Talks between government officials and protesters opposed to India's cheapest car factory have ended without agreement.
The leader of the West Bengal state's opposition Trinamool Congress party, Partha
Chattopadhyaya on Friday told reporters both sides were heading towards a solution in the land dispute over the Tata Motors plant.
More talks are scheduled for Saturday.
West Bengal's governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi characterized discussions as "constructive" in spirit. India's Tata Motors suspended work this week at its Singhurfactory in West Bengal, after weeks of protests by farmers and opposition members.
The protesters say villagers were not fairly compensated for the land Tata is using for the factory.
The head of Tata says the company still plans to launch the world's cheapest
car as soon as possible, despite the protests.
