So what exactly did West Benhal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee have to say when he visited Nandigram ?

”We have suffered because you have suffered. I have come here to sympathise with the families of those who have lost their lives. Peace has been restored in Nandigram but it is also the responsibility of the people of Nandigram. I appeal to you to not bring any more unrest in this area,”

”We had hoped to make Nandigram a huge industrial hub, a second Haldia. There was nothing wrong with our vision. But then a lot of misinformation spread. They said we would forcibly take over people’s land, demolish mosques. Are we mad? Can any government take away land by force if the people are not willing,”

That was pretty much it.

Offstumped Bottomline: Buddha’s healing touch in Nandigram fooled no one. By glossing our his party’s Taliban Act on Nandigram’s many Muslims while continuing to play the Islamist card on the Taslima issue, Buddha is trying to have it both ways. The clock is ticking on the CPI-Mafioso in West Bengal. Her public shenanigans notwithstanding Mamata Bannerjee must take a leaf or two from Narendra Modi’s notebook to take on the CPI-M.
