Mamata prefers to ‘ignore’ Nano launch in Mumbai

March 23rd, 2009 - 8:23 pm ICT by IANS  

Bharatiya Janata Party Kolkata, March 23 (IANS) Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, whose campaign against land acquisition forced Tata Motors to move its Nano factory out of West Bengal, Monday dismissed the glittering launch of the world’s cheapest car in Mumbai with a curt “that’s not our business”.
As Tata Motors launched its much-awaited people’s car far away in Mumbai, the Trinamool Congress released its party manifesto for the Lok Sabha elections here.

Asked about her reaction to the Nano launch, Banerjee, who led a sustained protest against the land acquisition for the Tata Motors’ Nano project in Singur, said she was unperturbed about the event.

“This is not our business and we ignore it,” she replied to a question.

The Trinamool manifesto said that the party aimed at forming a secular, progressive and stable government at the centre which would focus on economic reforms, industry, agricultural development and adopt pro-people policies.

“We want a stable government and thus we are neither with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) nor with the newly formed Third Front led by the communists,” Mamata Banerjee told a press conference while releasing the document.

She said: “I appeal to all people of West Bengal to vote for the Trinamool Congress-Congress alliance as it is the only alternative in the state against the ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M)-led Left Front government.”
