Fifth note of musical scale.  Bengal: BJP’s protest march against tribal land acquisition

Birbhum (West Bengal) : The West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday took out a protest march in Birbhum demanding the withdrawal of the Deucha Pachmi coal mining project. The protest was led by Suvendu Adhikari, Leader of the Opposition in the West Bengal Assembly, and Sukanta Majumdar, the state chief of the BJP. People of tribal society also participated in the rally. Suvendu Adhikari said, “Forcible land acquisition especially of tribals is illegal. As per the Act passed by the Parliament in 2006, there cannot be forced land acquisition. Even West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee cannot acquire land forcibly.

Sukanta Majumdar said, “We are against the way Mamata Banerjee is forcibly snatching people’s houses and taking contracts to sell tribal lands to some traders. We will not let them succeed at any cost. She will never succeed. The tribals have been protesting for over three months against the alleged “forced land acquisition” by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government for the Deucha Pachmi coal project in Birbhum district. Let us inform that the Central Government led by Prime Minister Modi had allotted Devcha Pachmi Harinsingh Dewanganj coal block to West Bengal in 2018. Which is the largest coal block allocation in India and the second largest in the world.
