'Bad M' becomes CM in Bengal, Tatas brace up for the change

Ratan Tata
Kolkata, May 17: Times change and so do people who prefer development - politicians and corporate honchos are no exceptions. In an extension of this fact, Ratan Tata has reportedly sent a letter to Mamata Banerjee expressing his company's desire to resume its work in West Bengal.

Media reports claim that both the Trinamool Congress and Tata company spokesperson have confirmed the news of Mamata receiving a letter signed by Tata Sons director RK Krishna Kumar.

No comments have been cited from Mamata who will swear-in on Friday, May 20 as the new Chief Minister of West Bengal. However, Mamata had once stated, "We will attract large private sector investments."

It can be recollected that the Trinamool Congress has secured a landslide victory to put an end to the 34-year rule of Left parties in West Bengal.

Mamata-Tata relation had worsened when the company was compelled to move out from the state with its Nano car project. Ratan Tata had faced a massive agitation led by Mamata and her party in the proposed site for the ambitious small-car project. Singur and Nandigram protests were marked as the black era in Indian politics, especially in West Bengal politics.

It can also be recollected that Ratan Tata had referred to Mamata Banerjee and Narendra Modi as "bad M" and "good M" respectively after the Gujarat CM accommodated the Tatas in Gujarat to fulfill their 'Nano' dream in 2008.

In the context of the recent changes in the political scenario in West Bengal, Tata's latest move is believed as a calculative step by the company to lay groundwork for future investments in the state.
