Whitewashing the pogrom

11 killed in Nandigram police firing

This report stinks. 11 unarmed villagers have been killed mercilessly by the police on orders from the CPI(M) government. The Chindu tries to blame the villagers, opposition, blue skies, America, policemen - anybody but the CPI(M) government.

While almost all the newspapers claimed that the villagers protested against the CPI(M) government policies, The Chindu makes some outrageous suggestions that it was a politically motivated attack with the villagers having nothing to do with the government policies. It completely sidesteps the issue why the policemen had to fire live rounds at the public.

Contrast this article with what the TOI report and it is evident what the CBCNN is attempting.

Yes, the Chindu is justifying a pogrom against innocent people. It's time somebody put the fear of God into this callous rag's management team.

and it will be interesting to see what they have to say abt the chhatisgarh massacre of policemen. probably the policemen drank capitalist wine and shot themselves.
