Modi reaches out to Mamata

Narendra Modi has expressed the hope that if he comes to power at the Centre, he would get cooperation of the Mamata Banerjee government in creating a conducive atmosphere for industrialisation in West Bengal including resolving the Singur problem.

“I hope I will get all sorts of cooperation from the West Bengal chief minister in solving the Singur tangle. Not only Singur, I hope I will get cooperation from the state govenment in creating a conducive atmosphere for industrialisation in the state. Hope the Trinamool Congress will not indulge in votebank politics on the question of development of the state”, he told a Bengali daily.

On the Nano project, he said, “I gave land to the Tatas when they were in trouble. But I had some guilty feeling towards West Bengal because it was not my intention to deprive it (of the project).

“Now when I am thinking of the development of the entire country coming out of Gujarat, I have a thought on Singur also,” he said.

The Tatas had shifted their Nano small car project to Gujarat in 2008 in the face of agitation by the Trinamool Congress against acquisition of farmland in Singur by the then Left Front government. He said the criticism against each other by the BJP and TMC was “natural” during election campaign and assured that he has no grudge against any state.
