  • Description

    THOUSANDS OF PRO MARXIST STUDENTS DEMONSTRATED IN THE WEST BENGAL LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY ON THURSDAY (5 MARCH) AMID EVER INCREASING INTER PARTY CLASHES AND MOUNTING VIOLENCE IN INDIA'S MAIN INDUSTRIAL STATE. THEY WERE PROTESTING AT WHAT THEY CONSIDER MOVES TO EXCLUDE MARXIST COMMUNISTS FROM A UNITED FRONT GOVERNMENT.

    THE INDIAN HOME MINISTER, YASHWANTRAO CHAVAN RECENTLY SAID THAT LAW ORDER IN THE STATE WAS FAST DETERIORATING. HE ADDED THAT LOCALLY MADE ARMS WERE FREELY USED IN CLASHES WITHIN THE DEEPLY DIVIDED, 14-PARTY COMMUNIST DOMINATED COALITION GOVERNMENT THAT RULES WEST BENGAL.

    MR CHAVAN SAID THAT THE SITUATION WAS A MATTER OF NATIONAL CONCERN BUT ADDED THAT CENTRAL GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION WAS A POLITICAL PROPOSITION WHICH WOULD HAVE TO BE SUPPORTED BY PARLIAMENT.

    THE STUDENTS HAVE THREATENED FURTHER DEMONSTRATIONS IN FACTORIES AND OFFICES IF THE UNITED FRONT CONTINUES TO ATTEMPT TO FORM A GOVERNMENT WITHOUT THE MARXISTS.
