Nandigram a "concentration camp", Patkar
Kolkata, Nov 10 (UNI) Social activist Medha Patkar has dubbed Nandigram ''a concentration camp where the communists have unleashed a reign of terror to recapture lost ground.'' ''With no scope to find a redressal for the grievances, Nandigram is a veritable concentration camp where people are suffering helplessly,'' Ms Patkar told UNI while gearing up for a fresh battle.
She claimed she was assaulted, terrorised and stopped by the CPI(M) for trying to extend a helping hand to Nandigram during her visit there on Thursday.
The Narmada Bachao Andolan leader was stopped and her associates were allegedly brick-batted when they tried to enter the embattled area. ''I was pulled by hair and hurled with choicest invectives by CPI(M) goons, out to regain their lost base launching a violent onslaught'' on the Bhumi Uchched Pratirodh Committee (BUPC), their main opposition,'' Ms Patkar said.
