Kolkata, Sept 7, 2008: After more than two years’ continued protests at Tata’s Singur plant there is a solution in sight at last.

The solution whose contours are still not fully clear was reached in a meeting between West Bengal chief Minister Budhdhadeb Bhattacharjee and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee.

The talks brokered by the West Bengal governor Gopal Krishna Gandhi comes as relief to not only West Bengal but the whole country that was awaiting the rolling out of Tata’s lakhtakiya car (Rs I lakh car).

Two weeks ago Ratan Tata had threatened to relocate to alternate site after continued dharna around the Nano car plant at Singu. Later in the eye of the siege of the plant by farmers and Trinamool Congress activists Tatas suspended the work at the plant owning to the security of its employees there.

A senior CPIM leader Shyamal Chakraborty said after Mamata-Bhattacharjee meeting that “An acceptable formula has been found, but some more discussions are still needed”.

As per reports that are still hazy West Bengal government would provide alternate land somewhere else.
