ONCE again the villagers of Bhangar who are struggling for last more than one year against the imposition of a 400 kv Power Grid Project under the leadership of the Committee for Protection of Land, Livelihood, Biodiversity and Environment, have come under severe attacks by TMC goons with bombs and guns supported by police for the last one week as the dates for the local bodies elections are drawing nearer. On 4th January morning a eleven member team of anti Power Grid Struggle Committee of KMSS, Assam, who came to extend solidarity to the Bhangar Committee were detained. Hundreds of democrats, intellectuals, political leaders and activists who were going to participate in the protest march in the villages were detained and sent to different police stations. It is practically a reign of terror against the villagers who are waging a peaceful resistance against this anti people project.

It is in this situation, to protest against the oppressive acts of the TMC government and to declare solidarity with the struggling villagers a march was organized from Mandi House metro station to the Banga Bhavan for handing over the following memorandum to the chief minister of West Bengal through its Resident Commissioner at Delhi. Comrades from different organizations declaring solidarity with Bhangar movement addressed it. The memorandum was handed over to the Resident Commissioner by comrades KNR, Vimal Trivedi and Malik (Mandoli Kisan Andolan, Gaziabad). 
