On the other hand, the Maoists have affirmed their commitment to the objectives not in terms of the seizure of lands, crops, or other immediate goals, but the seizure of power. Within this perspective, participation in elections and engagement with the prevailing 'bourgeois democracy' are rejected, and all efforts and attention is firmly focused on so-called 'revolutionary activities' to undermine the state and seize power.
There is no denying the fact that the Maoists have already been able to create a reign of terror in many parts of the country by way of brutal murders of innocent people, creating free zones and resorting to all types of most destructive methods.
Both the Prime Minister and the Home Minister have termed Maoists as the largest single threat to the safety and security of the country.
But it is most shocking to find that Miss Mamata Banerjee and six other Central Ministers are actively hand in gloves with the Maoists who are waging a war against the nation. They are often seen hobnobbing with them. The Maoists and Naxalites decorate her political platforms and official railway functions. Besides, she has not only demanded the withdrawal of the on going offensive by the Joint Forces at Lalgarh against the Maoist terrorists but also has warned of burning the whole of West Bengal if any action is taken against the ‘so-called’ intellectuals having direct connection, role and involvement in the brutal murders and antinational destructive activities carried out by the Maoists.
It is often said that everybody irrespective of affiliation or position is equal in the eye of the law. If it is so, why “Unlawful Activities Prevention Act” should not be used against Mamata Banerjee and six other Central Ministers belonging to the TMC for helping the antinational Maoist terrorists directly?
