Maoists have no link with Trinamool: Kishenji

October 29, 2009 19:00 IST

The Communist Party of India - Maoist on Thursday rubbished charges leveled by the Communist Party of India – Marxist, that the Trinamool Congress was patronising Maoists, saying the Left Front party was trying to keep itself afloat by making such allegations.

"There is no need for us to have the CPI-M or the Trinamool Congress as allies," Maoist leader Kishenji said while reacting to the CPI-M's allegations that the outfit was protected by the TC.

"It is not only Sitaram Yechury. All top CPI-M leaders have lost touch with the people and are trying to create a sensation," Kishneji said.

On the CPI-M's contention that Trinamool leader and Union Minister of State Sisir Adhikari had prior knowledge of the attack on the Delhi-bound Rajdhani Express on October 27 in West Midnapore district, Kishenji claimed that even he was not aware of it.

"I don't know who had prior information about the Rajdhani Express blockade. Even I didn't have any information about it. The tribals blocked the train during a bandh called by them. This is normal," he said.

"When all parties have the democratic right to protest and call bandhs, why not tribals," he asked.
