Kolkata, May 25: Criticising the state government for renewing land lease to the Tatas on Sunday, May 24, Trinamool Congress threatened to resume its movement in Singur for return of 400 acres of land forcibly acquired from farmers.

Trinamool Congress chief, Mamata Banerjee said, " When we were busy with Lok Sabha elections, the Left Front government quietly renewed lease of the land to the Tatas at Singur. We will resume our agitation for return of the 400 acres after six of our MPS take oath on Tuesday, May 26."

The state government had renewed the lease in Singur though the Tatas had not announced any plan to resume work, she claimed, adding "the Tatas also holds unutilised land in Gujarat and Kalinganagar in Orissa".

She also said, "It is unacceptable to us that some people will go on increasing their land holding while another section will not have enough to eat."
