ML for abolition of SEZ Act

Posted by Indian Vanguard on April 22, 2007

PATNA: National general secretary of the CPI(ML) Dipankar Bhattacharya on Friday denounced the concept of special economic zones (SEZs) and called for the abolition of the Act related to it.

Speaking at a seminar on “SEZ and Development and Issues Before Democracy”, organised by a Hindi magazine, “Samkalin Janmat”, here, Bhattacharya said that it was unfortunate that when the Bill pertaining to the SEZ was being passed in the Parliament, no one, not even the CPM, spoke against it.

However, when the public uproar on the issue reached its zenith in Nandigram and Singur, the CPM started demanding amendments to the Act.

“What is more ridiculous is the fact that the CPM has, so far, simply demanded amendments to the Act and rather feels shy in going the whole hog opposing the move of the UPA government. Moreover, after the “Nandigram operation”, the CPM has no moral right to take on the Congress on the SEZ issue,” Bhattacharya said.

“The CPM is only engaged in shadow-boxing,” Bhattacharya said. Head of the department of economics, Patna University, Nawal Kisore Chowdhary and CPI leader Badri Narain also spoke on the occasion.
