Singur
Mumbai: Singur was a "great disappointment" but Tata group may still go to West Bengal, hints outgoing Chairman of the group Ratan Tata.

"Need not be Tata Motors. We have until the court decides this, the plant is still there. Whether it is Tata Motors or something else," he said in an interview to PTI.

He was asked about his recent statement that some day Tatas will go back to West Bengal considering the fact that Tata Motors had to shift to Gujarat after a bitter experience in Singur.

Tata, who will step down as Chairman of Tata group on December 28, said he had a great affinity with eastern Indian because it has not not partaken in the growth and prosperity of the rest of the country.

"If there is something that I could do to be involved with in eastern India, I would welcome that. You see, I lived in Jamshedpur for six years, very close to Kolkata and I used to be in Kolkata of and on.

"Bengali people are very nice people. So I have an affinity, don't speak the language, that part of the country and to see something happen there would be quite a thrill for me," he said.

Building the cancer hospital in Kolkata, in itself, Tata said has been a thrill for him because lives can be saved in that part of the country.

"It is something that I feel very proud that I have been able to do," he said.
