Written by: Staff

Kolkata, Nov 22 (UNI) Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee today said her party was not against industrialisation or the industrialists, but "against the state government's looting the land in the name of industrialisation".

She also announced that the battle to stop the Singur land acquisition will continue and they will organsie a rally ''Assembly Chalo'' on November 29 to protest the forcible eviction.

'' In West bengal the department for looting land is only functioning. I have seen CPI(M) is using their cadres to forcibly evict the land. If that happens our struggle will lead to Delhi, '' she exorted in stern words.

'' Enough is enough. Land cannot be looted from people by just planting a red flag, '' she warned.

'' We are not against industrialisation. That can be done in any non-agricultiral land. The government is lying. It is not the fault of the industrialists. It's the State government who are whimsically identifying agricultural land for industrialisation, '' she said.

Then showing certain papers she claimed that in Bhangur the government had issued fresh notices to acquire agricultural land and more moujas again.

Ms Banerjee also said she was against setting up of nuclear power project at East Midnapore which is identified by the state government.

She claimed that she was not against the setting up of such plant, but argued that the government should identify an isolated place rathar than a populated village like Haripur, she said.
