CPM activists spreading tension in Haldia

Haldia, April 7.— Even though the state government has scrapped the proposed mega-chemical hub project at Nandigram following the carnage on 14 March, goons allegedly backed by the CPI-M are continuously spreading tension in the area by hurling bombs at peaceful meetings.

These incidents are frequently reported from the villages along the Talpati canal every night. According to reports, goons allegedly backed by the CPI-M have been trying to create a new corridor to enter the trouble torn areas of Nandigram-I block through Hatingabari, Bahargunge, Simulkundu and Ranichak area in Nandigram-II block.

The villagers of Ranichak village alleged that CPI-M cadres were hurling bombs and firing bullets in the air even in the daytime to scare the villagers from other side of Talpati canal since the last two days. However, a police contingent entered Simulkundu village around noon today to take control of the situation. No violence has occurred at Ranichak area since then.

Mr Partha Chattopadhay and Mr Sisir Adhikari, Trinamul congress leaders visited Nandigram today to inspect the situation and boost up the morale of the party workers who have been leading the anti-land acquisition movement at Nandigram.

Mr Chattopadhay said: " Mr Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee is to be blamed for the tragic situation in Nandigram and Khejuri. Though the chemical hub project has been scrapped, state government does not seem to have taken any initiative to restore normalcy in the area."

Mr Adhikari said: "We shall up the ante if the state government tries again to grab the lands of the farmers in East Midnapore district."
