WB Govt for firm proposal from railways for Singur land
Kolkata: The West Bengal government on Tuesday
said it would work for getting back the land of the Tata`s
abandoned Nano project at Singur if the railways gave a
`concrete` proposal for a coach-building factory there.
"The process of negotiation with railways is on and we
hope in the process a concrete proposal will emerge," Chief
Secretary Ashok Mohan Chakrabarti said here today on the
sidelines of the 23rd BNCCI organised Industrial Trade Fair.
He said that negotiations for getting the land back from
the Tatas prior to a concrete proposal would raise a question
about alternate use of the land.
On the railway rejecting a proposal from the West Bengal
government to inspect the site, Chakrabarti said that the
government would reply to the letter of the railways.
The letter from the Railways reportedly said that the
state government should first secure the release of the land
from the Tatas before asking for an inspection.
Asked about the return of 400 acre to farmers who
unwillingly parted with their land for the Nano project and a
long-standing demand of the Trinamool Congress, he said "We
will abide by the Supreme Court direction."
