Kolkata, Sep 7 (IANS) The deadlock following the farmers’ agitation against Tata Motors’ Nano small car project in Sigur was resolved late Sunday night as the West Bengal government agreed to form a committee to look into the demand and the opposition Trinamool Congress suspended its campaign against it.Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi, who mediated the talks between the Left Front government and the Trinamool, told reporters after several rounds of talks and some twists that the imbroglio was resolved.
The state government will form a committee within a week to look into the affected farmers’ demands and till then the construction of the ancillary units - the bone of contention - will be on hold, said Gandhi, with Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and Trinamool leader Mamata Banerjee at his side.
Banerjee said her party will suspend the agitation at the Tata Motors plant in Singur, about 40 km from here.
The government has taken a decision to provide land to the affected farmers, Gandhi said.
