Following the Chinese

N.Ram comes out with his pet-theory that everything good that India is doing is by "following the experience of China".

The Hindu : Opinion / Editorials : A partial solution

Following the experience of China, SEZs were conceived of as a quick fix to get over the problems...

even when all the 234 formally approved SEZs come up, they will take up just 0.1 per cent of the cultivable land. On the other hand, they are expected to attract investments of Rs.300,000 crore and generate four million jobs.

That is exactly why the communists threw all industries out of WB and Kerala.

An important component of the policy should be the rehabilitation of
farmers and farm labour, who will be unsettled from their traditional

Like shooting them down as the CPI(M) did in the Nandigram pogrom.
