Few at the Cost of Quite a Few

Posted in Economy, Policy by dullar on March 22, 2007

This is the way the development has happened in this country from very early days of the free India. The latest instances of controversies in the matter of coming up of SEZ is yet another glaring continuation of the same. The same has happened few months back when the government gave a green signal to the increase in the height of narmada dam. Is that face of develoment that government is trying to bring in this country, no matter what its consequeces might come out to be. People have always protested about the eviction of the lands they have been relying for their livlihood, since the time of the forefathers. Their are many angles of the attachments, say economic, social, emotional and egoistic.
All the institutional mechanism that were created for the welfare of common man suddenly take a completely opposite stance and work for the very destruction of the same. Police Department, Administrative sytem, Political Parties, State Government, Union Government have a share in the miseries, and un-reedemable losses of the people.
One good and positive aspect of whole issue has been the people’s protest. Now people are mentally more well equipped to protest and raise their voices against the excesses of the state. Media, NGOs, information system, and self-sensitive people has really stood as a guard against their natural and legal rights.
Nandigram has been a blot on the face of so-called for the people and of the people state. Really no doubt there are a few takers for the government’s stand on the issues of type of political and economic development in the whole belt ranging from west-bengal to karnataka, a region some know by name of red corridor. Government itself is pushing common man in the realm of red.
