Mamata budges after Governor’s intervention

At the intervention of West Bengal Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi, Trinamool Congress Chief Mamata Banerjee on Sunday i.e. 31 Aug 2008, budged from her inflexible stand and agreed to come to the talks table. Following Governor’s letter to Mamata, a Krishi Jami Raksha Committee (KJRC) team met the Governor on Sunday. Shortly afterwards, Mamata announced in Singur she was ready for talks. But Trinamool Chief stuck to her stand that land must be returned to unwilling farmers, but hinted that that the figure of 400 acres was not NON-Negotiable. Mamata also promised that the panchayats in Singur, which is under Trinamool, would help find alternative land for the ancillary units opposite the Tata Motors factory site. When KJRC delegation led by opposition leader Partha Chatterjee met the Governor, he suggested that talks start with the help of a “neutral intermediary” and that farmers who had lost land could also participate in the talks.

The Governor’s intervention has given the Trinamool leader the opportunity she had been looking for to come to an honorable settlement. A relieved state government gave indications the talks could start forthwith. Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya said at public meeting in Netaji Indoor Stadium that he was ready to hold talks with the opposition. At a meeting of Left Front it was decided an all party meeting would be convened on Tuesday.

Talk about a bummer…an illiterate wicked woman putting the states economy to ransom.

as another leading automotive manufacturer ( who some have been insituating as the ‘money bag’ behind Mamata and her Singur agitation ) put it very aptly on TV the other day – people are losing their objectivity. Now it is either that – if you are pro-Tata then you must be anti-Mamata or vice-versa. He asked why is it necessary to be 100% with one or the other. There can be a position somewhere in-between.

in trying to play a dangerous game of brinkmanship – all 3 sides ( the CPM, Tatas and Mamata) have terribly over-played their hands (cards). In all this the CPM has come out looking the most pitiable.

it’s a sorry site to see the CM and his Industries Minister – who have always protested against the Governor exceeding his Consitutional authority and interfering in executive or political matters – tamely joining the queue at the Raj Bhavan seeking a ‘Gandhian Solution” ( read “mediation” ) to resolve a crisis.

this is what i would call eating the ‘humble pie’. and, for some others – next time round they should think twice before making a dig about a politician at a product launch.

would love to know your comments..

Two years back, the CPI (M)-led government in West Bengal acquired 1,000 acres of extremely fertile multi-crop agricultural land by evicting the peasants at gunpoint rending thousands homeless and landless. This was to set up a highly sophisticated capital-intensive automobile industry by TATAs.

Singur KrishiJami Raksha Committee (SKJRC) (Committee for ProtectingAgricultural land in Singur) was formed to fight this forced acquisition of land. Trinamool Congress (TMC) and SUCI (a communist party) are important constituents of SKJRC.

The CPI (M) led government did not hesitate to let loose its armed police on the agitating peasants to orchestrate one of the most brutal lethal attacks on legitimate democratic movement of these peasants. Raj Kumar Bhul, a protesting youth was killed; peasants were dragged out of their houses to be mercilessly beaten and maimed, Tapasi Malik, a young adolescent activist was brutally raped and burnt alive plan fully by ruling party-backed criminals. Modesty of the women was outraged. Many have starved to death. The whole country burst into protest. Leading intellectuals and thinking personalities called this savagery unprecedented.

Similar incident at Nandigram in West Bengal backfired on CPI(M).
Nandigram peasants braving all odds courageously stood up and foiled the scheme of the government to set up a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in keeping with the prescripts of capitalist globalization. Singur-Nandigram have become legends in the annuls of democratic mass movement providing spunk and determination to the fighting people in other parts of the country to rise in protest against such forcible land grab or any other injustice. The local elections after this saw CPI(M) wiped out in these areas.

The Singur peasants are now voicing demand for return of 400 acres of land belonging to the unwilling owners who have refused to receive compensation cheque. It may be added that the Tatas themselves in a letter written to Mamata Banerjee, the TMC leader said that the proposed automobile plant would need only 600 acres of land. So there is every legitimacy in claiming back the said 400 odd acres of land.

Mamata Bannejee is a bastard … she is illiterate … arrogant … and a whore … who sucks herself and is sucking my land out of its opportunities … she is filthy … and should be dragged along the strees of kolkata naked …
