose said.

He compared the relations between the Trinamool and GJM with the alleged ties between the State's main Opposition party and the Maoists in the Jangalmahal region.

Referring to the current turbulence in Darjeeling district after the February 8 violence, the leader said whereas attempts at creating conflict in the hills were seen in the past, this time they had descended to the plains in the Dooars.

‘Position shifted'

Mr. Bose pointed out that the GJM had shifted its position from the time discussions were held about holding elections for the interim council after the Assembly polls.

On the Left Front rally to be held in the city on February 13, Mr. Bose said the number of persons attending it may surpass the numbers at all others.

Apologising for the inconvenience it may cause, he suggested that people travelling that day leave early for the airport and railway stations as traffic snarls are likely.

However, Mr. Bose assured that arrangements will be made so that emergency vehicles, such as ambulances, will be allowed to pass.

He also alleged that the Trinamool, at times on its own, at times with the Maoists and at others with the Congress, was responsible for the violence, terror and lawlessness currently being witnessed in the State.

The issue will feature prominently in the rally, he said.
