Kolkata, Sep 7 (UNI) Marked with glitches, talks between West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacherjee and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee today tottered to linger till late in the night as a concrete solution to the Nano tangle did not emerge so far.

The Chief Minister, who held a two-hour face-to-face meeting with Ms Banerjee in presence of Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi at the Raj Bhawan in the afternoon, sat for the second round after discussing the matter within the ruling Left Front.

Though Mr Bhattacherjee offered to give up about 40 acre land from within the project area and another 100 acre from outside for rehabilitation of the Singur land losers, Ms Banerjee demanded a larger share of the cake.

Mr Bhattacherjee left the meeting at 1835 hours though the Trinamool supremo stayed back.

He, however, returned after a couple of hours.

Earlier, the Governor had invited Ms Banerjee to participate in the discussions to resolve the impasse over the Singur issue as a solution remained elusive even after two days of meetings between the government and the Opposition.

It seemed the problem was inching towards a solution with the Chief Minister joining the parleys at the invitation of Governor.

Mr Bhattacherjee was understood to have told the Governor that it was difficult to give over 40 acre land from within the walled planned area of the Tata project, but efforts should be on to locate as much land as possible from outside for rehabilitation of all the land losers.

EDS:Here pick up suitably from earlier series.
