Left Front seeks WB GUV's intervention into attacks on supporters
The opposition Left Front in West Bengal today pleaded Governor M K Narayanan for his intervention into the 'continual attacks' on Left parties in the state after the Lok Sabha elections.
'We consider the Governor, as the head of the state, is very much a part of the legislature and holds the key to bridge the Government and the opposition for maintaining unity, amity and harmony among the people of the state,' the Front said in a memorandum.
The memorandum was submitted to the Governor by a Left delegation, headed by Leader of the opposition Surjyakanta Mishra.
It alleged that after declaration of poll results, leaders of the ruling party in different parts of the state organised hooligans and anti-social elements and unleashed brutal attacks on the supporters, workers of the Left parties. Incidents of arson, loot, murderous attacks, demolition and burning houses of the supporters of Left parties, molestation of women, forceful occupation of party offices were being reported from all parts of the state, it said. 'The continual attack on Left parties will not only debilitate the other secular and democratic forces of the state, but also create estrangement among different segments of society irrespective of their political allegiance. We apprehend that no party or person, including those who support the ruling party would be spared,' the memorandum added.
