Mamata wants 400 acres to be Returned, West Bengal Chief Minister Refuses


The Chief Minister of the Indian state of West Bengal Buddhadev Bhattacharjee proposed direct talks with the opposition leader Mamata Banerjee. to resolve the land imbroglio. But, Mamata spurned the offer and imposed a pre-condition that 400 acres of land must be returned to unwilling farmers before any dialogue can be initiated.

West Bengal government on Tuesday ruled out returning 400 acres of the Tata Motors' Nano factory site to farmers, saying such a step would mean dropping all plans to manufacture the world's cheapest car in the state.

Describing recent protests at Singur as "unfortunate," Bhattacharjee said that he was in constant touch with opposition leaders to ease the situation.

Political circles wonder if the opposition is aiming at lingering the crisis hoping more political mileage.
