KOLKATA: Surya Kanta Mishra, Leader of the Opposition in the West Bengal Assembly, alleged here on Friday that ever since the new State Government was formed attacks were being perpetrated against Left Front workers in different parts of the State in the name of seizing illegal weapons.

Mr Mishra along with other Left leaders met Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and expressed concern over the unabated attacks on Left Front workers and leaders ever since the results of the Assembly elections in the State were announced more than three weeks ago.

“These so-called arms seized are being used as an excuse to conduct attacks. We had been pleased with the Chief Minister's appeal to the people not to take the law into their own hands, but her words have not translated into action on the ground,” said Mr. Mishra, who is also a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist).

He said there had even been instances when the police have not reported any arms seized from a CPI (M) party office, but Trinamool Congress supporters have insisted that weapons have been housed. After that, arms have been recovered from ponds, fields or wrapped in red flags, he added.

“We definitely want illegal arms to be seized. Presently the largest haul of illegal arms in the State is with the Maoists that must also be seized alongside the other combing operations,” he said, adding that the Left wanted to appeal to the administration to conduct the process impartially.
