Mamata to take to the streets over Nandigram violenceNovember 14th, 2007 - 8:37 am ICT by admin
”I can’t tell you the form of agitation we will launch,” said Mamta.
She added that she would take to the streets till the terror at Nandigram stops.
Mamata also said she would be writing to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, detailing the state of affairs at Nandigram.
She met Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi at Raj Bhavan on Tuesday.
Referring to Home Secretary Prasad Ranjan Roy’s statement that the firing had taken place from the CPI (M) stronghold of Khejuri, she said, “This has clearly vindicated our claim that CPI (M) has mounted an attack on the people of Nandigram.
On Tuesday, two persons were killed and 10 others injured in a fresh bout of violence in Nandigram.
The casualties were victims of a landmine explosion in the area during intermittent exchanges of fire between the members of the Bhoomi Ucched Pratirodh Committee (BUPC).
Earlier, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh expressed concern over Nandigram violence and asked Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil to look into it urgently.
Nandigram has been the scene of recurring clashes since January resulting in deaths, including 14 in police firing and violence on March 14 when villagers resisted the police from entering. (ANI)
