Talking Unbelievable Communists: Now, Bengal IT hub runs into farmers' roadblock

Unbelievable Communists: Now, West Bengal IT hub runs into farmers' roadblock

Should we laugh or should we cry? This clearly shows the good-for-nothing Bengali mentality - deeply Communists and completely out of touch with reality.

Now, Bengal IT hub runs into farmers' roadblock
21 Oct 2008, 0254 hrs IST, Suman Chakraborti & Sumali Moitra, TNN


KOLKATA: Days after Ratan Tata shifted his Nano car plant from Singur to Sanand in Gujarat, Kolkata's biggest IT project slated to come up on a 332-acre plot in Rajarhat has hit a roadblock.

Many farmers at Rajarhat's Jagadishpur the site identified for the Rs 1,500-crore IT project have refused to give their land for the venture saying they have been shortchanged by the government.

"The state bought land from villagers for Rs 4,000 to Rs 5,000 per cottah and is now selling it for Rs 1 to 2 lakh. They acquired land for industrialization and are setting up housing projects," said one farmer, with others nodding in agreement.

The project was to be developed by Forum-ETA, a consortium of Rahul Saraf's Forum Projects and Dubai-based Emirates Trading Agency. The firm is now worried that the project might lose its viability because of the delay.

"We submitted the first instalment of Rs 160 crore to the government more than a year back as part of the tender condition. The consortium is apprehensive of recurrence of a Singur-type agitation at Jagadishpur which would put a question mark on the project," a Forum-ETA source said.

"It would be most unfortunate if the project doesn't go through because, as part of the agreement with the government, Forum-ETA was supposed to return 160 acres to Webel after it had developed the land. Webel could have used this developed land to attract major IT firms from within India as well as abroad by offering them plots at attractive prices," the source added.

On September 12, the North 24-Parganas district collector office had issued a notification, indicating that it would start acquiring 97.78 acres of land at Rajarhat's Jagadishpur mouza for the proposed IT hub.

The notification mentioned objections against the acquisition should be sent to the district collector. "Most of the 3,000-odd farmers in Jagdishpur have agriculture as their only means of livelihood. The entire tract that the government plans to acquire is multi-crop and very fertile. We don't know why it wants to grab this fertile land, when there are thousands of acres of barren land elsewhere," said Durga Das Bagui, a retired headmaster.

"We'll not give our land at any cost. We have already submitted our objection letters to the DM and the land reforms department," said local gram panchayat member Moksed Ali Mandal.

"The people of West Bengal have a long political tradition. They will not take any lesson from Tata in this respect."

Thumbs up Re: Unbelievable Communists: Now, Bengal IT hub runs into farmers' roadblock

The most sensible statement, maybe ever made, by the Communist CPI party of West Bengal

Quote:
Bengalis should now relocate Mamata: Yechury

New Delhi, October 17: Attacking Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee for her "opposition" to Nano project, senior CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury said West Bengal has been deprived of industrialisation and people will assess her politics.

"If Mamata Banerjee has succeeded in relocating Nano project from Bengal, people of Bengal should consider relocating her," Yechury told reporters in New Delhi.

He claimed that people of the state have been deprived of proper industrialisation and that youths of Bengal were denied of potential jobs due to relocation of the Nano project.

"All this goes to the sort of politics that the Trinamool Congress and its leader are playing. We have also appealed to people to look into it," he said.

Now I have doubts about the much touted 'exploitation' of these Bengali farmers by the British during the 'Raaj'!
