Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Q - THI inHBRITOE HERAID - Wednesday, December 9, 1970 Fierce power struggle in Bombay member of llio provincial log-islalurc, draggwl him out and siwarcd liim to death. More than 20 people have been arrested in this case and the Rombay government lias appointed a siwcial officer to liead the investigations. Willvin days of the Desai slaying a Shiv Sena volunteer was stabbed to death in a busy district. The assailant escaped but Bal Thaclteray, the Fascists' boss, claims the murder was committed by Communists. BUR.AKS UP RALLIES Thackeray, 42, says he is determined to "liquidate" the Communists. He has called upon his followers to break up Red rallies. For the first time in almost 30 years the Indian Communist party Ls deeply worried about losing its hold over Bombay's working class. Shin-pad Dange, its general secre-tar>-, has called . upon the Tly RAM SUNHAR C"I' Corrcsponilcut BOMB.\Y ((CP) - This metropolis of more than five million people is currently wit-nes.sing a fierce struggle fnr power between CommuiiLsts and Fascists. Both the pro-Moscow and pro-Peking wings of the Communist party have joined hands in a rare exhibition of solidarity to give battle to the Shiv Sena, a militant right-wing party listed by the Indian govonuncnt as a Fascist group. The city's industrial districts have been witnessing a scries of violent clashes between the two gi'oups. Sliiv Sena volunteers have raided Communist party offices and beaten up Red workers. The homes of some of the Reds have also been ransacked. On a recent night a gang of young Fascists stormed the house of Krislina Desal, a city's workers to "unite and foil the treacherous game of tl li Fascists who are acting as the agents of Western imperialists." But each passing day throws up fresh evidence that Bal Thackeray is dividing the workers with his fiery eloquence and destructive tactics. A recent Sliiv Sena rally was attended by 50,000 textile workers. The Fascists have also launched a recniitment drive in the city's slum areas. According to one estimate, the Shiv Sena has a volunteer force of more than 20,000 young men and women. In the last elections to the city legislature the Fascists won one-third of the 140 seats. Bal Thackeray says that in the next poll "not a single Red will be returned to Uie legislature." The Commtmists arc particularly alarmed by the fact that Tliackeray has an increasing appeal for youth. Many of the Shiv Sena followers are teen-agers. Police say that even school children take part in Fascist attacks on Red offices. A local political writer estimates that the Reds have lost more than 200,000 out of their million followers in the industrial and slum areas to the Fa.scists. Thackeray argues that his right-wing philosophy a|>peals to workers because it is "modem and pragmatic." "I tell the poor people of Bombay that their salvation will come only when they drive out the Communista who have been exploiting them at the behest of Moscow and Peking," he told a mass rally.
