Singur, Sep 5 (UNI) Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee today accused the ruling Left Front in West Bengal of 'deliberately' deferring today's talks because it did not want an amicable solution to the Nano tangle.

''We are apprehending that CPI(M) cadres may unleash widespread violence across the state on the Singur issue. The postponement of the talks is a ploy of the Left Front government to delay an outcome to the imbroglio,'' she told mediapersons here shortly after Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi deferred the crucial meeting by six hours at the request of the state government.

She stated that she had also talked to Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh over the phone and informed him of the latest developments.

''I had a telephonic conversation with the SP leader and informed him about our party's stand on the issue. I also told him about our apprehensions of the ruling party's activists launching a reign of terror throughout the state and requested him to draw the attention of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to the situation in Singur,'' she said.

The SP leader had come out in support of Ms Banerjee's indefinite 'satyagraha' to demand return of 400 acres land ''forcibly acquired from unwilling farmers'' and also addressed the agitators from one of the platforms at the dharna site recently.

Ms Banerjee also alleged that the state government lacked the sincerity to solve the row over land acquisition and work for the development of both the agricultural and industrial sectors in the state.

Earlier, the Governor informed newspersons at Kolkata that the meeting, which was to be held at 1000 hours, had been deferred following a request from the Government side. Mr Gandhi is scheduled to preside over the crucial parley at the Raj Bhavan.

Meanwhile, state Home Secretary Ashok Mohan Chakraborty arrived at Singur to inspect the movement of vehicles through one of the flanks of NH two.

Earlier, Ms Banerjee had claimed that her party X X X picking up from line two, para one of CA9.
