Kolkata, Sept 12 : West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Friday held talks with Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief Mamata Banerjee to settle the Singur impasse.
The talks were held at Calcutta Information Centre.
The Chief Minister expressed the desire to hold immediate talks with Banerjee, on the basis of the "satisfactory progress" achieved on Friday's meeting between the State Government officials and the Trinamool Congress.
Bhattacharjee, who was accompanied by State Housing Minister Gautam deb, met Banerjee, who was assisted by Partha Chatterjee, an opposition leader.
Chatterjee said that Bhattacharjee had telephoned Banerjee and urged her to sit for an immediate discussion to settle the issue.
The TMC chief, he said, responded positively to the Chief Minister's request.
The meeting came shortly after the State Government placed 'specific proposals' to TMC this afternoon during talks with the land search committee.
The committee was formed as part of an agreement reached last Sunday between Bhattacharjee and Banerjee at the Raj Bhavan to look for land available in the Tata Motors project area in Singur for farmers who have not been compensated.
