After Mamata Banerjee has come into power as Chief Minister of Bengal, she has passed a legislation in the state Govt. to get the land from Tata in Singur back to the state and then give back the land to the farmers. Mamata was the key leader in the protest against Tata’s plant in Singur Bengal, at that time, she was not in power but still she manages to move Tata Nano project out of Bengal with constant protest of the people against the land acquisition.
On 21st June Tuesday night, Bengal police has taken over the possession of the land from the Tata and have pasted a copy of the new legislation at the plant’s gate. Tata has appealed to the Kolkata High court on 22nd June Wednesday morning against this action but court has rejected Tata Motor’s appeal to intervene in this case. Court has directed Tata’s lawyer to serve a notice to the Government of Bengal to present their side of the case. Looks like this battle may not be in favour of the Tatas as Govt. is not at all willing to take a decision in Tata’s favour in this case. We will update you on more developments on this case as they happen.
