Kolkata, Oct 4 (UNI) CPI(M) State secretary Biman Basu today urged the West Bengal government to accommodate those youths, who were imparted training for being absorbed in Tata Motors' Nano project, and iterated that the government should also look forward for some other industries at Singur.
''The government has taken an initiative for the uplift of the state, but the way the Opposition, led by Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee, and some Naxalite groups had created hindrances is literally condemnable,'' Mr Basu, also the Left Front chairman, told newspersons here.
Though the Nano factory was being relocated out of the state, the government should look forward for some other industries at Singur and ensure that the trained youths could be accommodated, he stated.
He said though 11,000 out of 13,000 land owners had given permission and accepted compensation for setting up of the small car factory, the Trinamool Congress and its allies had played a condemnable role from the very beginning for throwing the government's industrial policy haywire.
He said most of the people in the state vouched for industrialisation and urged the people to be alert and take initiative to make successful the government's industrial policy.
Referring to a query, Mr Basu said the government's industrial policy was not aimed at vote bank politics, but it was for the state's economic development.
''After acquiring the land, if the government fails to set up an industry within a timeframe, the government could go for auction of the land. But there is no provision for global tender and I don't know who are saying all these ?'' he replied to a another query.
