Tackling Violence – The Commie Way

The West Bengal government has decided to call out Army to control clashes in Kolkata over Nandigram.

Earlier, activists of the All India Minority Forum protesting the violence in Nandigram on Wednesday indulged in brick-batting, blocked roads and clashed with police, which used batons and teargas to disperse the protesters.

The character, or lack of it, of India’s communists is on full display here. Nandigram burns for more than a month. Hundreds die. Forget sending the army, the CPI(M) makes sure that even the Police stays away. And when a bunch of protesters pelt stones, the army is called-in! Who needs terrorists when we have commies?

Update: Seems the situation is Kolkata is more serious than I earlier thought. The entire city had been brought to a halt due to the violence and lots of public property was damaged. It’s now being debated that the protests could have been used as a diversionary tactic. Mamata Bannerjee, who deplored what happened in Nandigram is yet to make a statement against what heppened today.

Update 2: This is my post # 100.

    I wonder why you never seem to criticise them.

    The begining of the end?

    @Ottayan: For the CPM? Don’t think so.

    Their ideologies aren’t to blame…people themselves are at the crux of the problem!

    The communist state has failed everywhere else around the world. What makes their ideologies correct?

    The commies are a rare breed. They are the masters of ‘double speak’.

    Communism is a failed concept. Even though democracy is not really a panacea to all evils, still its the better option. Just look at the states the commies have ruled. Kerala, West Bengal. Both absolutely f****d up places.

    Congrats on ur 100th post.

    Right said Liju: At least in Kerala you’ve had the Congress and CPI alternating. But in WB, the CPI’s roots have grown so deep, it’s impossible to get rid of them.

    Thank you Santhosh and Liju. Hope to keep going on.

    Commies seem to be dyeing their faded red shirts with the blood of Nandigram victims.
    (I think opposition parties are also responsible for making the situation worse esp Trinamul)
    2]Adding fuel to fire is –
    agitation by the All India Minority Forum in Kolkata-resulting in violence and huge loss of property.
    Wonder,if violence is norm in Kolkatta.

    Pundit: Communal violence is less in Kolkata. That’s why some people are calling this a diversionary tactic by political parties.
