There is a story that when Ratan Tata finally decided to close the Tata Nano at Singur, West Bengal due to unrelenting opposition of Mamata Banerjee, Narendra Modi, then the Chief Minister of the Gujarat had sent a SMS to him simply writing 'Suswagatham' and the factory was set up in Gujarat at Sanand within 14 months.
As a matter of fact at the stage of land acquisition etc. only the protests etc. are registered and factory comes much later. Generally the people are taken care by offering adequate compensation and promises of employment etc.
Thus there remains nothing in protesting later or complaining about the pollution etc. Generally on paper at least adequate preventive measures are shown to exist.
While talking about the subject matter, who can forget the Bhopal gas tragedy, which is considered the world's worst industrial disaster. It had caused 3,787 deaths related to the gas release.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
