Durgapur, Sep 26 (UNI) Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP) Director Bikash Sinha today said Tata Motors' small car ''Nano'' project pullout from Singur would be dangerous and harmful, adding no entrepreneur would further brave into investing in West Bengal in future.

Speaking at the 56th anniversary of Central Mechanical Engineering &Research Institute(CMERI), Mr Sinha said people outside the state looked sarcastically at West Bengal as not many investors venture here for setting up industry, stating that the pullout would add more to it.

''I am the son of a farmer and became a scientist later. The state does not lack meritorious students. But lack of opportunities has led brain drain to other states. For this reason, the project is very much needed in West Bengal,'' Mr Sinha, also the Prime Minister's advisor (scientific committee), felt.

Furthermore, the CMERI had developed a rickshaw powered by solar energy, which will be launched in Delhi in the next month.
