Vadodara, Oct 10 (UNI) The Gujarat Congress today threatened to launch a state-wide agitation if the Modi government did not make public its 'secret' deal with Tata Motors for their low-cost Nano car project.
Alleging that the auto giant had been provided 1100 acres of most precious land close to Ahmedabad at a throwaway price, state Congress spokesman Arjun Modhwadia demanded immediate release of the MoU signed between the state government and Tata Motors, which was not being made public 'deliberately.'' ''Congress is not opposed to the relocation of the Nano project from Singur in West Bengal to Sanand in Gujarat, but we will not allow the Modi government to give away such precious land worth over Rs 1000 crore at a throwaway price of Rs 100 crores,'' Modhwadia told a press conferece here.
Lambasting chief minister Narendra Modi for allegedly trying to take all credit for bringing Nano to Gujarat, the Congress spokesman alleged that ''it's nothing but sale out of Gujarat's interest as the people of the state are not going to benefit from this project except the Tatas.'' This was because Ratan Tata had assured to absorb all the Singur vendors and people those assured employment there at its Sanand project which would create only 4000 jobs, he added.
