MAMATA BANERJEE - A BENGAL TIGRESS
SINGUR SOLUTION IS REALLY ABOUT ENFORCING PROPERTY RIGHTS
By Manuwant Choudhary
The farmers of Singur alongwith Mamata Banerjee have achieved in Communist West Bengal something that cannot be done in socilaist India, where there is no property rights.
LAND FOR LAND is about property rights.
Mamata Banerjee has shown the way that force cannot be allowed in India..that land cannot be taken away by law or by anyone against the wishes of the people.
Its an irony that the capitalist Tata is on the side of the communists while the naxals are on the side of the property holders.
Thanks to the intervention West Bengal Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi Singur has been solved, but doing what Mamata did in Bengal for every land acquisition is the real challenge.
Ultimately, property rights must be re-introduced in our fundamental rights and the fundamental rights must be sacrosanct.
Thats the challenge for liberals.
It does not matter whether Nano costs Rs.1 lakh or more or whether production starts in October or not.
Without property rights, for all who love freedom Nano would be a Na and No...
