Six top universities and management institutes in the country , including IIM-Calcutta and IIM-Bangalore, have expressed interest to hear out the decadelong Singur story .
Earlier, top US universities, including Yale and Columbia varsities, had also heard how Mamata Banerjee, then a firebrand opposition leader, had led an antiland acquisition stir which found reverberations across the country . The focus, then, was also to understand how a woman -all but written off politically -had scripted the downfall of the three-and-ahalf decade communist regime.
Now, premier Indian universities and management institutes are keen to understand how chief minister Mamata Banerjee treads the uncharted path of an odd duality -supporting agriculture and industry together -in regions which are primarily agrarian.
Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’ Brien said, “I will be speaking at IIM-Bangalore on September 22. I will speak on the Singur story . Six universities and institutes, including IIM-Bangalore and IIMCalcutta, have evinced interest to hear it out. We are firming up the details.“
