Timeline Bhangar

In Bhangar, West Bengal, through chicanery, intransparency and force the government is building high voltage power infrastructure in a densely populated area. In January the police of the TMC government shot and killed two protestors. This was followed by arrests, slapping of indiscriminate UAPA charge, and terrorising of local people by the TMC goons. Undeterred by the pincer attack, Bhangar is fighting on. In the meanwhile, Mamata Banerjee, who rekindled her political career fighting forcible land acquisition by the Left Front government, rants and raves about funding of Bhangar protests by Venezuela. This well-made documentary “Dateline Bhangar” traces the build up of land acquisition resistance movement in Bhangar.
