Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee expressed condolences to family members of six farmers who were killed in alleged police firing in Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday.
“Incident in MP unfortunate. Sad six farmers lost their lives. My deepest sympathies to the bereaved families. We always stand by our farmers,” Mamata tweeted.
Taking after the executing of agriculturists, who were looking for advance waivers in MP, Internet administrations were suspended in Mandsaur, Ratlam and Ujjain because of the challenges.
A legal request has been requested into the episode. Responding to the catastrophe, Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced an ex gratia of Rs 1 crore for the groups of the perished.
TMC insiders asserted that Mamata – who is in Darjeeling – got annoyed when she came to think about the killings.
“She even examined the matter with the gathering pioneers, and wanted to send a group of Trinamool Congress MPs to meet the relatives of perished in Madhya Pradesh,” a source said.
Mamata is extremely touchy towards agriculturists issue on the grounds that through this development in Singur (Hooghly region) and in Nandigram (West Midnapore) she came to control in Bengal.
The fomentation in Singur begun on October 13, 2006, when the CPM state secretariat supported previous boss pastor Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and previous businesses serve Nirupam Sen’s choice to rent out 997 sections of land in Singur to Tata Motors at a concessional rate for Nano extend.
What’s more, the dissent in Nandigram took a ruthless turn after the CPI-M government permitted Indonesian firm – Salim Group – to set up a synthetic center point under the SEZ strategy.
Mamata intensely challenged both the moves and battled for the agriculturists. A few people were executed amid both the disturbances lastly, on August 2008, Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata hauled out of Singur. That year Salim Group additionally chose not to put resources into Nandigram.
These two ranchers’ development gave a solid political mileage to Mamata and on May 20, 2011, she turned into the Chief Minister of West Bengal.
“Now with the farmers’ issue in Madhya Pradesh, our Chief Minister will highlight this issue in her public meetings. She has already raised demonetisation, GST, cattle ban etc. and now farmers issue in BJP ruled states. Our party will always stand for the poor people across the country not only in Bengal,” the insider said.
