Nano still alive in CPI-M poll campaign

In an attempt to paint the image of the opposition as anti-industry and pin down Trinamool Congress which spearheaded an agitation against land acquisition in Singur, CPI-M has prominently highlighted Nano and industrialisation in its poll campaign.

In his election campaign at different places, Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee has attacked the Trinamool over the issue and said if Nano project came up in the state, 6000 people would have got employment besides job opportunities in the ancillaries.

To capitalise on his government's pro-industry image, he said the Trinamool indulged in 'negative politics' and put up road blocks to the state government's industrialisation efforts.

Unfazed by the charge, both Congress and Trinamool Congress which have formed an alliance, questioned the LF government's track record wondering why West Bengal, which was once a top-ranking state in industry, lost its glory during the Left rule.
