Tension prevails at Nandigram as CPI(M) threatens BUP committee

Nandigram, Feb 05: Tension prevailed at Nandigram, the scene of proposed special economic zone which had witnessed violence last month, with the CPI-M threatening to teach the Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh committee a lesson.

''They (the Pratirodh Committee) have created terror. Now we will show our strength. And if we demonstrate our strength they will be finished,'' Himanshu Das, a local CPI-M leader and Sabhadhipati of local Panchayet Samity said after a meeting of the Left Front at Khejuri in East Midnapore district.

The committee, however, said that they would not allow the police to enter the villages and repair roads which were dug up, until the West Bengal Government announced officially that it has shelved the plan of land acquisition for the SEZ.

Tension also prevailed in Bartala, Panchuria, Pukuria, Oaselchak villages which had witnessed hurling of bombs allegedly by CPI-M activists.
