All-party meet on Nandigram today

An all-party meeting will be held here today to discuss all the issues relating to Nandigram with an aim of restoring peace in the troubled areas.

Kolkata, May 24 : An all-party meeting will be held here today to discuss all the issues relating to Nandigram with an aim of restoring peace in the troubled areas.

The meeting is convened by Forward Block leader Ashok Ghosh.

Right now, it is very difficult to say who all will attend the meeting, Ghosh said, adding that Trinamool Congress chief Mamta Banerjee will attend the meeting.

Ghosh was not clear who will be attending from the CPI-M side.

Earlier, it was announced that West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and State CPI-M Secretary Biman Bose will not attend the meeting.

They are leaving for Delhi to attend a Politburo meeting, scheduled to be held on Friday.

Ghosh had said that he had received an assurance from Bhattacharjee that the decisions taken at the meeting would be put into effect by the State Government, as demanded by the Mamta Banerjee-led Krishi Jami Raksha Committee.

The Trinamool MP had earlier refused to respond to calls of peace talks.

The all-party meet aims to start the peace process at troubled Nandigram in East Midnapore District, where 14 people, who were protesting against acquisition of agricultural land for industrialisation, were killed in police firing in March.

Banerjee made it clear that she would raise her agenda and the March 14 police action in Nandigram. She wanted the CBI probe to be completed and blamed that the state CID for not filing chargesheets against 10 people arrested at the Janani brick kiln and allowing them to get bail.

According to sources, the Socialist Unity Centre of India (SUCI) has refused to attend the meet, while the Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee (Farm Land Protection Committee), the Jamiat-Ulema-e-Hind and the BJP did not receive an invitation.
