Coverage: Violence Rocks Nandigram

The Communist Party of India - Marxist, which is under all-round attack over the unabated violence in Nandigram, on Monday accused the Trinamool Congress of taking the help of Maoists to create trouble in the area and insisted that normalcy will be restored there soon.

Party General Secretary Prakash Karat said that the Trinamool Congress was indulging in certain activities as it had failed to win the confidence of people in a democratic manner.

"Trinamool Congress has taken the help of Maoists to consolidate their hold in the area," Karat told reporters in New Delhi after the two-day meeting of the party politburo.

He alleged that the Maoists had driven out common people from Nandigram about two months ago and later consolidated their positions, preventing even the administration from entering the area.

Karat claimed the Maoists had built bunkers and set up training camps in Nandigram.

He added that even National Security Adviser M K Narayanan had spoken about the involvement of Maoists in Nandigram violence.
