"I and Mamata Banerjee then should not be obstructed by CPI-M hoodlums and should be allowed to go and see for ourselves that Nandigram is really terror free," Patkar told PTI before leaving with relief materials for the affected in Nandigram.
"The real face of the CPI-M has been exposed with party cadres assaulting unarmed people and even Left intellectuals are coming under attack for speaking their mind," Patkar, who was assaulted allegedly by CPI-M supporters on her way to Nandigram on November 8, said.
If Nandigram was actually terror free there was no need then for the Central Reserve Police Force, she said.
"Sonachura and Gokulnagar were forcibly acquired by the CPI-M," she said, adding, "This is criminalisation of politics. The killings must stop."
