BENGAL has become Lawless Land. As TMC goons with police support prevented the Bhangar Committee members from filing nominations and assaulted within the BDO office, as per the High Court Order the aspiring candidates of Jomi Jibika o Vastutantro Raksha Committe (Land, Livelihood, Ecology and Environment Protection Committee) of Bhangar were allowed to submit nomination papers to the DM of South 24 Parganas. Accordingly they went to the DM office at Alipore, Kolkata on 23rd April. Surprisingly the DM was not present in his office and made the candidates to wait. Meantime, huge force of TMC goons reached inside the office with sticks and arms and attacked and severely injured the candidates, the leaders of Bhangar movement and Party Central Committee member Com Sharmistha Choudhury; and they were abducted and detained till evening.

All these happened with the clear cut knowledge and in alliance with administration, utterly ignoring the constitutional obligations and even orders of Judiciary. The Chief Minister Mamta led West Bengal Administration has turned the state in to independent empire of goons. No court order is applicable to them. Bengal is turned in to a state where nominations for local body elections cannot be filed by any of the opposition parties freely! Bengal is bleeding and all constitutional authorities have become mere spectators. Should we allow this mockery of democracy to continue!

As per the High Court Order the aspiring candidates of Jomi Jibika o Vastutantro Raksha Committe of Bhangar were allowed to submit the nomination papers to the DM of South 24 Parganas. As it was prevented through criminal attacks, finally the court allowed the filing of nominations of 11 comrades through whattsap. But the criminal gang leader Arabul Islam is continuing the armed attacks on the villagers and terrorizing them to prevent voting. Though the condition at Bhangar is most severe, it is almost the same condition all over the state. Once again the whole local body elections are turned in to a mockery by thousands of TMC goons supported by police and administration. Party leaders including CC member Sankar along with leading MKP comrades Amitabh, Biswajit and Ratul are arrested and remanded to prevent submission of nominations and any campaign.

In this situation, the Bhangar Committee and the W. Bengal state committee of the Party along with MKP, PCC and other like-minded forces have decided to face the challenge unitedly, defending the people’s struggle at Bhangar and struggling against the state terror and criminalization of the administration. From 22nd April, Party Day, to 28th April at all India level Bhangar solidarity week was observed extending all out support to the movement. We appeal to all democratic forces to come out in the streets as witnessed on 18th April and many other earlier occasions at Kolkata to express solidarity with the fighting people of Bhangar and to put an end to the utter hooliganism and criminal activities of the TMC rule. 

The Communist movement in India has a history of almost a century after the salvos of October Revolution in Russia brought Marxism-Leninism to the people of India who were engaged in the national liberation struggle against the British colonialists. It is a complex and chequered history.
