Biman Bose Praises Police for Malkhan's Arrest
Malda, 13 April, 2014: State Left Front (LF) chairman Biman Bose, who was in Malda today, credited the police for arrest of dreaded KLO militant Malkhan Singh alias Madhab Mandal. However, he hinted that KLO and Kamtapur movement got indirect encouragement from Trinamul Congress.
Before leaving for Itahar to address an election meeting this morning, Bose said, “KLO had always been a threat in North Bengal. DYFI leader Shekhar Singha was killed in a KLO attack in 2006. It is the relentless effort of police that finally brought the success of arresting Malkhan Singh. Police have done a praiseworthy job.”
However, he added that in previous election Trinamul tacitly encouraged the Kamtapur movement. “Uttare Kamta, Dakshine Mamata” (North is for Kamta, south is for Mamata) was the popular slogan then. So, Trinamul cannot deny responsibility of flourishing of such disruptive forces,” he added.
The state LF chairman alleged that the chief minister Mamata Banerjee was considering herself above the law. “She must know that no one is above law and all must abide by the constitution of the country,” Bose said here today.
