Singur: TC workers storm into Tata Motors' site
January 16, 2007 17:42 IST
Trinamool Congress workers, led by party president Subrata Bakshi, on Tuesday stormed into the prohibitory order-bound site of Tata Motors' small car project in Singur cutting about 10 feet of barbed fencing, police said.
The activists entered the area suddenly as the police led by IGP (Western Range) Arun Gupta and DIG N R Babu were busy at Chanditala where party workers had assembled for a march to Singur in protest acquisition of farmland for the project.
Two posts tilted to one side as the fencing was being cut. The Trinamool workers then ran away, the police said.
Earlier, the two posts were uprooted.
Officials of the Tata Motors and state government were gheraoed in Singur on Monday. Prohibitory orders under Section 144 CrPC are in force in the area, which had witnessed violent agitation over the project by the TC-led Krishi Jami Raksha Committee over the past few months.
