The CPI(ML) severely condemns the killing of Lalmohan Tudu, the President of PCPA in Lalgarh by CRPF on 22-02-2010.
The CPI(ML) supported the just demands of the people raised by the PCPA in November 2008. The state, instead of conceding their just demands resorted to repressive tactics and armed CPI(M) groups were engaged along with police. At this stage, armed Maoist squads intervened and started their programme of eliminating all political forces who differ with them. Since the entry of the joint forces, people’s suffering has gone up and many people have left the area.
The PCC CPI(ML) demands immediate end to hostilities by the security forces, the CPI(M) squads and the Maoist squads and creation of an atmosphere where every person can freely express his political opinion. Only in such an atmosphere, the people can discuss the form of self rule required for their development.
