'Trinamool helped Maoists'
Kolkata: Singer-turned-Trinamool Congress MP Kabir Suman has claimed in his recent book that the Trinamool and Maoists were hand in glove during the Nandigram land agitation in 2007.
In his just released book, Nishaner Naam Tapasi Malik (Tapasi Malik - An Emblem), Suman writes that Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee and other party leaders held a meeting with pro-Maoist leaders Prasun Chattopadhyay and Raja Sarkhel in 2007.
"On November 6, 2007 a meeting of Krishi Jomi Raksha Committee was held at the Trinamool headquarters Trinamool Bhavan after fresh violence erupted at Nandigram. The onslaught and violence was perpetuated by CPI-M," he writes.
