Tatas leave Singur behind, assure Mamata of big projects  


Kolkata : Leaving the ghost of Singur behind, various companies of the Tata Group said they would expand many of their existing projects in the state, reports PTI.

Senior executives of the Tata group companies today held a meeting with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and informed her about their plan to expand existing projects.

Asked about the ‘bitter experience’ of shifting of the Tata Nano car plant from Singur in 2008, Rana Sinha, one of the executives, said, “Forget the issue of the past and target the future.”

In September 2008 during the previous Left Front regime, the Tatas left Singur in West Bengal and set up Tata Nano car plant at Sanand in Gujarat following an agitation by the then opposition Trinamool Congress’ leader Mamata Banerjee over ‘forceful’ acquisition of land in the area. A case regarding this is now pending in the Supreme Court.
