Buddha promises not to forcibly acquire land

December 26, 2007 13:11 IST

West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Wednesday said the Left Front government will not forcibly acquire land in Nandigram [Images] for a chemical hub.

Bhattacharjee appealed to the opposition to form a peace committee in Nandigram.

Bhattacharjee said a special committee has been formed to prepare a comprehensive package for Nandigram's development.

He also asked the Communist Party of India-Marxist leaders not to misbehave with opposition activists but to be polite with them.

Bhattacharjee added that he regrets the March 14 police firing in Nandigram and said no government in a civilised country can send the police to kill people.
