Nandigram, Dec 26 (ANI): The Left Front Chairman, Biman Bose, on Wednesday said that the Left parties would soon meet to resolve their differences over various issues, including Nandigram and the All India Forward Bloc (AIFB) concerns.
“After Communist Party of India-Marxists (CPI-M) ongoing district conferences, I will talk to the left allies to sort out differences with our party,” Bose told a party rally here.
He also said “we have to maintain unity of the people” to keep the development work going on in the area.
Meanwhile, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee has asked the Haldia District Administration to treat cadres of the Left party and Trinamool Congress volunteers on par, while giving relief packages to those who were affected in clashes over a proposed Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in Nandigram.
“It is the administration and common people’s responsibility to re-establish faith among the villagers,” Buddhadeb said.
He also announced a relief package to 10 million rupees for Nandigram.
The Chief Minister appealed to the Bhumi Uchched Pratirodh Committee (BUPC) to dissolve differences, adding, ‘On March 14 police was sent to reconstruct those roads and bridges. I would have never sent police if I knew police would be needed to open fire to enter.’
The State Government had planned to set up a SEZ for chemical industries in Nandigram, but had to abort the project as villagers refused to give up their farmland for the project.
The row saw violent clashes between residents opposed to the project and the communist supporters as well as police. (ANI)
