GUWAHATI, Feb 7 � Peasant organisation Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) lashed out at the Chief Minister for his reported written statement in the recent New Delhi conference of the Chief Ministers that the peasant organisation is maintaining links with the Maoists.
In a statement, the peasant organisation stated that the Chief Minister and his colleagues are desperate to come to power for the third time consecutively and for the purpose they are frantically trying to use every trick to woo the voters. But they are apprehensive that with the KMSS remaining vocal on the issues involving corruption and large dams, this dream of theirs is not going to materialise.
This has made it a compulsion for the Chief Minister and his associates to malign the KMSS and its struggle as Maoists, said the peasant organisation.
The statement further added that the latest exposure of the KMSS concerning the alleged US property of the Chief Minister and its assertions on the NC Hills Autonomous Council scam have forced the Chief Minister and his associates to misuse the official power for projecting the peasant organisation and its struggle in the wrong manner.
Earlier also, the State Government tried to dub KMSS secretary Akhil Gogoi and MLA Bhuban Pegu as Maoists to destroy their struggle against corruption in the high offices of the Government and large dams, the statement added.
But the KMSS is determined to resist the designs of the big capitalists to plunder the water resources of the NE region. It is resolute in its decision to carry forward its struggle against large dams and corruption come what may. The designs of the Tarun Gogoi-led Government to dub this struggle as ULFA or Maoist uprising is not going to deter the KMSS from upholding the cause of the NE people, said the peasant organisation.
