New Delhi, Sep 12: Days after the state scrapped a proposed IT township project, Finance Minister, Pranab Mukherjee said that he will speak to the West Bengal government on allocating land to the IT majors like Wipro and Infosys.
"I will talk to state government to see if land is provided to the companies," Pranab Mukherjee said on Friday, Sep 12.
