Kolkata, Mar 28: After the successful launch of Nano car by Tata motors, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee is now saying that the people of Singur still want the project. "People of Singur want the factory over there, they are very hopeful and I have conveyed this to the higher authorities of the Tata Group," Bhattacharjee said in an interview to a private regional news channel here.
For around two and a half years, Singur had turned into a battleground for allotting land to the Tatas for Nano project. On Oct 3 last year the company announced it had scrapped its plans to bring out the small car, priced at Rs 100,000, from the Singur facility. The plant was shifted to Sanand in Gujarat.
