`More time needed to study Tata-WB govt pact`

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had said the agreement between the Tatas and the Left Front government would be made public today.



Kolkata: Though it was announced that the
government would make public the agreement between the West
Bengal government and Tata for its Nano project at Singur,
Industry minister Partha Chatterjee on Thursday said more time was
required to study the legal implications.

"We are examining the legal issues. There are many
parties involved, not only the Tatas. There are 54 vendors
which exist on paper.

More time is needed to study and to examine the legal
implications," Chatterjee, told reporters after a meeting with
the principal industry secretary, WBIDC managing director and
IT secretary.

He said it was fortunate that Anindya Mitra, tipped to be
the new advocate general by the present government, was
familiar with the issue.

The Calcutta High Court in September, 2008 had restrained
the WBIDC from making the agreement public on a petition moved
by the Tatas.

Chatterjee said: "Mamata Banerjee will not do anything
which will complicate matters further".

He failed to give a timeline by when the agreement would
be made public.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had yesterday said the
agreement between the Tatas and the erstwhile Left Front
government would be made public today.
