Kolkata, Aug 28 (UNI) Left Front Chairman Biman Basu today made another appeal to the Trinamool Congress to hold talks with the West Bengal Government and said the impasse over the small car issue could be solved only through dialogues.

'' Please come to negotiation table with the Government. Hold talks on any issue, including that of returning 400 acre to farmers.

The problem can be solved only through dialogues, '' he said while talking to reporters.

Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, who had appealed several times to Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee to end her agitation, also said a few days ago that she was free to raise the land issue at the negotiation table.

Earlier, the state Government had maintained that discussions could be held on rehabilitation of the landlosers in Singur and not on the demand for returning land since that would lead to scrapping of the Nano car project.

Demanding that 400 acre out of the 997 acre of the project site be returned to farmers, Ms Banerjee had been leading an indefinite dharna near the Tata Motors's plant at Singur since August 24 leading to a virtual siege on the project and blocking the national highway running through the area.

As a result, hundreds of trucks, carrying perishable items, remained stranded on Durgapur Expressway for the past five days.
