Mamata Banerjee Singur Land Movement, Bengal school’s class 8 question paper seeks five answers. A page from the history textbook for class 8 students who have to study Singur’s land movement by Mamata Banerjee and her party leaders.
A state of west bengal school in Kolkata has set as many as five questions on chief minister Mamata Banerjee and her land movement in Singur in the history paper for the annual exam of class 8, triggering sharp reaction from opposition parties. The five questions carry a total of 14 marks in a paper of 70 marks. The exam was held last week.
Abhinanda Ghosh Dastidar, the headmistress of Tiljala Balika Vidyalaya rejected any possibility of political considerations weighing on the teacher who framed the questions. That is the likely reason for five questions being set from that part,” said Ghosh Dastidar.
The Singur movement that began in 2006 opposing the land acquisition policy of the Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee government for the Nano factory of Tata Motors is one of the defining moments of Mamata Banerjee’s political career that paved the way for the rout of the 34-year-old Left regime.
Titled “Jami Jal Jangal Jiban Jibikar Adhikar O Ganaandolan” (Land, water, forests: the right to life and livelihood and mass movements), were devoted to Mamata Banerjee’s Singur movement.
