Statesman News Service SILIGURI, April 30: The Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP) today alleged that the Darjeeling district CPI-M was deliberately twisting facts over the issue of Gorkha Janmukti Morcha’s rally in Siliguri. “The CPI-M district leadership is confusing people over the issue, giving incorrect information in regard to RSP’s avowed stand regarding the controversy,” the RSP Darjeeling district leadership said.The CPI-M state committee member from Siliguri Mr Jibesh Sarkar said yesterday that the RSP had thrown its full weight behind the state administration’s decision of not giving permission to the proposed GJMM rally in Siliguri at the district Left Front meeting on 27 April. Criticising the CPI-M for misrepresentation of facts, Mr Bikash Sen Roy, a district committee member of the RSP, said today that the GJMM Siliguri rally issue had not been discussed at all at the last Darjeeling district Left Front meeting. “The issue was not on the meeting agenda and so the question of the RSP’s supporting the state administration in the matter does not arise,” the RSP leader said. “I was present at the meeting and the agenda centred around the proposed Left Front programme of Human Chain on May Day. I was astonished to see the statement of Mr Jibesh Sarkar in the newspaper saying that the RSP had supported the state administration in this controversial matter,” Mr Sen Roy added. Meanwhile, Mr Binay Chakravarty, the state committee member of the RSP said today that the CPI-M was quickly becoming isolated over the issue and is twisting the facts.
