A day after Ratan Tata threatened to pull out the small car project from Singur in the wake of violence and disruptions, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee today said the first 'Nano' car would roll out in October.
"Some state governments have offered land to the Tatas to shift their small car plant from Singur, but I would like to assert that the project will be a reality," Bhattacharjee told a hurriedly-called press conference in Kolkata.
"I hope it will be implemented in time and the first car will roll out in October. Nobody can obstruct it," he said.
Stating that he shared the concern of the Tata Motors chairman, Bhattacharjee urged him to stay in the state. "We want the project to grow here."
He said 85 per cent of the project's construction was over and work in the ancillary units was in progress.
