New Delhi, Sep 29: Information and Broadcasting Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi expressed strong hopes that the Singur land row could be solved through talks amicably. Though Tatas had planned to move out, Dasmunsi urged another round of talks between Tata and West Bengal Govt can solve the crisis.
“We will not accept the fact that Tata Motors want to leave Singur after destroying thousands of acres of land in Singur and the Hooghly River. This is not right on their part," said Dasmunsi at a rally in Singur. Dasmunsi expressed that an all-party meeting should be called to discuss the impasse. The answer, he said, lies in a combination of three formulae - land for land, adequate compensation and employment.
Instead of being adamant and insisting on pulling out of the project at Singur, Dasmunsi advised that the Tata Motors administration should seek an acceptable solution. He called the threat to abandon the Singur project as an irresponsible act that made it look like a child"s play.
Left Front should offer better economic compensation to the farmers who had lost their land in Singur, he opined.
Tata Motors has suspended work at Singur plant where it was supposed to roll out the world's cheapest car Nano.
The work has been stopped since some of Tata Motors workers were allegedly threatened and manhandled by a section of farmers to protest the acquisition of their land for the Nano project.
