Kolkata, Oct 30 (UNI) Braving the Nano bash, the ruling Left Front today advised the State Government to explore all possibilities of setting up new industries in Singur.

After a meeting with the constituents here, Front Chairman Biman Basu told mediapersons that the effort has already been initiated under the guidance of Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and the meeting extended a ''new momentum'' to the ongoing process.

''We have advised the state government to accelerate the process of setting up alternative industries in Singur in the aftermath of Tata Motors' exit from the place,'' Mr Basu observed.

He, however, said the Front did not give any direction or specify the industries to be set up in Singur, which, according to him, was the government's prerogative.

Asked whether the Tatas had been asked to return the Singur land, Mr Basu said the land was given to the Tatas for setting up their small car project and it had to be returned if the purpose was not served.

''Under the Land Accusition Act, the land was given to Tatas for setting up industries and even after their departure, it will accommodate industries only,'' the Front Chairman maintained.
