Congress on Friday said it would never like the Tatas to pull out their small car project from Singur, but would also not like interests of the poor farmers to be affected.
"Congress does not at all want departure of the Tata Motors from West Bengal, but it should not be at the cost of the poor farmers of Singur," state Congress legislature party leader Manas Bhuinya said in Kolkata.
Holding the state government responsible for the crisis at Singur "by its defiance of the agreement at Raj Bhavan", Bhuinya said another tripartite meeting between stakeholders for the land, government and leaders of agitations, was required as suggested by the PCC Chief P R Dasmunshi to resolve Singur impasse.
"Congress has always favoured land for land policy, job for the land-losers' family and economic benefit to the land-losers at Singur," he said.
He said that PCC would organise a meeting at Singur on September 28 which would be addressed by Dasmunshi.
