Kolkata: Eminent filmmaker and actress Aparna Sen on Saturday called on the people of West Bengal to fight for the cause of Nandigram just as they did in the case of Rizwanur Rahman.

“Like we protested in Rizwanur’s case seeking a CBI probe into his mysterious death, we must also do the same in this case,” Aparna said while joining social activist Medha Patkar and others at Esplanade here.

Cautioning the Left Front government in West Bengal, she said, “It may be running the state government, but the state is not its fiefdom.”

Likening the state to a slaughterhouse, she quoted from a Bengali poetry, saying, “This bloodied slaughterhouse is not my country.”

“For our democratic rights, we must fight,” she said.

Sen was joined by filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh, writer Mahasweta Devi and Medha Patkar at the agitation venue.
