A day after the Tatas announced suspension of work at the Singur small car plant, Trinamool Congress leader Partha Chatterjee on Wednesday met West Bengal Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi apparently to decide on a mediator to resolve the impasse.

Chatterjee, who met the Governor for the fourth consecutive day, was closeted with him for about one-and-a -half hours.

They are understood to have discussed the issue of identifying a mediator to resolve the Singur impasse, sources said.

The governor invited former Bombay High Court Chief Justice Chittatosh Mukherjee to Raj Bhavan and was believed to have sought legal opinion on selecting a mediator.
Sources said the governor could have sought advice from Mukherjee on whether there was legal sanction for him to be a mediator or he might have requested the former chief justice to assume the role.

Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee has requested the governor to assume the role of mediator to solve the imbroglio involving the Tata Motors Nano plant site.

The governor has assured him that he will consider the request.
