La commercialisation de la voiture la moins chère du monde
Attention, la production pourrait être impactée
So while Tata unveiled a 33-horsepower, 624-cc Nano amid razzmatazz at the Auto Expo 2008, peasant leader Becharam Manna lit a cardboard model as his supporters beat the burning model with sticks and indignation.
There was also unrest at the car plant itself. The West Bengal government has acquired about 935 acres for the plant, triggering violent protests that eventually galvanised people of Nandigram in East Midnapore district to lead a near uprising against a proposed chemical hub and special economic zone (SEZ).
‘They named the car Nano meaning something that cannot be seen through ordinary eyes. We hope the people of India would not want to see it at all. The peasants are protesting in New Delhi also and Ratan Tata had no guts to unveil the car, made in Pune, in West Bengal,’ Manna told IANS as he led a procession to lodge a symbolic protest against the car’s unveiling.
‘This is a car of despair and pain. Tatas could not bring out the car from Singur plant also. So many farmers committed suicide for the car, so many families were destroyed and now they have also thrown out about 350 temporary workers guarding the plant. These people also included land losers,’ said Manna.
On Wednesday, temporary workers retrenched from the plant led an agitation and reportedly fought with the police forcing suspension of work in the morning.
‘We don’t have any official statement… In the morning there were some disruptions but work resumed soon after around 12 noon,’ said a spokesperson of a PR firm that represents the Tatas.
P. Bakshi, officer in charge of the Singur police station, added: ‘There was no clash between cops and workers.’
According to reports, over 3,500 people are racing against time in Singur to meet two deadlines: chisel the car plant into shape by June and prime it for production by the year-end.
Around 1,500 men in uniform are guarding the 935-acre plot.
‘Work is going on in full steam. I cannot say what percentage of work is complete but a lot of work has taken place,’ said a Tata Motors spokesperson.
In Kolkata, West Bengal’s Industry Minister Nirupam Sen said the car would roll out in due time.
While journalists are still barred entry in the area, a villager of Singur said: ‘We can see the shed coming up but we are not sure if any car would ever roll out.’
The protest over the Singur plant in West Bengal heralded the birth of a civil society movement in the state. No farmer was ever killed in Singur despite several incidents of violence and clashes.
But the December 2006 rape and murder of Tapasi Malik, a farmer’s daughter, inside the fenced off area prompted a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe and led to the arrest of a ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) local leader and a party supporter.
Tata n’a qu’à offrir des voitures à tout les plaignants comme ça au lieu d’être agriculteurs ils seront taxis.
pas si simple :
Under construction Singur plant from where the Nano is supposed to roll out.
The facility in West Bengal’s Singur, which would deliver the dream car, could still be a cause of worry for the daring industrialist.
Repeated interruptions in construction work could leave Tata Motors in the lurch in June 2008. That’s the company deadline for giving final shape to the plant so that it could roll out its first car by the year-end.
Given the kind of hurdles the project has had to face since inception, meeting the June 2008 deadline is a stiff proposition. Achieving that would be no less a feat for Tata Motors than rolling out the people’s car itself.
Ironically, work at the 935-acre site has slowed down considerably, since Thursday – the day Nano was launched.
This time due to protest by a section of security guards owing allegiance to the CPM and are resisting the company’s decision to downsize its workforce.

Day of rumours in SingurSecurity guards slammed the brakes on work at the Tata Small Car factory in Singur on Thursday after a rumour that half of them were going to be sacked.
They closed the gates and prevented workers from entering the plant. By noon, trucks carrying building material had lined up outside. The protesters then put up a CPM flag in front of the main gate.
Trouble began when the authorities allegedly informed the security guards

Ce devait être la voiture la moins chère du monde. Mais le constructeur Tata a du en arrêter la production à cause de mouvements de protestation. Au fond, estime le Hindustan Times, l’échec de la Nano sera peut-être l’échec de la démocratie indienne.
