Singur land ordinance unconstitutional, illegal: CPI-MJune 10th, 2011 - 12:50 am ICT by IANS
Kolkata, June 9 (IANS) The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) Thursday termed as “unconstitutional” and “illegal” the West Bengal government’s ordinance for returning 400 acres of land at Singur to farmers.
“It is unconstitutional and illegal. It is dangerous for parliamentary democracy. No ordinance can be brought when the assembly is in session,” said Biman Bose, politburo member of the CPI-M and secretary of its state unit.
The state government Thursday promulgated an ordinance to acquire 400 acres of land at Singur to return it to the farmers, from whom it was taken “against their will” by the previous Left Front regime for the Tata Motors’ Nano small car project.
