Ratan Tata to meet Buddhadeb on SundaySeptember 27th, 2008 - 6:55 pm ICT by ANI
Kolkatta, Sept 27 (ANI): West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Saturday said that Ratan Tata, the Tata Group Chairman has replied to his letter and wants to talk to him on Singur issue, and the two are scheduled to meet on Sunday.
West Bengal Industry Minister Nirupam Sen had earlier said, “A meeting between the state government and Tatas may take place on Sunday to discuss the issue.”
“The Chief Minister has written to Tata requesting him to restart work at the Nano plant at Singur,” Sen said, and added that the Chief Minister in his letter had promised to extend all help and cooperation to the Tatas.
He also said the people of Singur and the state wanted the Tata project to remain at Singur.
On Friday, Bhattacharjee had asked Ratan Tata to restart work at Singur Nano project.
There has been no formal communication from the company to the State Government so far.
Work on the project has been suspended for nearly a month because of the protest by the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC).
Meanwhile, truckloads of material have started rolling out of the Singur Nano factory, a sign that Tata Motors is on an exit route from West Bengal.
Trouble began after the West Bengal government acquired 1000 acres of farmland for the Tata Motors small car plant at Singur last year.
The government offered compensation, which some farmers rejected.
The TMC leader Mamata Banerjee has been demanding that at least 400 acres be returned to farmers.
The government says it is in favour of a land-based solution for farmers but was against disturbing the Tata Motors plant site. (ANI)
