Singur, Sep 6: A positive outcome is likely to fallout in the meeting on Singur deadlock between Trinamool Congress -led Krishi Jamin Raksha Committee and the Bengal Governor, Gopal Krishna Gandhi. A small but a significant development occured in the first round of talks in the meeting. Apart from the compensation package for the farmers who lost their lands, there are speculations of the government to part with 44 acres of land set aside for the West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation inside the Tata Motors compound.
It seems Trinamool too has climbed down as the party now wants restoration of 250 acres of land instead of 400.
But the talks was not a cake walk. They started on Friday, Sep 5 six hours late. The state government refused to attend unless Mamata Banerjee promised to lift the blockade on National Highway 2. In the end Mamata relented, one side of the highway was cleared for traffic.
The objective of the meeting is to end the deadlock in the next couple of days without losing face. The Governor managed to keep the talks alive is itself an achievement. Trinamool Cong and the WB govt are likely to resolve the Singur issue in the next 48 hrs.
