CPI (M) condemns ransacking of state party office and brutal lathi charge on protesting SFI activists



    State unit of Communist Party of India (Marxist) today condemned the brutal lathi charge on protesting students at Vidhan Sabha chowk which was followed by an attack on CPI (M) office.

    Addressing the media persons here today Mr Sanjay Chauhan, Deputy Mayor of Shimla and other senior leader alleged that the leaders were dragged and given harsh beating inside the office and were then taken to police station at Boileauganj.

    Even there they were not spared and each one of them was separately beaten up in a room while the lights were switched off. Such an attack proves the violation of democratic norms and sheer despotic administration under the Virbhadra government.

    It is hard to believe that the police who was armed with all forms of anti-riot equipments was not just scaring the unprovoked students protest but was mercilessly beating then up, chasing them as if they were fighting the battle on war front. Even girl students were not spared and were badly beaten up, outraging their modesty.

    The CPI (M) has asked for a judicial probe by the sitting judge of High Court in to the whole incident, especially the attack on the State Head Quarter of the CPI (M), where the main door was broken, the furniture was smashed off and the office staff including 62 yrs old, heart patient Mr Ramakant Mishra (Treasurer-cum-office Secretary) was ruthlessly beaten up. Similarly Sivadasan, India President of SFI too was dragged out and given severe beating.

    Such an attack on a political party office did not even happen in emergency days, and this shows the intolerance and undemocratic behavior of Virbhadra government towards any voice of dissent.

    The party has already given an application at Boileauganj police station against the police officials who entered in the CPI (M) office that includes DSP Shimla Ram Lal Bansal, Inspector Biri Singh Inspector and ASP Shiv Kumar.

    Virbhadra government has shown this kind of attitude towards democratic protest over a long period of time. The people of state are not going to tolerate a government that does not respect democratic norms in its functioning and stand up against the authoritarian government. In this regard today a militant protests by the party was held throughout the state.
