CPI(M) on Thursday accused Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee of leading an “unholy alliance” with Maoists in West Bengal to destabilise the elected Left Front government in the state. “The Trinamool Congress is trying to destabilise the pro-poor Left government by unleashing terror in connivance with Maoist forces in parts of West Bengal,” CPI (M) Politburo member Brinda Karat said addressing a protest rally here by party workers against the unabated violence in Lalgarh.

Alleging that the Trinamool chief is leading the violence from behind the scene,Karat said the Maoists and the “Trinamoolis” are killing her party workers and “conspiring to disrupt law and order in the state”. “So far 53 comrades have been killed in the orchestrated brutal attacks which has also got backing of the main opposition party,” she said adding that the planned and systematic strategy to weaken Left parties in its bastion by “fascist forces” would be resisted in all forms.

During the protest,CPI(M) members also observed a minute-long silence to condole the death of their colleagues in troubled Lalgarh. Condemning the killing of its cadre by Maoists,CPI(M) had earlier asked the Centre to to immediately sent para military forces to West Midnapore district in West Bengal.
