Kolkata: The West Bengal government on Wednesday
said it has not rejected proposals of IT majors Wipro and
Infosys for setting up units near the state capital.

The government had only scrapped the IT park which was to
come up near the controversial Vedic Village resort, Left
Front chairman Biman Bose told reporters after a LF meeting

Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee told the meeting
that the proposals of Wipro and Infosys had not been rejected,
Bose said.

In April 2008, the state government had inked two MoUs--
one each with Infosys and Wipro--for setting up IT facilities,
for which they had sought 90 acre each. While for Infosys it
would had been the first project, Wipro was planning a second
one. A company had been floated for setting up an IT park near
Vedic Village which now stood scrapped.

On results of Siliguri civic polls where the TC-Congress
combine defeated LF to form the civic board, Bose said the
Darjeeling Left Front has been asked to submit a report.

He said the TC-Congress combine had won by a difference
of only 1.01 per cent.
