Singur, Aug 31: In order to break the Singur deadlock in West Bengal, the Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi has sent a two-page letter to Mamata Banerjee requesting her to come for talks. The letter comes after Tata Motors issued a statement saying no workers would come to the Nano plant. Mamata Banerjee is expected to announce her decision on Governor's invitation for talks to resolve the crisis on Sunday, Aug 31.

With the Governor making a bid to end the stalemate over Tata's Nano plant at Singur, Mamata Banerjee said she would consult with her party and the agitating group, as the indefinite blockade demanding return of land to farmers entered its eighth day on Sunday, Aug 31.

The governor's letter was delivered to Mamata on Friday night and follows the agitations and indefinte dharna being staged outside the Tata Motors plant in Singur since Aug 24.

Mamata told media that she had received a letter from Governor and said she would consult her party colleagues and members of Krishi Jomi Jibon Jibika Rakha Committee, spearheading the movement for return of the 400 acres of project to unwilling farmers.

The Tata's have threatened to move the project out of West Bengal, unless the agitation is stopped and the safety of the workers is ensured.

While the contents of the governors letter have not been made public, sources said that the governor has invited Mamata for dialogue with the State government. The letter emphasizes that there is no other way to resolve the crisis and the governor has expressed concern over Mamata's health.
