CPI Strongly Decries Murderous Attempts on Govind Pansare, Uma Pansare
The Central Secretariat of the Communist Party of India (CPI) has issued the following statement today condemning the cruel and wanton attempts to kill Comrades Govind Pansare and his wife Uma Pansare.
The Central Secretariat of the Communist Party of India strongly condemns the murderous moves of the communal forces helped by other vested interests against Comrade Govind Pansare, Secretary of the CPI Central Control Commission and former secretary of the Maharashtra State Council of CPI and his wife Uma Pansare, a leader of women’s movement, hoping to stifle the democratic, progressive and saner voices. The party warns these forces to desist from such murderous attacks or face the consequences. They were shot at when both were on their usual morning stroll in their home town of Kolhapur. The 83-year old Govind Pansare hit by bullets in his chest and neck is still not out of danger and is struggling for his life in a Kolhapur hospital.
Comrade Govind Pansare was under threat from the communal divisive forces over his latest move to organize a discussion meeting of a book on the slain chief of Mahrashtra state anti-terror squad Hemant Karkare: ‘Who killed Hemant Karkare?’ It may be recalled here that in late October 2008, the ATS arrested eleven suspects, all alleged Hindu terrorists, including a VHP leader Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, Swami Amritananda alias Dayanand Pandey, a retired Major Ramesh Upadhyay and a serving Army officer Lt Col Prasad Shrikant Purohit. The anti Karkare forces had warned Com Pansare of dire consequences if he would hold the widely publicised function for the discussion of the book and now it is clear that these forces had stooped down to such level of inhuman act when the function turned out to be a grand function.
Com Govind Pansare in his six decades of active political life has led the struggles of farmers, sugar cane growers and for the trade union rights of workers. He is a prolific writer on contemporary issues and has fought for the cause of dalits, backward and marginalized sections of society. He has also authored more than two dozen popular books. Also Com Pansare a prominent highly acclaimed figure in the state had been leading an agitation against Toll tax. A prominent advocate himself, he had also carved out a special place among the members of the legal fraternity with his commitment and deep grasp of the Indian situation. The interests of profit along with communal forces are out to wipe out pro-people saner elements from Indian soil. Rationalism, scientific temper, inclusive growth and the exploited masses at larges will finally win and no force on earth will be able to stifle them.
