Was Operation Green Hunt a boon to CPI(M)?? An in depth analysis with inside story of Maoist efffcted Jungalmahal area of Paschimbanga (West Bengal)..

Dear viewers you are well aware of Maoist problem in western part of Paschimbanga and please remember that previous government of Paschimbanga (then West Bengal) by leftist (mainly CPIM) was granted huge paramilitary forces by our central government and with them they have conducted a massive operation named “Operation Green Hunt” in Maoist effected areas of W.B.

But in reality this operation was a boon for CPIM as they used all paramilitary forces and other sate machinery for there own political & personal gain only.

In Jangal Mahal, a western part of West Bengal, under the jurisdiction of Paschimanchal Development department, looked after by one of the two czars of Paschim Medinipur district, former minister for Paschimanchal Development Sushanta Ghosh (the other being the Beriaite district CPIM party secretary Dipak Sarkar) it had reaped dividends for the CPI(M) which had recaptured much of its lost bases in collaboration with the Eastern Frontier Rifles and central para-military forces.
Among 40 villages such as Enayetpur, Kanakavati, Bhadutola, Karnagad, Syedpur, Goaltor,Amlaguli,Salboni and Sijua , camps for training cadres and hired goons were underwent. In the entire Jangal Mahal assembly of more than four persons were prohibited in those areas under section 144 of CrPc but CPI(M) cadres and leaders were exempted from the CrPc as they were being a reserve force to the so-called counter-insurgency operation, conducted by 35 companies ( or may be more) of central paramilitary forces to terrorise thousands of innocent and poverty-stricken Adivasis.

The CPIM’s main aim was:

1.      To displace the Adivasis in the interests of national and international monopoly houses like Vedanta, the Tatas, the Jindals and Salim Group who want to exploit mineral and human resources at extremely cheap rates without caring for ecological preservation. Violence and massive evacuation comprise the methodology.
2.      The Supply lines were almost inoperative and bus services remained stopped for 212 out of 365 days after 8 November 2008. The economy of that area was became completely standstill. In this regard the Ananda Bazar Patrika carried a vivid description of economic collapse in a two-part after-edit piece (16-17 February 2010).If one tally-marks the days of stoppage of bus services and divides them between pre- and post-13 June 2009 periods, one will find that the incidents were much higher in the post-13 June months.
3. The cruel assassination of  Lalmohan Tudu, president, Pulisi Santrasbirodhi Janaganer committee (PSJC:People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities). Doctors who did the autopsy of Tudu’s body in the morgue, found that five bullets hit Tudu from close range. The police and the CPI(M)’s Ganashakti gave the same version that he was killed in an encounter. This unholy bonhomie is no new. The DGP Bhupinder Singh at a press conference after the arrest of PSJC convenor Chhatradhar Mahato said Mahato has Rs 1.5 crore in banks. Ganashakti front-paged the statement which was subsequently proved to be a lie.
4. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Chidambaram argued that the joint operations by central and state police and para-military forces were on for restoration of law and order in order to embark on people-oriented developmental activities. Eminent advocate of the High Court of Calcutta Partha Sengupta responded sarcastically at a seminar last year. “There was no law and order problem in the last 60 years. Why developmental activities were not done in 60 years?”
It’s a clear cut and prominent shift “towards a more destructive phase, marked by increased militarization, worldwide recession and increased economic inequality” We had seen this openly in Jangalmahal areas. But this has been going on in Orissa, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand. Rudiments of this were manifest at Nandigram and Singur.

Instead of militarization, In Jangal Mahal
people saw CPI(M) – please read false Marxist-
innovative of storm troopers – or the harmad
vahini.
When the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh described the Maoists as `greatest’ internal security threat - parroted by his comradely ( in terms of subservience to Fund-Bank model-building in the South) colleague, minister of home affairs P Chidambaram, most of the people missed to note how globalization can “necessarily alter national security, both in its definition as well as how it is pursued, and, finally, the future of globalization”.
In this regard the newly elected CM Ms. Mamata Benerjee expressed her deep concern and given ultimatum to the people of Jangalmahal willingly to take part in the peace process and sit for a dialogue for future upliftment and to come back to the main stream.
The following schemes are already being announced by her Government in regard to development in Jangalmahal:
·       Employment Bank, which will provide jobs under various government schemes, process on since September 9 for recruiting 5,000 junior constables and as many National Volunteer Force volunteers in Jungalmahal, and applications would be accepted up to November 18.
·       Eligible candidates left over from the recruitment drive will be considered by the employment bank.
·       Foundation stone for a Rs 170 crore bridge over Subarnarekha river connecting Nayagram and Gopiballavpur laid.
·       Projects covering infrastructure development, health, education and agriculture.
·       Road connectivity in all 84 mouzas in West Midnapore district.
·       Jhargram stadium will be renovated at a cost of Rs 2.3 crore.
·       Two stadiums at Salboni and Nayagram will be built at a cost of Rs 8 crore.
·       Gymnasiums at Belpahari and Gopiballavpur.
·       Rs 14 crore to build a polytechnic college at Ramgarh.
·       Block Development Officers to oversee the affairs of panchayats that have not been functioning properly.
·       120 more seats at Jhargram Raj College
·       Model schools at Nayagram and Gopiballavpur.
·       5 Crore to WBTDC to purchase Kendu leaves fro farmers.
·       Kisan Mandis in each block
·       15 crore for minor irrigation projects.
·       5649 houses for poor
·       Portable water in Pirkata, Salboni and Khasjungal.
She is very much keen and honest for the immediate upliftment of the inhabitants of these areas those who are only kept under malnutrition, illiteracy and unemployment years after years to fulfill the CPIM czars own vested interests at the cost of innocent Adivasis life of this region. The area is rich in mineral wealth even as it holds a tremendous potential to emerge as a tourist hub.
Ms. Banerjee also expressed her concern over the growing terrorism by the so-called Maoists in the area said that her main concern was people... She also warned  those heinous barbarians  that the day is not far when the people will react in a bigger way and I can tell you the consequences will not be pleasant for you, I have faith in the common man`.
I would like to mention ‘When we able to  united against the Left Front and brought `paribartan` (change) then why can’t we all take the initiative to help the area to get rid of these cowards who prefer to come out in the dark with face covered and indulge in killings. I know the people of Jangalmahal will also able to unite against the terror in the area` and will good bye to the politics of bloodshed at any means.
Can you remember Bob Dylan’s song A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall? It was one of his longest songs, composed in 1963, after the assassination of US President J F Kennedy. Some lines apply to the pathos, scripted by the IMF, World Bank and WTO.
“Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten,
  Where black is the colour, where none is the number”
  Did Bob read Red Oleander, English version of Rabindranath Tagore’s Raktakarabee ?
Ms. Banerjee is also determined to once again bring back the serene beauty of this place as once the great Bengali poet Jibananada Das wrote “Ruposhi Bangla” depicting the beauty and feel of this place.
May our hope along with our beloved Didi become true, the Harmads and CPIM czars get severe punishment and the deprived people get justice.
