Hunger-strike by students foiled 

MALDA (West Bengal), Sept. 30: Police today evicted a group of students when they were staging a token hunger-strike under the banner of CPI-ML in front of the district magistrate’s bungalow, demanding rehabilitation of all the erosion victims. 

The students said they had staged hunger-strike in front of the district magistrate’s office building with the permission of the DM. The DM, however, had decided to object it when the Congress councillors sat on hunger-strike over the issue of mosquito menace a few days ago. 

A 60-member team of students belonging to All India Students’ Association, affiliated to CPI (ML), had visited erosion hit areas demanding rehabilitation of all erosion victims’ families a few days ago. 

Mobilising the support of erosion victims at Panchanandapur in Kaliachak II, they had also demanded a CBI inquiry to find out the cause of ‘faulty’ anti-erosion work on the left bank of the Ganga, spending over Rs 35 crore this year. 

They said this is nothing but a wastage of money for a particular class of peoples’ ‘vested interests.’ Thirdly, at the meeting there, they have demanded that registration of lands in the name of erosion victims of West Bengal have been grabbed by the mafias of Jharkhand. 

Speaking to reporters, the state secretary of AISA, Mr Naba Kumar Biswas said: “ We will continue our movement in the interest of the erosion victims not only for the Malda victims but for them who are the erosion victims in Murshidabad, Nadia, and 24 Parganas.” The students should have a role to look after the plight of erosion victims, he said.
