Kolkata: Trinamool Congress will not opt for
land grabbing to set up industries if it comes to power
in West Bengal, party MLA and Leader of Opposition in the
state Assembly Partha Chatterjee said on Saturday.

"We will have a land bank put in place if our party
comes to power," Chatterjee said, adding, if land needed to be
acquired it would be on the basis of consensus.

Criticising the Left Front government for its alleged
failure to set up industries during its three-and-half
decades-long rule, Chatterjee said "The present disposition
instead of providing support system to industries acted as
middlemen."

"During 1991-2006 no industry had come up in the state.
Who stopped them (the LF government)?" he asked at an
interactive session at Merchants` Chamber of Commerce here.

Commenting on and law and order situation in the state,
he said, "There is no law, no order."
