Trinamool holds dharna for land losers in Salboni
Trinamool Congress State President and MP Subrata Bakshi on Wednesday attended a dharna at Salboni where Sajjan Jindal Group has put their steel project on hold.
The dharna was organised by the local Trinamool functionaries in front of the JSW Bengal Steel factory. Around 1,500 people, including over 150 land losers, participated in the dharna.
“We could solve the problem in 12 hours if we had all the power. But the Centre has a role here,” he said. Subrata Bakshi made it clear that the party is not against industry or any industrialist.
“We want industry here,” he added. He said if Jindals cannot set up an industry in Salboni, they should return the land.
