Press Release

 

CPI(ML) General Secretary Dipankar Bhattacharya

Arrested while Entering

 

New Delhi, 1 October 2012

 

CPI(ML) General Secretary along with other CPI(ML) leaders was arrested today at Radhapuram, a few kilometers away from Idinthakarai, the site of the protest against the Koodankulam Nuclear Plant. CPI(ML) Politburo member S Kumaraswamy and Tamil Nadu State Secretary Balasundaram and other CPI(ML) leaders of were also arrested along with him.

At Tirunelveli town this morning, local CPI(ML) leaders were detained by police and prevented from proceeding to Idinthakarai. Comrade Dipankar Bhattacharya and his team had proceeded directly to Indinthakarai from Tuticorin airport, but were stopped by a huge posse of police, at a short distance from Idinthakarai.

A Convention organised by the All Left Coordination (AILC) at Mavalankar Hall, yesterday had given a call for a fortnight-long Solidarity Campaign in support of the anti-nuke agitation at Koodankulam, from October 1-15. The CPI(ML) General Secretary’s visit to Koodankulam on October 1 was to kick off the solidarity fortnight. A videotaped message of Koodankulam struggle leader SP Udayakumar was also screened at the AILC Convention yesterday.

After his arrest, Comrade Dipankar Bhattacharya said, “Why are citizens being prevented from meeting and interacting with the protesting people of Koodankulam? Such arrests expose the utterly draconian conduct of the Central and TN State , which are attempting to choke off the people’s protests by sheer force.” Commenting on the Koodankulam struggle, he said, “The names of places like Chernobyl and Fukushima became well-known after terrible nuclear disasters occurred there. But Koodankulam has become known the world over, for the brave agitation to prevent a disaster.”

 

Prabhat Kumar,

For CPI(ML) Central Committee

    வருமுன்னர் காவாதான் வாழ்க்கையைக் கடைப்பிடிக்க வில்லை கூடங்குளம் மக்கள்.சிந்திக்கத் தொடங்கிய இவர்களைக் கண்டு உலகமே வியக்கிறது. இவர்களின் சிந்தனையில் உருவான வினாக்களுக்கு விடை தர அடம் பிடிக்கிறது அரசு. காரணம் அயல்நாட்டு மோகமே அரசுக்கு. கைக்கூலியாக வெளிநாட்டினருக்கு மண்டியிட்டுக் கோழையாக இருக்கும் அரசு எப்படி வல்லரசாகும்? அறிவிலித்தனமானதொரு சிந்தனையை அப்துல் கலாம் விதைத்திருக்கிறார். அடித்தட்டு மக்களின் உணர்வைப் புரியாமல் வானத்தில் பந்தல் போடுகிறார் அப்துல் கலாம்
