Singur being mirrored in China

The communist government in Bengal is facing intense resistance from farmers in their attempt to convert prime agricultural land for industrial use. Allegations of scams and an unholy nexus between party activists and unscrupulous realtors are being flung around every day.

Such conflicts however are very common in China but news of such conflicts are generally suppressed by the media there.

One such incident has happened recently in Guandong province and has been reported by the BBC
