West Bengal to continue Singur industrialisationOctober 22nd, 2008 - 11:12 pm ICT by IANS
Kolkata, Oct 22 (IANS) The West Bengal government Wednesday said it will stick to its task of industrialisation and employment generation in Singur, where auto major Tata Motors abandoned its Nano small car project earlier this month.”We will continue with the process of industrialisation in Singur. We haven’t decided on any company yet,” Principal Secretary (Industry) Sabyasachi Sen told reporters here.
Though Sen said the state government had not yet decided the nature of the project that will come up, he talked about the possibility of building an industrial park in Singur, about 50 km from here.
Tata Motors Oct 3 announced it was relocating the Nano project from Singur to Gujarat and blamed the state’s main opposition party Trinamool Congress for the “painful” decision.
