Kolkata, Aug 5 (UNI) BNCCI president K K Navada today said that prevailing investment climate in West Bengal should not be vitiated at the cost of "temporary political mileage".
Mr Navada in a statement also expressed serious concern over the politicisation of development issues in the state.
"The recent tussle centered around a major manufacturing unit, as proposed band called on August 21 is all threat for West Bengal in attarcting investment", Mr Navada without mentioning the unit and the parties, said.
The Bengal National Chamber of Commerce&Industry also suggested that the ruling parties and the oppositions should settle their disputes by stting across the table instead of paralysing life.
"In most of the states in India, both the ruling and opposition parties have been working hand-in-hand in such matters for the greater interest of the state. Elected members from the ruling as well as Opposition parties are bargaining in New Delhi for better allocation of funds from the Centre," Mr Navada explained.
Both the ruling and Opposition parties should settle their disputes by sitting across the table. Such practice should not necessarily be confined to a particular project but taken up as a matter of regular practice whenever proposals of huge investment were considered, the statement added.
