One has to be very cautious while acquiring two-crop or three-crop land for industrial use. And, enough compenstion has to be given, Basu said after attending a meeting of state committee of CPI(M). Basus comments were significant as they were made in the backdrop of persistent criticism by non-CPI(M) Left partners on acquiring agricultural land and demand for transparency in land deals.
The CPI leaders had a spat with chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacherjee some days ago over the land deal for Tata Motors car project in Singur in Hooghly. Basu, at the same time, wanted that coalition partners should not do anything, which would damage the image of the Left.
