The ghost of Nandigram

The 24X7 media ensures that every incident gets over covered and the private media was in cloud nine when the left parties were cornered in the nandigram incident.The media got so over board that it in the process killed the broad principles on which Indian journalism stands on.There was even comparisons with the genocide that took place in Gujarat.To make things clear Nandigram incident was an attempt to capture territory.It all started with the West Bengal government announcing its plan to setup a chemical hub in Nandigram and the haldia authority unilaterally issued a notice regarding land for the project.Rumors were wild that land will be confiscated,mousques will be destroyed,no compensations will be paid and what not.The location of the chemical hub was selected as nandigram only after the legislature committee containing all political parties found it apt.Now there was an opportunistic alliance under the banner of BUPC containing forces from far-left to far-right.The house of the left sympathizers were looted,burnt,the panchayat office was set ablaze,the panchayat chairman a woman was abused and attacked.This all happened when the panchayat was discussing about the health care achievements of Nandigram.Twenty seven left sympathizers were killed mostly those who were willing to give land for the project.3500 people of Nandigram mostly left sympathizers were driven out of their homes and lived for eleven months in camps.Now what was the need of a movement when the chief minister himself has clarifies that there will be no project if the people does not wish it.Now there was no administration,no police in Nandigram for eleven months.The government wanted a political solution called for an all party meeting innumerable times which the opposition trianamool congress rejected what was the government expected to do.What about the plight of the people in the camps.

Amidst all this the private media channel CNN-IBN showed a clipping of a man shooting a person who’s identity no one is sure of.It comes to conclusion that it was a left worker who is a shooting.It comes up with a poll that “Is the cpi(m) hand in blood?”.The very next day the person who recorded that video(a freelance journalist) clarifies that he is not sure of that identity and circumstantial evidence shows that it was actually a BUPC worker.

Now think of a political party in J&K having an alliance with the Mujahetheens for political mileage.This is simillar to the trinamool having alliance with the maoists.It is a grave situation and the consequence of the mistake would be a threat to the nation.
