Singur case (Singur verdict): CPM govt’s acquisition of land for Tata Motors was illegal, says SC. Big setback for Tata’s & CPM’s but a big win for Mamata Banerjee & TMC plus poor farmers.
Bengal is another victory of Mamata and TMC as, Hon. Supreme Court says “Singur
land acquisition deal for Tata-Nano project was a farce”. It means Mamata
Banerjee was right by saying it was a forceful accusation of land by Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee
The acquisition of
‘fertile multi-crop agricultural land’ by the West Bengal govt in 2006 for Tata
Motor’s Nano car project was against the 1894 Land Acquisition Act, says the
The Supreme Court on
Wednesday quashed the acquisition of 997 acres of land by the CPM-led West
Bengal government in 2006 for Tata Motors’ Nano car project. This announcement
comes as a big set-back for Tata's & CPM’s.
A bench comprising justices V. Gopala Gowda and Arun Mishra
said that the acquisition was illegal and void, and failed to meet the
requirements under the Land Acquisition Act 1894.
The apex court’s judgement comes as a shot in the arm for
Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal, which had brought a law to return
the land to the owners.
The Apex court directed the West Bengal
government to take possession of the land and distribute it to the land owners
within 12 weeks.
It also announced that the farmer's who got
compensation from the government will not return it because they were deprived
of their livelihood for the last ten years.
The SC also said that Tata had
bypassed the rules while acquiring the land.
noted that the entire exercise was done by "bulldozing the law" as the then Cabinet suo motu cleared the allocation of
the land identified by the automobile major which was the task of the
government of the day.
The bench said
it was a farcical exercise through which the land was allocated and it was a"legal mala
may recall that in May 2006, the then CPM government led by Buddhadeb
Bhattacharyya announced that Tata would locate their 'Rs 1 lakh' car project —
Nano project — in Singur for which some 997 acres of land would be allocated.
The land would be acquired for the Tatas by a state industry promotion agency.
Mamata Banerjee then had kicked up a storm
and protested the acquisition of the land by industry giants Tata. The farmers,
whose land was being acquired by the company, were taking their compensation
cheques, however to stop agitation led by the Trinamool Congress, CPM &
Tata’s turned violent.
Tata soon started the construction of the
plant and amid the agitation released their model Nano car. However, Mamata Banerjee
relentlessly protested the acquisition of the land while firmly asserting that
her party was not anti-industry and the 400 acres of land belonging to the
'unwilling farmers' should be returned to them. Her "Save Farmland"
movement was supported by various environmental activists and intellectuals.
Mamata Banerjee was on 26days
hunger strike in protest. Even then Bengal’s Governor wants to settle the issue
but arrogant Buddhadeb & Ratan Tata thoughts they are above the law.
Court of India now justified Mamata Banerjee’s Singur Movement (Singoor
Andolon) was right and killer Buddhadeb, whose goons grabbed the land for their
master Tatas and killed many including brutal rape and killing of Tapasi Malik
believe that now Ratan Tata & Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee should seek unconditional
apology from public, farmers & martyr’s family.
