Trinamool leader meets WB Governor to resolve Singur deadlockSeptember 1st, 2008 - 8:16 pm ICT by ANI
Kolkata, Sep 1 (ANI): Trinamool Congress leader Partha Chatterjee today met West Bengal Governor Gopal Krishna Gandhi for the second day following his initiative to resolve deadlock over Singur issue.
Chatterjee, who is the Leader of the Opposition in the assembly, had an hour closed meeting with Gandhi today.
It could not be ascertained if Chatterjee delivered any communication from Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee to the Governor who wrote to her last Saturday, urging her to take part in the negotiations.
Meanwhile, work continues to be stalled at the Tata Motors small car plant in Singur. The management says conditions are not conducive for work.
“Conditions are still not conducive here for resuming our work. We continue to assess the situation closely,” a Tata Motors spokesperson said in Kolkata.
Agitators continue to block the main entry points of the factory and the Durgapur Expressway is still blocked, leaving thousands of heavy vehicles stranded.
For Tata Motors, the trouble started after the Left Front-led Government acquired farmland in Singur for the factory. The state offered compensation in return, but some villagers complained that they had not received their dues.
Others declined compensation.
In all, around 400 acres of land is still being fiercely disputed out of the 1,000 acres acquired by the State Government. (ANI)
