West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadev Bhattacharjee met Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi at the Raj Bhavan on Saturday evening to discuss Singur issues.
The meeting comes a day after the Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee met the governor seeking his intervention for fresh talks to thrash out a settlement on Singur.
Bhattacherjee who arrived at the Raj Bhavan at 6:00 pm had earlier categorically ruled out return of more than 70 acres from the Nano plant site as demanded by Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee.
Things have come to a standstill with the two sides remaining stuck on their respective stands.
After her meeting with Gandhi on Friday Banerjee said that the governor informed her he would talk to the state government too.
Banerjee said she had urged the governor to impress upon the state government for operationalise the September 7 agreement signed in his presence with the Chief Minister to resolve the impasse.
While the Trinamool chief has said she still hoped that the Singur impasse would be resolved if the government was serious about implementing the agreement, Bhattacherjee said a solution was possible if the Opposition accepted the newly-announced rehabilitation package.
