Led by Amit Shah, UP BJP has launced a vicious communal propaganda against Muslims in UP particularly in the districts of Muzaffarnagar, Shamli, Meerut, Bijnor, Bhaghpat, Saharanpur of West UP. Like in Gujarat in 2002, they are conducting a malicious disinformation campaign with regard to safety of Hindu women to inflame anti muslim passions and to target them. More than 42 people have been accepted by the govt as killed with widespread violence in rural areas. Several thousands have been displaced as they ran to safer places, mostly to relatives in less affected areas. Hundreds of dwellings and shops have been destroyed and looted. It is apparent that majority of the affected people are muslims as it is mainly they who are being discovered displaced.
CPI(ML) ND has condemned the Hundutwa brigade for conduct of the riots and the communal propaganda. Criticizing the failure of the SP administration to stop these riots, it has said that evidence points to Samajwadi Party’s willful and conscious connivance in permitting and aggravating these riots.… Read More
UP Committee of CPI(ML) ND has expressed its deep anguish at the massive loss of innocent lives and property in the communal clashes that have erupted in Muzzafarnagar and adjoining districts and has appealed to the people to maintain restraint. It has severely condemned the continous communal mobilization done by BJP and others in the entire area against muslims since August 27 incident of village Kawal. The callous and inept handling of the inflamatory situation by SP govt shows that the UP govt has actually connived to allow these clashes to take place.
There are very serious doubts about the August 27 incident of alleged eve teasing, a muslim youth being killed and then 2 brothers being lynched. The August 28th incident was first reported as an accident nvolving two motorcycles. The video circulated by BJP MLA Sangeet Som is 2 years old, it took place in a foreign country and has nothing to do with this incident. This is a full replay of the Gujarat game plan carried out by Amit Shah and Narendra Modi in 2002 where throughout Gujarat they made emotive propaganda of “safety of Hindu girls” under attack by muslim boys and unleashed communal attacks on muslims.… Read More

The loss of human life and properties in the Uttarakhand flood/landslide disaster after heavy downpour for 3 days since June 16 is amongst the worst in its history. Call it heavy downpour or cloud burst, the cause of damage was manmade. It has resulted from uncontrolled human interference with nature’s line of defense. With the govt. still understating the casualties, more than 10,000 are feared dead. Consider here that more than 2.5 crore tourists visit Uttarakhand annually whose population is 1.08 crores. As reported, close to a thousand villages still remain cut off with the people battling severe starvation, thirst and injuries. The mud flowing down the river has already silted and closed all the turbines along Bhagirathi and Mandakini save Tehri. The total damage is yet to be assessed.
The Govt’s response and Relief work:
When the landslides began, the govt. kept mum, in denial. Their claim was that only a few hundred have lost their lives and a similar number are untraceable.… Read More

A large portion of the land of the village was owned by Raghunath Singh a landlord of Benaras. In order to evade appropriation of the land by the Govt. under the land ceiling laws the landlord had got a part of the land (plot no 190) recorded in the name of temple deities (Shivji, Ganeshji) although their existed no temple or deities, this being the common practice at that time in Bihar. The physical possession of this plot of land has been in the hands of landless-poor peasant dalit families of the village for over 40 years who have been regularly tilling it. This landlord died childless and various disputes are continuing in the courts among his relatives for inheritance.
On 14 June 2013 at around 9 AM, Sudhakar Singh a BJP leader and son of Jagdanand Singh RJD MP from Buxar and a big feudal of Kaimur District along with a mob of over 100 feudals and their goondas, mainly from other areas and a few from the village, marched to the said plot of land along with 6 tractors and started to forcibly till the land.… Read More
