Petition demanding resignation of Buddhadev Bhattacharjee (Chief minister of West Bengal)

Dear Friends,

Please check the petition "Demand Resignation of Buddhadev Bhattacharjee" live online at The URL for the petition is:

The petition statement says:


We are writing to express our strongest condemnation of the brutal and planned murder of peasants in Nandigram by the police on 14th March, 2007.

From all available reports it is clear that an advance decision had been taken to shoot to kill, which alone can explain why so many people were shot well above the regulation below-the-knee height. From your press note and subsequent statements, from the statements of several non-CPI(M)member parties of the Left Front, as well as from news reports it is evident that the responsibility for this murderous action belongs primarily to Sri Buddhadev Bhattacharjee,. In this situation, we believe that the minimum that has to be done now is to compel Sri Bhattacharjee to resign. We therefore demand his resignation. There can be no democratic dialogue or any peaceful resolution of the current situation as long as he is at the helm of affairs.

I request you to sign the petition and to circulate it.


Dr. Soma Marik/Dr. Kunal Chattopadhyay
