Tough task ahead for Odisha govt to take possession of Posco land 6.4.2017 All Economy & Policy Stories
Even as the exit of Posco from Odisha has thrown up questions about the use of the land acquired for the steel project of the company, the intent of the state government to bring it under a land pool for forward transfer to another industry is likely to face with fresh round of resistance from anti-industry lobby in the area. Posco Pratirodh Sangram Samiti (PPSS), which spearheaded the agitation against land acquisition for the Posco project for over a decade, has vowed to resist any attempt of the government to allot the land to any industrial house. "We will resist the move by the government to hand over the land to another company after Posco's exit. As was the case in Singur, let the Odisha government should return the land to the villagers who were drawing their sustenance from paddy and betel leaf cultivation and fish ponds on the designated site, before it was snatched away from them for the Posco project", said Abhay Sahu, PPSS leader. But unlike Singur, the 2700 acres land ...

Mamata Banerjee walks into school textbook via Singur 21.2.2017 DNA: India
Mamata Banerjee is making sure no one forgets her, especially school students. In a revised edition of Class VIII history textbooks, the exploits of the West Bengal Chief Minister has been made mandatory reading for students, as the Singur movement has now been added to the syllabus. Entitled Otit O Oitijhho (Past and Heritage), the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education added a chapter on popular people's movements and the Singur movement figures with the Telangana, the Narmada Bachao and Silent Valley movements. While the Telangana movement is given just two pages and the Narmada Bachao and Silent Valley movements are wrapped up in five lines each, the Singur movement gets seven pages, filled with pictures of Mamata and other leaders during this time. That's not all. A large timeline at the end shows just how Mamata and other leaders initiated the movement in 2006 and emerged "victorious" in 2016 following a Supreme Court verdict. While educationists argue that the prominence given to the ruling ...
