Mamata government says it stands by farmers
Kolkata: Minutes after the Calcutta High Court division bench on Friday held the Singur Land Rehabilitation and Development Act, 2011, as unconstitutional and void, the West Bengal Government Friday stated it is committed towards the interests of the farmers and that the next line of judicial action will be decided soon.
"We are committed towards the interest of farmers and share croppers. We are always with them and will remain with them. The unwilling farmers should not worry. After receiving the full version of the judgment we decide our next line of judicial procedures," Industries Minister Partha Chatterjee said.
The Mamata Banerjee government suffered a serious jolt when the Calcutta High Court Friday struck down as unconstitutional and void the Singur Land Rehabilitation and Development Act, 2011, which had scrapped the land lease given to Tata Motors by the earlier Left Front regime.
Chatterjee, however, denied commenting on the judgment passed by the division bench of the Calcutta High Court.
