RATAN TATA THREATENS TO PULL OUT NANO FROM SINGUR
TATA, BYE BYE
By Manuwant Choudhary
TATA Boss Ratan Tata threatens to pull out his rupees one lakh Nano car factory from West Bengal if the protests continue.
Unusually, Mr. Tata attempted to make a moral case for himself although he said he did not want to score points.
"Its the governments job to govern and our job is to manufacture cars, and we believe that the land acquired by the government was acquired legally."
Surely, Mr. Tata like other members of the industry do not believe in the right to property and support the governments land acquisition laws which force farmers to move out from their lands.
If I was at the presser I would ask Mr. Tata whether it would be right for a government to suddenly declare Jamshedpur as a farming zone and forcibly take it away from the Tata's (of course, Jamshedpur is also just a lease, not the private property of the Tata's.)
So what the Tata's are doing in collusion with Bengal's Communist government is driving people away from their traditional profession FARMING and that is what they want to do. ITS THEIR HOME.
They do not want to be security guards in a car factory. Mr. Tata.
