Lambasting on the Railways for not naming the Maoists in the FIR lodged for the Rajdhani Express hijack drama on October 27, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacherjee has alleged that Trinamool Congress was in cahoots with Naxals in a bid to dislodge the Left Front government.
“The CRPF named the Maoists and the group backed by it in the FIR. Why not the Railways? It is ridiculous that the Railways have said that they did not know who did it,” Bhattacharjee told a Left Front rally in Kolkata.
Without naming Railway Minister and Trinamool Congress Chief Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister said that Chhatradhar Mahato’s outfit PCPA, which is a creation of the Maoists, detained the Rajdhani, but the names of the outfit did not figure in the Railways FIR.
He charged that the Railways were trying to guard the Maoists and the group supported by them.
