Violence Rocks Nandigram

The opposition National Democratic Alliance on Tuesday night accused West Bengal's ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist of declaring a war on Indian state through its policy in Nandigram and charged the United Progressive Alliance government of "Dhritarashtra-like inaction" on the issue.

"The CPI-M has declared war not only on the people of Nandigram, but also on the Indian state. Under the Dhritarashtra-like impotence of the Sonia-Manmohan dispensation, the CPI-M has declared Nandigram a no-go area and established a Red Republic accountable to none," Leader of Opposition Lal Kishanchand Advani said in a statement.

"The CPI-M has now let loose a reign of terror with their private army comprising history-sheeters," said Advani who had led a NDA delegation to Nandigram earlier in the day.

"We heard of horrific reports of mothers being hacked to death before their children for the temerity to participate in a peace march", he said.
