Singur: Terming Singur and Nandigram as a turning point in West Bengal politics, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday acknowledged the contribution of the people of Singur in the movement against forcible farmland acquisition.

Observing 'Singur Day', Banerjee told a public rally here that and her government was in the process of formulating a new land policy.

"God has given me enough strength to overcome crisis and attack and I have full faith on Ma, Mati and Manush (mother, land and people) to serve you. I never bowed my head in the past nor will I succumb to pressure," she said.

She said her government had already taken a move to return the forcibly acquired land at Rajarhat in North 24 Parganas district within a month of coming to power.

Banerjee noted her government had not taken any revenge after coming to power though 'many misdeeds' of the previous regime had surfaced like recovery of huge quantities of arms, ammunition and seven skeletons from near the ancestral house of CPI(M) MLA and former minister Sushanta Ghosh.

"I may open two museums - one of seized arms and ammunition and another of skeletons that CPI(M) has left for the state," she said sarcastically.
