WB Governor writes to Ratan Tata about initiative taken to resolve Singur deadlock

September 3rd, 2008 - 8:55 pm ICT by ANI  

Kolkata, Sep 3 (ANI): West Bengal Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi has sent a letter to Tata Motors chairman Ratan Tata after work was suspended work at companys Nano car plant at Singur.

Raj Bhavan sources said on Wednesday that Gandhi is understood to have informed Tata about the initiative taken to resolve the Singur deadlock with the help of a mediator.

A total investment of Rs 1,500 crore has been envisaged for Tatas ambitious project to roll out the Rs.1 lakh Nano car by October.

The project, however, has been mired into a controversy with Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee demanding return of 400 acres out of a total 1,000 acres land leased out by the state government.

As there were no signs of a breakthrough in the impasse, Tata Motors on Tuesday said it has been constrained to suspend the construction and commissioning work at the Nano plant in Singur in view of continued confrontation and agitation at the site. (ANI)
