The left front government in West Bengal (India) proposed acquiring 1,000 acres of agricultural land to set up a chemical hub in Nandigram. Villagers across Nandigram rose in revolt against this decision. The government decided to crush the people's rebellion through force, resulting in a massacre on March 14th, 2007. Ultimately, the government decided to withdraw its decision to acquire land in Nandigram.
