Mamata blames Buddhadeb for Singur row

Kolkata, Sept 13 (ANI): Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief Mamata Banerjee on Saturday blamed the West Bengal Government for the Singur row as it broke the terms of the agreement with her party.

Banerjee, while alleging that Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhatterjee was taking all the decisions without consulting TMC, said, “West Bengal government doesn”t respect us. It has broken the terms of agreement.

We are not ready for any more talks,” said Banerjee, and added, We will announce a final decision on September 19.

Banerjees statement came barely hours after Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi called for a “spirit of accommodation” that was evident during the talks he presided over to break the Singur deadlock.

Bhattarjee offered 70 acres in lieu of the Tata Motors project site at Singur to unwilling farmers and monetary compensation to those whose land fell outside, which was rejected by the TMC chief on Friday evening. (ANI)
