MODI BECOMES SOFT ON MAMTA BANARJEE
BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi showed the positive
expectations from Mamta Banarjee as he is hoping that if he comes to
power at the centre, he would get cooperation of Mamata Banerjee govt
in creating a suitable atmosphere for industrialization in West
Bengal including resolving the Singur problem.
After some hot verbal Communications by both sides in different
rallies, this statement of Narendra Modi raises a new question that
either it is a sign of convincing Mamta Banarjee to walk with BJP or
BJP realizes the importance of Mamta Banarjee in this Lok Sabha
According to Modi “I hope I will get all sorts of cooperation from
West Bengal chief minister in solving the Singur tangle. Not only
Singur, I hope I will get cooperation from the state government in
creating a conducive atmosphere for industrialization in the state.
Hope Trinamool Congress will not indulge in vote bank politics on the
question of development of the state”.
Talking on the Nano project, he said,that he had helped TATA by
giving him land in his state when the company was in trouble . but
also he have some guilty feeling towards West Bengal because it was
not my intention to deprive it (of the project). The Tatas had shifted
their Nano small car project to Gujarat in 2008 in the face of
agitation by Trinamool Congress against acquisition of farmland in
Singur by the then Left Front government.
Modi said, “Whatever Mamata Banerjee says about me, I will not make
any personal comment against her. On the other hand, I will give a
guarantee that the state will not be deprived in any way as far as far
as development is concerned. Whatever be the political differences
(between us), Centre-state dispute should not be there”
