RANCHI : Jharkhand CM Arjun Mundas office is piling up with letters demanding withdrawal of the chargesheet filed by the police against CPI(ML) general secretary Dipankar Bhattacharya on various charges, including attempt to murder. The letters have been written by eminent personalities including The Indian Express former editor Kuldip Nayyar, Delhi High Court former Chief Justice Rajendra Sacchar and CPI general secretary A.B.Bardhan. In fact, Bhattacharyas case dates back to March 1, 2001 when the state Assembly was in session.
The session was taking place after the district witnessed two separate instances of police firing resulting in the four deaths. The CPI(ML) cadre led by Bhattacharya had organised a massive demonstration outside the Assembly to protest against the killings. According to the chargesheet,about 1,000 demonstrators led by Bhattacharya indulged in violence. They started using force against the civil and police officials... (they) also began to hurl bricks and stones on the jawans and even beat them up. The RAF personnel were ordered to fire tear-gas shells and after police resorted to mild lathi-charge, the order was restored.— ENS

Apparently Arjun Munda uses e-software to scan all the mails he gets
"It is difficult for the chief minister to go through each letter. Now through the e-software each letter will be scanned and put on the computer. And the theme of the letter will be mentioned so that the chief minister can read it," said an official of the CMO.
"The chief minister will now be able to reply to the letters he wants to." The software is aimed at sending replies within 24-48 hours of receiving the letters by post.
Lets put the software to test...
