Kolkata: In the backdrop of criticism by the opposition over lack of industries in West Bengal, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said the state would provide land for setting them up.
"If anyone wants to set up industry in Bengal, they are most welcome. We have also started the initiative of skill development. Companies like Samsung and Raymonds are partnering with us," Banerjee said speaking at `Kanayashree Diwas` where a senior official of Samsung electronics was present.
Banerjee`s comment came days after Ratan Tata had remarked that he did not see much sign of industrial development in the state.
