Mukherjee seeks written reply from Mamata on Lalgarh speech

New Delhi , Fri, 13 Aug 2010 ANI

New Delhi, Aug 13 (ANI): Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Friday sought a written reply from Railway Minister and Trinamool Chief Mamata Banerjee on her pro-Maoist remarks at a rally in Lalgarh, West Bengal.


Banerjee has been asked to explain in detail what she said there and why.


The latest move from the government confirms its discomfort with the stand taken by a member of the Union Cabinet.


Earlier, Home Minister P Chidambaram had said the government would certainly not encourage anyone to support the Maoists.


On being asked if the government would take action against those who support the anti-democratic movement in Naxal areas, Chidambaram said: "To a question that is framed in such a general manner, the answer can also be in a general manner. No one should support the Maoists and the government would certainly not encourage anyone to support the Maoists."


Chidambaram later rejected Mamata's demand for an inquiry into the encounter killing of Maoist leader Cherukuri Rajkumar, alias Azad.


Addressing a public rally in Lalgarh on Monday, Banerjee had said that the way Azad was killed was not right and asked for a probe into his death.


"I feel the way Azad was killed is not correct. Swami Agnivesh had made him agree to hold talks (with the government). What happened was not correct. I feel the process (for holding talks with the Maoists) should start," she added.


Azad was killed by Andhra Pradesh Police in the Jogapur forest area at Adilabad District on July 2. (ANI)
