Protest Maoist Killings

This is the fist time such a big number of killings of political activists has taken place in West Bengal. This is part of the ongoing sequence of murders in cold blood and shows the depths to which Maoists depredations can stoop. The killings add upto 221 of Left activists and leaders since the last Lok Sabha elections in the three districts of Jangal Mahal as a result of the close complicity between the Maoists and the Trinamul Congress.

Central Committee Communique

The 2G spectrum scam is a prime example of the big business-politician-bureaucrat nexus which has now become the hallmark of the neo-liberal regime. As early as February 2008, the CPI(M) had brought to the attention of the country the blatantly illegal manner in which allocation of 2G spectrum and licences were made causing a huge loss to the exchequer. The role of the Union Minister A. Raja was also clear.

Polit Bureau Communique

The demolition of the Babri Masjid in December 1992 was a criminal offence and an assault on the secular principle. It is true that this was not a matter being considered by the Special Bench. However, there are apprehensions that the reasoning set out in the judgements may be taken as a post-facto justification for the demolition. The cases pertaining to the demolition which are being heard by other courts have to be seriously pursued.
