IIMS Discussion on Lalgarh

The Karnataka unit of IIMS held a discussion on Lalgarh at Mysore, chaired by Dr. Laxminarayana. Various democratic and radical organisations and individuals participated in the discussion. The Planning Commission document on a ‘Report of an Expert Group on Development Challenges to Extremist-affected areas’ was presented by N Divakar and its implications discussed, while Dr. Laxminarayana led the discussion on the Lalgarh struggle of adivasi people against state repression. In spite of criticism of the tactics of the Maoists, the ban on Maoists was held to be a pretext for crushing of people’s struggles, and the meeting extended solidarity to the fighting people of Lalgarh.
