SUCI-C urges all parties to join Singur farmers’ movementJuly 1st, 2012 - 11:55 pm ICT by IANS
Singur (West Bengal), July 1 (IANS) Advocating Singur farmers’ “right to snatch back their land”, the Socialist Unity Centre of India-Communist (SUCI-C) Sunday urged political parties to join peasants of this rural belt of West Bengal in their fight for justice.
“Getting back their land is the only justice for the farmers of Singur and for that to happen they will have to snatch back the land. They cannot expect to get back the land through legal battles,” said SUCI-C legislator Tarun Naskar, who led a rally in this rural belt of Hooghly district demanding the farmers be given a right to reclaim their land.
“We are with the Krishijami Raksha Committee in its endeavour to get back their land and I urge all the parties to come together and join them,” he added.
Singur is gradually turning into an epicentre of the political theatre following the recent court verdict cancelling the Singur land law as “unconstitutional”.
Political parties hit the roads showing their solidarity with the peasants here whose land was allegedly acquired forcibly by the then Left Front government to set up an industrial unit.
If it was the SUCI-C Sunday, on Saturday the Congress and the Trinamool Congress — allies both at the centre and in the state — separately hit the streets at Singur on the issue of returning land to the “unwilling farmers”.
While the Congress accused its ally of “playing politics at the cost of farmers”, the Trinamool retorted that the Congress was “derailing the government’s initiative” to rehabilitate the farmers.
Meanwhile, the Trinamool Sunday reiterated its promise to return the land to the unwilling farmers.
“The law has been made in the interest of the people; not the other way around. The process has been held up because of some legal hassles, but we are committed to the promise of returning the land,” party general secretary and Railway Minister Mukul Roy said in Kolkata.
