Bhopal, Sep 3 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today said 'Singur-like' situation would not be allowed to develop in case of setting up of ambitious Tata's Nano car project in the state.

Mr Chouhan made the statement during an informal discussion with reporters at his official residence here.

He said he wanted the Tata Group to set up a car manufacturing plant in Madhya Pradesh. The government would provide the necessary facilities to the Tata Group in this regard.

''The government would facilitate direct talks between the investor and farmers in this state and would play the role of a mediator only. This would ensure the welfare of both the sides,'' he said.

The Chief Minister said the government would make efforts to rehabilitated the farmers being displaced due to the project in a better manner without much inconvenience to the investor.

He further said a member of the displaced family should get employment besides a business premises wherever possible.

Referring to the textile mill to be established at Budhni in Sehore district, Mr Chouhan said the peasants have received a compensation of more than three times the market price of their land.

The Chief Minister, who had already invited the Tata Group for setting up the project, said he was still awaiting a reply from the Group.
