Singur, Aug 27 (UNI) Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee, whose indefinite satyagraha entered its fourth day today, thundered again that ''Nano'' would not roll out from Singur factory unless the 400 acre land was returned to the farmers.

''We wil not allow the small car to roll out from the Singur factory until and unless the 400 acre of forcibly acquired land is returned to the unwilling farmers. We will continue our agitation till our demand is conceded,'' she reiterated.

Ms Banerjee also said, ''The state government should shed its ego and return the 400 acre land. The government should not take us lightly. The factory should be set up on 600-650 acres of land as per the Tata Motors' letter to us.'' ''Leave aside the Durgapur Expressway, if the 400 acre land is not returned, we will go for a more vigorous movement,'' she asserted.

Ms Banerjee alleged that three people, who worked for the Tata Motors, had not been paid their dues and curtailed the duration of her party's road blockade programme by one hour from 1600 hrs to 1700 hrs instead of 1500 hrs to 1700 hrs because of ''Friday prayer''.
