Leftists worried about development

The "activist groups" are worried about development. If the impressionable youth are lost to SEZ industries, who would be around to stage dharnas and bandhs to bring development to standstill. If the SEZs and companies come up, people will inevitably reject communism and participate in the economic growth, much like the youth from naxal villages who chose BPO jobs. So CBCNN being one of the activits, is presenting only the negative side of SEZs.

The Hindu : National : All set for padayatra against ‘undemocratic’ SEZ policies
Growing public unease over the governments’ move in various States to hand over community land to big companies and influential groups in the name of promoting Special Economic Zones and bio-diesel cultivation will manifest itself in a mass padayatra on August Kranti Diwas (August 9) planned by various activist groups
