Kolkata, Sep 29 (UNI) Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee will meet UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi tomorrow seeking Central intervention for implementation of the agreement between the West Bengal Government and the Opposition on the Singur issue.

''I will go to Delhi tomorrow and meet Mrs Gandhi with all related papers. We have been demanding implementation of the agreement, reached on September seven, but the Government is not doing it,'' she told reporters.

She said the papers to be submitted to the UPA Chairperson pertained to the agreement that provided for return of maximum land from within the Tata Motors' Nano project to the 'unwilling' land losers of Singur.

Ms Banerjee said she would also meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after he returned from abroad and Pratibha Patil President on the Singur issue.

'' We will also meet leaders of other political parties in the country,'' she said.

Ms Banerjee ruled out the possibility of her party participating in tomorrow's all-party meeting, as suggested by West Bengal Pradesh Congress President Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi and said the state Government must implement the agreement first.

'' Some agents of the CPI(M) are trying to mislead the people by speaking about an all-party meeting. We shall identify those agents,'' she said without taking any name.

She said her party would attend an all-party meeting only if it was for holding talks on technicalities of the agreement and ''not to discuss any package.'' '' We will go to any extent to get the agreement implemented. We are ready to sacrifice our lives,'' she said.

Alleging that the state Government was trying to promulgate prohibitory orders in Singur during the Puja festival, Ms Banerjee said such a move would be counterproductive.
